The Clare Eddy Thaw Animal Hospital, located between the Robin Sommers Animal Admission & Care Center and the Lapides Adoption Center at the Santa Animal Shelter Campus, serves both the Shelter and public veterinary needs. The Hospital’s public entrance is at the front of the building; the Shelter’s Clinic entrance is at the back of the building.

The Hospital offers a range of services to the general public. Payment is due at the time of service, and we require some form of identification, especially if customers are paying with credit cards or checks. The Hospital does employ a sliding scale for income-qualified clients. Proof of need is required. The Hospital also accepts CareCredit, a separate credit company which provides monthly payment plans.
