Throughout the month of August, Oregon Humane Society is hosting Wellness and Vaccine Clinics for pets. These clinics are designed to support pet owners who need routine care for their pets or are struggling to find a veterinary clinic that is accepting new patients.
“Veterinary clinics in our community have been extremely busy, so it can be difficult to get your pet in for wellness care,” says Dr. Steve Kochis, OHS Chief Medical Officer. “But preventative care now can help avoid health problems later.”
OHS’ Vaccine and Wellness Clinic is also being held two months ahead of the opening of the Community Veterinary Hospital, which will provide a wide range of services.

Scheduled to open in October 2022, OHS’ Community Veterinary Hospital will provide subsidized care for those who may be struggling to care for their pet. The hospital is part of the New Road Ahead expansion project which broke ground in June 2021 after years of planning and needs analysis.
“We know there are people in our community who love their pets but are not able to afford veterinary care, especially for emergencies or chronic conditions,” adds Dr. Kochis. “The Community Veterinary Hospital will play a key role in keeping pets with the families who love them.
