EMANCIPET: Low Cost. Big Heart.

January 8th, 2018


For almost 20 years, Emancipet, a non-profit founded in central Texas, has served more than a half a million pets. A growing organization, Emancipet is building a national low cost veterinary care system, and in February of 2017, Northeast Philadelphia became home to an Emancipet low-cost pet clinic. This clinic is the newest in Emancipet’s system, and its first location outside Texas, where it operates in four cities.

At Emancipet, a team of licensed, trained veterinarians and veterinary professionals offer spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, microchips, monthly flea and heartworm prevention, puppy and kitten de-worming, and treatment for common conditions, such as skin and ear infections. While surgeries require appointments, all other services are available on a walk-in basis.

In it’s first year, Emancipet’s Philadelphia branch performed over 1,600 spay and neuter surgeries and more than 2,500 walk-in visits.
Because Emancipet believes that veterinary care should be affordable and accessible to all pet owners, the organization advocates for public policy that improves the lives of pets in underserved communities.

Through grassroots efforts, including door-to-door outreach, establishing relationships, and a caring presence in the community, Emancipet is fast becoming a trusted resource for pet owners in Philadelphia’s northeast neighborhood.
