Medical Center: Hours & Information

The Medical Center, located at 71 Oglethorpe St. NW, is open to the public, by appointment only, Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. To schedule an appointment call (202)726-CARE(2273) or email medicalcenter@humanerescuealliance.org.


Care for Shelter Animals

The Medical Center’s team of veterinarians, volunteer veterinary specialists, and technicians provide medical care for the animals housed at our adoption centers as well as community cats and Pets for Life program recipients.


Care for Companion Animals of Income Qualified DC Residents

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

Without its help, the more than 5,000 income-qualified patients the clinic’s treats annually might be unable to care for their animal companions when they become sick or injured.

 
Training for Veterinary Students

The Medical Center attracts dozens of senior veterinary students each year to train in shelter medicine under its veterinarians. Students come from as far away as California and overseas for the two-to-three-week externships. The Medical Center welcomes volunteers and veterinary students.
