Affordable Pet Care

Providing Affordable Pet Care


The Medical Center is the only local veterinary facility that offers discounted, full-service care to income-qualified and any other 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. To qualify for discount, clients must have an income of $55,000 per year or less and be able to show a photo identification.

Without its help, the clinic’s clients might be unable to care for their animal companions when they become sick or injured. Each year, the Center treats about 5,000 income-qualified patients.


Additional Resources


Food Bank


The Humane Rescue Alliance hosts a permanent community pet food and supply bank to help families hold on to and care for their animal companions during difficult times. Supported entirely by private donations, the Rescuers’ Food Bank collects donations of food, toys, and supplies for cats and dogs and distributes them to income-qualified clients free of charge.

HRA’s food and supply bank has become a critical lifeline for many people and animals in the area, helping to keep thousands of dogs and cats in loving homes and out of DC-area shelters.  

To donate to our food bank, contact development@humanerescuealliance.org for guidelines and information. Food can also be shipped to HRA directly via Amazon’s dog or cat food portal.
