Free and Cheap Veterinary Care near Forth Worth Texas

Free and Cheap Veterinary Care near Forth Worth Texas

The rising costs of veterinary care force many of us in low-income situations to face heartbreak when a pet becomes seriously ill or when an emergency occurs. It is difficult to decide between healing a family member and other obligations, like rent or food! Thankfully, many compassionate services around Forth Worth will help our pets!


Pet Help near Fort Worth Texas

Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT)

HSNT has a free spay and neuter program for those residing in North Texas who are receiving government assistance, worker’s compensation, or disability. You must apply to the program by filling out their application online. If you are unable to join the program, they do offer a sliding scale fee program based on your income to create a very affordable spay and neuter program. You can contact the Spay and Neuter Clinic at (817) 332-4768, extension 112.

They also offer low-cost vaccinations and tests once per month. The cost ranges from $5, for Rabies Vaccinations, to $20, for FELV/FIV Tests. Every day they provide a service to low-income households that allows you to have your pet microchipped for just $15 at their Main Shelter Location, 9 am. to 5 pm.

Sadly, euthanasia is sometimes required. HSNT offers humane ways for no cost to alleviate our pets suffering.

If a dire emergency occurs, HSNT is the only humane agency in North Texas that offers a K-911 service 24/7. This service is reached at (817) 891-5911. This service is rather specific, as they state: “This program is designed to respond to animals in urgent need of rescue or humane euthanasia to alleviate suffering. We are unable to provide veterinary care and K-911 is not a substitute for an emergency veterinary clinic.”


Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP)

TCAP is a non-profit organization that offers low-cost services, from $5 to $35 for vaccines. Most of their services cost around $10 or $15. Vaccinations are available Monday-Friday, 9 am. to 12 pm. They also offer spay and neuter, dental cleaning, and wellness services at low prices. Call them today at (817) 837-4500.

Spay Neuter Your Pets (SNYP)

SNYO offers free spay and neuter services for any Forth Worth Resident. This service can be reached at 972-472-3500, extension 5 or through their website. They also have “FREE FIX, Rabies Shot, and Microchip.” You can find this information under their special programs.

Don’t Forget to Feed Me Pet Food Bank

There are times when money gets extra tight, and you need pet food. Fortunately, you can contact the Fort Worth HOPE center at (817) 451-6288. Their community food bank also has pet food! Their office hours are from Monday-Friday, 9 am. to 4:30 pm. Other distribution centers can be found on this website. They have additional locations in Central Forth Worth, Keller, and Mansfield.

We are a low income family receiving disability. We adopted a small/ medium male dog from a Fort Worth shelter. He is a terrier mix. He's energetic, happy, friendly dog. Has s good appetite. He has always been a thirsty boy since we adopted him, but his thirst is increasing and urinates so much. We can't afford veterinarian care, but we love this little dog he's like family. Can you please help?

I am seeking a veterinarian in fort worth. I am in South fort Worth. Noticing that my Layla, 12.8 Oz cat that I adore, hasn't ate much today, has been a bit clingy the last 2 days, watery eyes and her fur looks oily. She hasn't had that little zip in her step either. I'm listening to her now and she sounds like a little snorting pig, but wheezing and grunting snore. Did give her a little Benadryl yesterday, but I do not think it helped. I do not know anyone, in this area or anyone with my budget that would possibly know of that that I could afford. .. I would appreciate any input. Thank you so much!

Our cat suddenly got very cloudy eyes yesterday, and just over night they turned almost white. I google and YouTube whole day and still have no idea. Could be FIP or just eye disease. My husband and I are both international students and we don’t have income. We only have money barely cover the tuition and life spending. Our cat was from our next door neighbor who moved out without taking the cat. She strayed in the community for a while, and then one day she came to our apartment, laid down on the floor and didn’t want to leave again. It has been 4 years ago. We may need to leave the U.S. soon. We are kind of super busy these days. Can you tell me where and who can give her a check-up with affordable price?
