Due to unforeseen staffing concerns, the Medical Center will not be offering veterinary or surgical appointments in September and October. We encourage pet owners to utalize our walk-in vaccine clinic, which will operate as usual.
HRA is recruiting for several positions for our medical team. We are looking for compassionate individuals that share our belief that all animals, whether owned or in the care of our shelter, deserve the highest level of care possible, and will go the extra mile to ensure they get it. Our Medical Center is a busy one, serving several thousand shelter patients and close to 8,000 patients in our public hospital each year. Learn more and apply at humanerescuealliance.org/careers.
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 Help Out, Partner, and Engage (HOPE) program recipients.

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.
