 Book a Callback Appointment


Schedule Your Free Vet Exam (you have two options)

  • Option 1 – Using the VCA flyer, make an appointment at any VCA hospital listed on the back of the flyer in your adoption paperwork.
    • This certificate is valid within the first 14 days after adoption.
  • Option 2 - To get you and your pet off on the best start possible, these veterinary offices have generously offered to provide a complimentary vet exam when you adopt a pet from San Diego Humane Society. Simply choose a vet office, schedule an appointment and remember to bring your Complimentary Vet Exam certificate to your appointment..
    • This certificate is valid within the first seven days after adoption.

If your vet discovers a medical concern that we did not (something not in the waiver/contract). Call our Wellness Center at 619-279-5085 within 14 days of adoption to schedule a post adoption appointment before approving any treatment through your own veterinarian.
