Last month, the ASPCA® celebrated the grand opening of the Brooklyn Community Veterinary Center (CVC), supported by the Alex and Elisabeth Lewyt Charitable Trust.
The Brooklyn CVC serves East New York, an area with limited existing resources for veterinary care, and is similar to the ASPCA facility in the Bronx. Before the construction of the Brooklyn CVC was complete, the ASPCA was operating a mobile clinic in the parking lot to help pet owners affected by the pandemic.
“Our goal is to keep pets and their families together, which is why we continue to expand our work in New York City.”
The now permanent, state-of-the-art facility offers partially and fully subsidized veterinary care to Brooklyn residents, including high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter (HQHVSN) surgeries and vaccinations for homeless dogs and cats being cared for by animal rescue organizations, including Animal Care Centers of New York City.
The Bronx and Brooklyn CVCs are 2 of 3 centers the ASPCA is building across New York City, with an additional facility opening in Queens in 2022.
The ASPCA also has similar programs in Los Angeles and Miami, providing veterinary services to eliminate barriers to lifesaving care.
