“If you wish to become (a client), you’re aware that East Village Animal Hospital offers veterinary services to low-income individuals and families, and those on social assistance,” reads the official EVAH website. “By requesting to become a client you are certifying that your total household income is below the appropriate figure…”

EVAH says it offers comprehensive preventative medicine services, including spay, neuter, vaccination, micro-chipping, anti-parasite treatments, and general out-patient medical and surgical services for pets cared for by low-income individuals and those on social assistance. EVAH also provides services to animal rescue groups, humane societies, and municipal shelters.

Prospective clients are required to show proof of government assistance or a copy of their Notice of Assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency for each adult household resident.

To be an approved client, a one-income household cannot exceed $40,131, a two-income household cannot exceed $49,956, and a three-income home cannot earn more than $61,413.

EVAH adds that they will still consider clients that don’t meet their financial criteria, but have fallen on hard times — like a recent loss of employment.

The organization accepts volunteers and donations.
