Thank You for Your Patience!
As many other businesses and veterinary facilities in our community and across the country, SPCA Florida is currently experiencing severe staffing shortages. Due to this, our Medical Center has had to make some temporary changes to ensure that we are serving our clients and their furry family as safely and adequately as possible. This also means we are unable to safely accommodate as many furry friends as we would prefer, and may have to refer you out to another facility to ensure your pet receives the quality care they deserve.
SPCA Florida's Medical Center will temporarily not be answering live phone calls, however we will still be accepting voicemails and calling clients back within 24-72 hours. We understand that this may cause inconveniences for some of our clients, and we are deeply apologetic for that. We are eager to get back on the phones with you all! We ask for kindness and patience as we train new staff and work tirelessly to meet each of our client's and pet's needs with the few hands we have.
At the time of check-in, clients who must drop their pets off for procedures or work-in appointments will be provided with a direct contact for updates on their pets while they are here at the hospital. At the time of discharge, we will also provide our clients with a direct contact, in the event they are experiencing any concerns for their pet post operative, or after a recent appointment. It is important that these lines are used appropriately to make sure every pet parent can get the updates and support they deserve.
For non-urgent requests, or general Medical Center inquiries, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make a Medical Center appointment request, you can utilize our app “Pet Page” or fill out the form at www.spcamedical.org/appointment.
