Don't Be a "No Show"
When you make an appointment for surgery, we consider it an agreement that your animal(s) will be here on that day.
Since we can only schedule a certain number of surgeries per day, a “no show appointment” prevents other animals from getting the care that they need.
Our current schedule is full for the next 8 weeks.
Unfortunately, we are experiencing a very high rate of no-shows. This causes problems for everyone and wastes a valuable appointment slot.
If you can’t make it to your scheduled appointment — please let us know as soon as possible so we can try to fill that slot! Call us at (276] 591-5790.
Thanks so much 🐾
We are OPEN!
There are a few changes in our process, in order to best protect our staff, pet owners and pets.
Please be patient as we all work together to stay safe during this time.
Please follow the instructions you were given in your appointment confirmation email.
Our medical team will continue outside check-in and discharge. Please bring a face mask and a pen if possible.
If you have questions please contact us.
Dogs check-in at 8:00am
Cats at 8:30am
(Discharge is the following day at 7:30am as usual)
On the morning of discharge, pet owners will not be gathered in the lobby to watch the discharge instruction video. Discharge instructions will be given verbally, outside in the parking lot when the weather is not extreme. In the case of extreme weather, owners will be allowed into the lobby in groups. We suggest everyone bring an umbrella!
No more than 10 people will be allowed in the lobby at a time.
The lobby floor is marked to assist with physical distancing.
We ask as many people as possible to plan to pay their invoices with a credit card. Each pet owner will be asked their method of payment at the time of intake. If a credit/debit card can be used, we will call the owner during the surgery day to collect payment over the phone.
Anyone entering the building will be required to wear a face mask in order to protect our team and others.
Please contact us if you have questions or concerns.
We are happy to continue toward our much needed mission.🐾
Welcome to Margaret B. Mitchell Spay/Neuter Clinic
The mission of our clinic is to provide targeted, high-volume, reduced-cost spay and neuter services in an effort to reduce the dog and cat over-population problem in the Virginia counties of Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington and Wise; the Cities of Bristol and Norton; and the City of Bristol and County of Sullivan in Tennessee. While the clinic's focus is on serving these counties, animals will be accepted from other counties as availability permits.
Our vision is to end the need to euthanize healthy, adoptable dogs and cats by reducing the number of dogs and cats that enter the region's shelters.
