While traveling back home cross country, Fenix had a crisis. He started panting and collapsing in the car while we were crossing the desert. I called Dr Stan from the middle of nowhere and made an appointment for as soon as we could get to town. Dr Stan is a calm aware professional and calmed Fenix during his diagnosis. He needed immediate surgery for an abdominal mass and Dr. Stan proceeded to troubleshoot a complicated health profile. With Dr Stan's expertise Fenix recovered, and was able to return to his job as my sister's service dog.

I lived all over the country and this is one of the best vet clinics I've been to. They really seem to care and know when we came. We have had two sick dogs and had many a visits, phone calls, and questions they never seemed to mind.

Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
