About Options

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 is expected to serve more than 15,000 pets in its first year of operation with the capacity to grow.

Angel Fund

 

You can support the work of Options by donating to the Angel Fund program, which provides very low-cost or free veterinary service for pets who are in desperate need of help but whose owners cannot afford even our low costs.​

While many who cannot afford veterinary care will be able to afford Options Veterinary Care fees, there is still a segment of pet owners who have such limited income that they will need help. We have encountered senior citizens on limited incomes, unemployed individuals, families with children or unexpected human medical expenses, who love their pets, but cannot afford veterinary care.

The Angel Fund helps in cases where there is no other option for payment. Donations to the Angel Fund are tax deductible.

Community Cats

 

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.
