Philly Pet Pages
For the past 18 years, Emancipet, a non-profit founded in central Texas, has served more than a half a million pets. A growing organization, Emancipet is building a national low cost veterinary care system, and in February of 2017, Northeast Philadelphia became home to an Emancipet low-cost pet clinic. This clinic is the newest in Emancipet’s system, and its first location outside Texas, where it operates in four cities.

Emancipet’s mission is to make vet care affordable and accessible for all pet owners. CEO Amy Mill said, “We want everybody to have a pet and to keep them for as long as they possibly can.”
Pet owners looking for low-cost veterinary care are in luck. Emancipet opened a low-cost clinic Tuesday on Adams Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. They offer spray and neuter surgeries, vaccinations, microchips and treat common conditions in cats as well as dogs.
