All gifts matched up to $100,000 through midnight 12/31. Give now to protect more animals in our communities and keep families together.

First, look for a telemedicine appointment on the online appointment scheduler (your case manager can provide you with this link). If there is not one available or your issue cannot wait until the next available appointment, call the New York Avenue Front Desk at 202-723-5730. There is a veterinarian on call 24 hours a day for emergencies. The front desk staff will triage the issue with them and get back to you with the next steps.
We've created a convenient way to schedule medical appointments for your foster animal online. Use the foster appointment system to schedule regular vaccinations, and appointments in the event of illness. Your case manager can provide you with a link to schedule medical appointments. You can also find the link on the quick reference sheet you were provided when you picked up your foster.

Vaccine Appointments - to be used for any foster animal requiring vaccines and/or dewormer
The following foster medical needs can also be met at our Oglethorpe St NW facility:
