With donor help, ABC provides access to affordable vet care for many pet owners who experience tremendous hardship even in normal times. In March, ABC shifted to saving human lives by limiting days and services. The lives saved by caring decisions are perhaps yours, your loved ones', ABC staff, and other humans in our community (and beyond).
We are wearing masks and you will need to remember your face mask, as well. Enjoy time with your kitties, pups and human loved ones, and let us know how we can help you.
View our website before calling since most answers and info can be found there, including making surgery appointments. Call volume is high, so text, email, or leave a voicemail if our phone staff are on the other line and miss your call. It may take 1/2 day to return your call.

Spay/Neuter Surgery Appointments are Available
Surgery appointments are open for McLennan County cats and dogs. Schedule easily online. Heartworm tests, microchips, vaccinations, and flea/tick/heartworm prevention can be given while your cat or dog, kitten or puppy is here on the day of the surgery. Outdoor cats arriving in traps don't need an appointment for surgery.
Drive-Thru Window and Shipping for Flea/Tick/Heartworm Medications
If your cat is due for a 12 month prescription visit, or your dog is due for an annual heartworm test as part of the prescription visit, these requirements are being delayed. You may purchase up to 6 months of flea/tick/heartworm prevention (except Trifexis for dogs) for your existing pet patient at ABC.
Online pharmacy https://www.animalbirthcontrol.org/online-pharmacy or
Drive Thru https://www.animalbirthcontrol.org/drive-thru-pharmacy (payments are taken by phone to further reduce conversation and contact risks).
* The cost margins at ABC are small and significant in-clinic exclusive rebates on medications help you and your household budget. Also, most medications are eligible for in-clinic exclusive rebates. When you buy from ABC you help provide vet care for the many animals in our community that need access to affordable vet care like spay/neuter, heartworm disease treatment and prevention and critical vaccinations. We are grateful that you "sPay it forward" for animals in our community.
Curbside Vaccinations, Heartworm Tests, etc (non-surgical)
McLennan County remains under recommendations to stay home and avoid unnecessary interactions. McLennan County pets in need of vaccination boosters, rabies vaccinations, heartworm testing or vaccinations for grooming/boarding needs will be served.
Curbside hours are 10am-2pm (registrations will continue until the maximum number of pets we can serve have been reached for the day).
Curbside process: park, check-in at the front window. Then you will get a phone call or text when the technician is ready for your pet. One person interacting with staff at 6 ft, don't forget your mask. (ABC requires this of staff and pet owners for all interactions inside and outdoors on the property). No smoking.
Bring a drink, snack, and prepare for the possibility of a wait.
