Phil Scholz Veterinary Surgery Center

Valley Humane Society’s Phil Scholz Veterinary Surgery Center provides much-needed spay and neuter services to the public as well as shelter and rescue partners, many of whom experience significant delays in locating available spay/neuter appointments for their adoptable animals. With the ability to perform up to 140 surgeries a week, the surgery center will significantly reduce local pet overpopulation, enable rescue groups to ready their homeless pets for adoption faster, and move animals from shelters—including Valley Humane Society—into homes more quickly.

The surgery center also offers specialty procedures for clients of veterinary referral when lifesaving outcomes for their patients are threatened by financial challenges. This increased access to necessary care will help keep owned pets out of shelters and in the arms of the guardians who already love them.

You can help adoptable animals, reduce pet overpopulation, and keep pets out of shelters! Donate to Valley Humane Society’s Medical Assistance Fund to ensure cost is not a lifesaving barrier and provide need-based treatment both internally for clients of the Phil Scholz Veterinary Surgery Center, as well as externally for Valley Humane Society’s adoptable dogs and cats when they require extensive outside medical care.
