- Who can use the Medical Center for general veterinary services?
The Medical Center accepts canine & feline patients—by appointment only—belonging to income-qualified residents of the District of Columbia; Calvert, Charles, Frederick, Montgomery, and Prince George’s counties in Maryland; Arlington, Clarke, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William, Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Warren counties in Virginia; the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Fredericksburg, Manassas, and Manassas Park in Virginia; and Jefferson County, West Virginia. If you’re a resident of one of these municipalities and make $55,000 or less annually, you may qualify for discounted veterinary services at the Washington Animal Rescue League.
We recommend that dogs and cats over 6 months old be spayed or neutered, and reserve the right to deny long-term veterinary care to intact adult dogs and cats. The Medical Center offers reduced-cost spay and neuter services. To see if you qualify, call the Medical Center at 202-726-2273. Please leave a voice message if a receptionist is not available, and we will return your call.
