The Wellness Services We Provide
Starting your pet out on the right paw.
Medical care is an important part of responsible pet ownership. That’s why our veterinary clinic emphasizes wellness care and oversees a limited health guarantee on pets adopted from the APA Adoption Center. Our veterinarians also supervise the daily care and well-being of the animals in the shelter while they are waiting to be adopted.
More about our clinic.
Our clinic provides limited, routine outpatient care for cats and dogs only, including vaccinations, heartworm medication, flea treatment and minor illnesses. We provide required rabies vaccinations and tags for residents of both St. Louis City and St. Louis County. We do not provide services such as X-rays, lab work and emergency care. Because we do not have to support these services and equipment, we are able to keep our prices competitive.
The APA Adoption Center established St. Louis’ first pet assistance program for victims of domestic violence in 1997. Because concern for the safety of pets is often a barrier to leaving a violent home environment, the APA works with area domestic shelters and anti-violence agencies to provide temporary foster care for pets of domestic violence victims transitioning to safety.
SafeCare is temporary boarding and care for pets so victims of domestic violence can get to safety, without having to leave their pets behind.
