Mercer Vet Clinic for the Homeless


Please consider donating through PayPal, which takes a smaller transaction fee than GoFundMe, or mailing us your donation. Thank you.

The Mercer Veterinary Clinic for the Homeless is a free clinic that cares for the pets of the homeless population of Sacramento, CA. It has been running since 1992.

In 2013 the warehouse we ran our clinic out of was demolished. We raised funds to buy our mobile trailer that we are currently in. To abide by city building codes, the trailer is being made into permanent structure, which requires city permits and a lot of renovations. These costs have been well over our normal annual fundraising needs of around $20k.

The city had the right to shut us down at any moment. However, thanks to our generous donors the clinic will survive!

We treat hundreds of dogs and cats belonging to homeless individuals at our free monthly clinic. This includes providing vaccinations, flea and heartworm preventative, and care for sick animals. Every animal is spayed/neutered to help reduce the homeless pet population.

Without the clinic, these animals will go without essential medications and vaccinations. Their owners do not have the resources to bring them to regular clinics. Some of them will succumb to illness.

Please consider helping the Mercer clinic. These pets are often the only positive things in their owners' lives. They deserve proper care.
