uring times of crisis and difficulty, people often turn to family and friends for additional love and stability. For many Houstonians, pets play a vital role in their lives, providing comfort and companionship. As a veterinary service, Emancipet was deemed an essential business, allowing Emancipet’s clinic doors to remain open, continuing to offer low-cost, high-quality veterinary services to Houston pet families. Emancipet has a fundamental belief that people love their pets and will do what is best for their pets when given the opportunity to do so. Emancipet clients show this love through their actions, showing up daily to obtain the veterinary care and treatment for their beloved dogs and cats. On March 16th, 2020, Emancipet opened its second Houston clinic, located at 8533 Gulf Freeway, 77017 (Monroe Plaza). Although Emancipet Monroe had to postpone its grand opening/ribbon cutting ceremony due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, the opening of Emancipet Monroe was a huge celebration in and of itself, allowing Emancipet to begin running a two clinic model. During Emancipet Monroe’s initial ramp-up stage, March-July 2020, the two Houston Emancipet clinics (East End and Monroe) collectively performed approximately 4,500 spay/neuter surgeries, 16,000 wellness visits and 225 heartworm treatment procedures. Emancipet (Houston) recently celebrated its

FIVE year anniversary serving the community, with plans to expand locations and services in the near future. Emancipet continues to offer low-prices and high-quality veterinary services with $69 spay/neuter services, $15 vaccines, $9 office visit, low-cost heartworm treatment plans plus flea and heartworm preventative medications (emancipet.org/houston). Wellness visits are walk-in only and spay/neuter appointments can be made by calling 713-321-2713. By keeping prices low, Emancipet’s low-cost services help to increase the access to affordable veterinary care for Houston pet families, helping to keep pets healthy and home with the families who love them.
