About P.E.T.S.

"Preventing Euthanasia Through Sterilization"

P.E.T.S. is a Wichita Falls non-profit organization with 501c3 tax exempt status. 

P.E.T.S. was formed in April 2007 to combat the overpopulation of unwanted pets in Wichita Falls, TX, and surrounding communities. From 10 surgeries on July 11th, 2007, we have grown to an average of 200 per week today thanks to the support of our clients, donors, and volunteers.

P.E.T.S Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic is located in historic downtown Wichita Falls near the Wee-Chi-Tah statue at Berends Landing, 500 Wichita Street, Wichita Falls, TX, 76306. P.E.T.S can be contacted at (940) 723-PETS (7387).

P.E.T.S. is not a full-service vet clinic. We can not treat sick or injured animals. We encourage all pet owners to establish and maintain a relationship with a full-service veterinarian. 

In addition to high-quality, low-cost spays and neuters, and preventative services, P.E.T.S. does more for Wichita Falls area pets and their owners, check out our Programs page for more info.
