New Location Placencia Humane Society


Regular vet clinics are held generally on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 9am- 2pm at the Placencia Humane Society clinic building on Airstrip Road, north of the Airport and near the new Polyclinic. (See our calendar for the clinic schedule.)  Our Outreach services are generally offered the 3rd Friday of the month. 

The clinic is staffed by volunteers and visiting vets who are brought in from other parts of the country – the Peninsula does not have any veterinarian in residence.   

Thanks to all the hotels including Sirenian Bay Resort & Villas, Mariposa Beach Resort, Maya Beach Hotel, Azure Del Mar and Pelican Perch that provide lodging for our vets free of charge. A special thanks to Turtle Inn for the amazing pizzas donated for lunch for the vets and volunteers every Friday clinic.  And thanks to  RE/MAX 1st Choice for providing all the printing of our Clinic forms. 

Services offered at the clinic include spaying and neutering, vaccinations, veterinary check-ups, treatments for mange, TVT (transmissible venereal tumor disease), ehrlichea (tick fever) – and whatever else might ail a pet.  We also provide microchips and  International Health Certificates for those needing to travel with their pets. 

Some services, such as X-rays and lab work currently must be sent to out.  

The clinic phone number is 613-PETS (7387).  Appointments are needed and can be made by calling the clinic number, by WhatsApp or by Facebook messenger.  Dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers (or some sort of container).  For pets scheduled for surgery – no food after midnight of the night before scheduled surgery. 

Some pet products are available for sale at the clinics, including collars and leashes, a limited supply of flea and tick preventatives, and grooming aids.  You can also purchase Placencia Humane Society t-shirts and wine glasses the clinic. 

Please note, Placencia Pharmacy carries a variety of pet treatments including heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, vitamins, and shampoos.
