Vaccinations Services

HSMSC provides low-cost vaccinations as resources allow for Shelby County residents who receive government assistance. You will be required to pay a portion of your fee upfront. Refunds will not be given for missed appointments. Your appointment can be rescheduled if you give us at least 72 hours notice. The fee you will pay ($30) covers a basic examination for one pet. Additional services and prices can be seen below. Please note that animals over six months old are required to be already spayed/neutered in order to receive low-cost services. 

How it works
Our Process

Appointments are only available 30 days in advance. If you do not see any available appointments, check back the next day for an opening. Due to the high volume of requests, we are typically booked out 1 month in advance. Please note that a $30 non-refundable deposit is required to make your appointment and is applied to the total cost. We cannot treat sick or injured pets at this clinic, or pets with chronic medical conditions. A Rabies Vaccine is required for all pets at the time of the appointment unless proof of current vaccination status can be provided. When arriving for your appointment, dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a carrier. Questions? Contact our Director of Animal Care at mtoeller@memphishumane.org
