Pro-Bone-O Veterinary Care has been in the Eugene community since 1998. On the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, we hold a free veterinary clinic for individuals experiencing homelessness to bring their pets. We are currently operating in a space provided by the Eugene Mission. We are a 100% volunteer run organization that relies on community donations. At our clinics, we provide flea/tick prevention, pet food, dog collars, leashes, vaccinations, spay/neuter vouchers, and wellness checks. In addition, when an animal comes in that needs a more advanced veterinary procedure, we contract with one of the local veterinarians to provide that surgery at no cost to the client. We believe in the human animal bond, many of our client’s pets are their main companion. Their pets provide a sense of hope, responsibility, often a reason for sobriety, and a reason for being. Our mission is split into four goals: (1) improve the health and well-being of pets of people who are homeless and cannot afford veterinary care (2) prevent the birth of unwanted litters through providing education and financial assistance for spay/neuter (3) stop the spread of infectious diseases and parasites in the community through vaccinations (4) to encourage and foster the human-animal bond.
