About the Clinic

  • **Update Regarding Clinics: We are back to seeing patients inside Hennepin Church from 12-4 pm but we are only letting one (masked and vaccinated) person inside the building with their pet. We are doing a mix of pre-scheduled appointments and walk-in visits that don't require an appointment. There is a high demand for our services right now and appointments are going to those clients who came as walk-ins the previous month and were unable to be seen, so we are prioritizing their pets by giving them a prescheduled appointment the following month. 
  • Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of CoVID or if you have been exposed! Masks are required as well.
  • VeTouch Clinics are typically held on the first Sunday of every month.
  • We provide care for dogs and cats. 
  • All care is free.
  • Se habla espanol.
