OVERVIEW:   In partnership with the City of Los Angeles Animal Services and with generous support from Michelson Found Animals Foundation, Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine is excited to announce the opening of the WesternU East Valley Spay/Neuter Center. The clinic, located at the East Valley Animal Shelter in Van Nuys, will offer spay and neuter services to the shelter and local communities along with preventive care.

Our first students will begin rotation through the clinic in January 2018. The clinic will officially open to the public on Friday, October 27, 2017 and will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Call 818-510-0197 to make an appointment.
