Heartworm treatment costing 50-70 percent less than the average $1,000 price in Austin is now available at Emancipet Central Austin. The typical cost of heartworm treatment is not affordable for all pet owners, sometimes resulting in pets turned in to shelters or not surviving the disease. Emancipet’s pricing ranges from $225-$495 depending on the size […]

Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting lots of of cub scouts, boy scouts, girl scouts, and of course, pets named Scout. They’ve all been pretty great. Lots of troops and individual scouts have chosen to volunteer, fundraise, and tour our clinics to earn their badges and medals. It’s always a cool experience for […]

We’re just gonna say it. There is nothing cuter than a kitten, and we love what we call springtime at Emancipet: “kitten season.” In all seven of our low-cost pet health clinics, our lobbies and exam rooms are full of kittens bouncing around, knocking things off exam tables, and generally being adorable troublemakers. Most importantly, […]

We all know fundraising is an integral part of any nonprofit organization, but all too often we feel  that we don’t have the time or the energy to dedicate to it that we wish we could. But who can blame us? Cultivating (and maintaining) relationships with donors, developing fundraising strategies, and then finding ways to […]

by Jill Beckwith, Chief Philanthropy Officer When I’m talking with fundraisers from other animal care non-profits, there is one thing I say that almost always elicits a reaction: One of our major sources of donations is our clients. Emancipet clinics, after all, are focused on providing affordable veterinary care to families in underserved neighborhoods. Families […]

We are the kind of team that just cannot leave well enough alone. When we hit a high-water mark, we celebrate, and then we look at how we can do it more safely, more efficiently, and with bigger smiles on our faces! This “there is no finish line” approach has helped our clinics evolve over […]

by Myles Chadwick and Laura Helmueller, DVM The first time that I stepped back into the surgery and prep area of an Emancipet spay/neuter clinic I was immediately impressed by how quiet it was. In fact, it took me several minutes of observation before I realized that there were actually more than 40 dogs and cats […]

They are driven by a desire to transform something – to make it better. Some change makers are focused on changing themselves: self-improvement is their goal. They want to […]
