Find a Veterinarian

One of the best ways to ensure a long and happy life for your pet is to establish a relationship with a veterinarian. The Anti-Cruelty Society recommends visiting your veterinarian within the first few weeks of adopting your new family member to discuss your pet’s health needs and to start a wellness program to best care for your pet.

Several area veterinary hospitals support the Society and provide special services to our adopters.

Our Veterinary Ambassadors Program offers two levels of benefits:

  • VCA Animal Hospitals offer Society adopters a complimentary health exam within 14 days of your adoption date as well as complimentary 14 day follow up care (up to $500). VCA Hospitals have 25 clinics in the Chicago area and more than 800 clinics across the country. See a list of VCA partners here or visit to find a location near you.
  • The Society also partners with other local Veterinary Ambassadors who will provide our adopters with an initial wellness examination for $20. This benefit is limited to one visit within 90 days of adopting from the Society. In addition, any and all diagnostic tests, vaccinations, or procedures recommended at the wellness examination will be provided at a five percent discount. Some of our Veterinary Ambassadors may include additional benefits. See a list of other local veterinary partners.

We hope you take advantage of this helpful program as we are all concerned for the health and well-being of your new family member.

Thank you to our partners whose support makes our work possible
