WELCOME To Last Chance Club

Since 1993 HOMESTEAD VETERINARY CLINIC has provided good vet care at affordable cost to Salem, Oregon area pets. It started CARING PAWS to provide free care for over 80 dogs and cats at a local humane society saving them from euthanasia. In 2006, the clinic’s mission evolved from a commercial practice to a truly “rescue practice” with the creation of HOMESTEAD VETERINARY CLINIC THE LAST CHANCE CLUB (HVCLCC) which provides free-to-rescue cost veterinary care for animals in a crisis or rescue situation. OUR MISSION: PROVIDE VET CARE FOR AS MANY RESCUE ANIMALS AS POSSIBLE.

It is a sad fact in today’s world that there are many abandoned, neglected and abused animals overwhelming private rescues, county animal control agencies or humane societies. Sadder still, is that these organizations are usually limited in funding and space to provide more than basic medical care for intake animals. Saddest, is that an animal with medical needs is usually killed because “it’s too expensive to treat them”.

HVC THE LAST CHANCE CLUB (HVCLCC) brings vet medical care to as many cases as possible by using “rescue costs” and donated free veterinary services. “RESCUE COSTS” are NOT ‘commercial costs’, NOT ‘reduced costs’, NOT ‘low costs’ but ‘actual’ costs not designed to make a profit. With “bare bones” costs for medical supplies and FREE professional veterinary treatment and surgery, cases can be completed at no-cost to 1/10 to 1/20 of commercial veterinary fees. This means an animal can receive medical aid and have a LAST CHANCE to live instead of die.

HVCLCC has worked with many local rescues and agencies saving them thousands of dollars in vet expenses. Post-treatment, an animal is more adoptable and generates an adoption fee for the agency instead of a euthanasia and disposal expense. HVCLCC also helps pet owners in vet care financial crisis whose pets face euthanasia because of lack of dollars for care.

THE LAST CHANCE CLUB's PURPOSE: to help as many animals as possible receive vet care, improve or manage health issues and have the option of adoption and life instead of death.
