Sean and Oshean brought in their 16-month-old miniature Doberman/Chihuahua mix to be spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated today. They adopted Roxy when she was four months old and she has become the center of their world. As Oshean says, “She even made friends with our two cats right away.” “She’s such a good dog,” Sean says.

CinnamonE (the captal “e” at the end is added intentionally, “so it will be different”) belongs to Sandra Martinez. They grew up together; CinnamonE is currently 13 years old, and Sandra has had her since she was 1.5 years old. Sandra got a very skinny CinnamonE from a lady who had a lot of dogs […]

When Laura’s Shih Tzu passed away, she was devastated. The pup had been her constant companion in the years after her husband died, and her passing left an empty spot in Laura’s heart once again. Laura’s family encouraged her to get another dog, and when her niece found a litter of puppies at a near […]

Neighbors, Terry Brackin and Dana Harris teamed up to help each other and their furry friends.

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, […]
