Wellness Clinic

A Compassionate Care Clinic will take place Monday, June 15 from 12pm-4pm at the SPCA located at 3355 Berkmar Drive in Charlottesville. We’re committed to keeping clients and our staff staying safe during COVID-19 with new admittance and check-out procedures. We request that all people wear masks.
Procedure for Clients
Drive to the right side of the shelter.
Check-in Process –
Please remain in your vehicle. A clinic assistant will come to your car to assign you a number and collect information. You will be contacted when it is your turn to check-in. After checking in, you will wait in your vehicle and your pet(s) will be brought into the clinic by a clinic assistant.
Evaluation and Treatment –
Physical examinations, diagnostics, and treatment will take place in the clinic while you wait outside. You will be contacted via cellphone (preferred method) or masked conversation outside to discuss findings, answer questions, and receive the estimate.
Check-out –
Check and credit card are preferred payment methods. After you have paid, you will be given medical records and medications (prepared and put in a plastic bag by the evaluation and treatment team).
