Affordable veterinary care for those in need in Northern Nevada
The Options Veterinary Care clinic is located at 4690 Longley Lane in Reno. It is accessible for Reno/Sparks residents, as well was those driving in from Carson City and communities to the east. The space has been renovated and opened in November 2020.
The clinic provides affordable spay/neuter and other services that a traditional veterinary clinic would – surgery, dental work, x-rays, diagnostics, and treatment – but it targets those who are unable to afford veterinary care otherwise.
The clinic also provides spay/neuter surgeries for nonprofit rescue groups, increasing the health and adoptability of homeless animals and community cats, including those located in nearby rural counties that have limited veterinary access.
The Options Veterinary Care clinic has served over 12,000 pets since it opened in December 2020.

You can be an Angel for a pet in need
No animal should suffer for economic reasons. As a nonprofit clinic Options relies upon the generosity of kind people like you to provide affordable veterinary care. Your donations help dogs and cats who would otherwise suffer without veterinary care when their person or family cannot afford even Options affordable rates.
The need is greater than ever in our community. When a pet becomes sick or injured affording the unexpected expense of veterinary care can be devastating for senior citizens on limited incomes, people living with disabilities, low-income families with children or people experiencing their own human health crisis and the accompanying medical expenses. Without Options Veterinary Care, pets and people suffer, animals are surrendered to local shelters increasing the burden on them and some pets are euthanized with treatable conditions for purely economic reasons. A heartbreaking outcome for veterinarians and pet owner alike.
Thanks to your kind support, Options is here to help. Donations are tax deductible.
Joey & Rose Fund
Started by a generous donor named Gloria in honor of her two cats Joey and Rose (seen at right), this fund provides help up to $500 for cats and dogs of seniors 65 or older who face financial barriers in getting necessary treatment for their pets.
Anyone can donate to the fund to extend its impact. Just make a donation — see how on our donate page here — and be sure to put "Joey and Rose" in the comment or memo field.
Community cats or feral cats are most effectively and humanely managed through a Trap/Neuter/Return program. To learn more about Trap/Neuter/Return, visit Alley Cat Allies.
Options Veterinary Care provides low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations for community cats across Northern Nevada. This program is funded by grants and donations from the public.
