The Wellness Clinic
Welcome to the Wellness Clinic
As an expansion of the Humane League of Lancaster’s pet-retention services, it is our goal to provide high-quality health care for income-qualified pet owners. We hope to help pets stay with their families and enjoy a greater quality of life. Through the Wellness Clinic, the Humane League of Lancaster hopes to ensure that families of all means have access to treatment options they can afford for their canine and feline companions.
Our Wellness Clinic will provide basic vaccinations and thorough physical examinations for each pet at prices that are reflective of lower income status. We also offer de-worming, micro-chipping, urine and fecal analysis, nail trimming, blood work, and ear and skin management. A wide variety of prescription food, flea and tick treatment, and heartworm preventative will be available at competitive prices. All dogs will receive a current license if applicable. This is a great way to bring your pet up to date on vaccinations and receive a physical exam which will screen for potential underlying medical issues.
All cats must be safely secured in carriers and dogs must be on a leash. We are also offering services for rabbits and guinea pigs, too!
Hours of Operation: The Wellness Clinic will be open on Tuesdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Care is for Income-Qualified Pet Owners: If you currently receive income/public assistance, please bring along proof of current address and income/public assistance verification (SSD, SSI, or paycheck stub). If you are not receiving income/public assistance you may still qualify! To find out who qualifies, please view or print our eligibility guidelines. (pdf)
Clients: Clients will be seen on a first come first serve basis, so no appointment is necessary.
Services: We will offer basic vaccinations and wellness exams at lower cost prices.

Meet the Wellness Team
Dr. Victoria Boyd Kyle, DVM, MS:
She recently joined the Humane League veterinarian staff as a full time employee. Dr. Boyd Kyle, is a Lancaster County native, who has lived and practiced veterinarian medicine in other parts of the country for 20 years. In addition, she has a broad background, which includes exotic/zoo animals and of course domestic animals (cats and dogs). When she agreed to come back to the Lancaster area and work at the Humane League, we could not have been more pleased.
Dr. Boyd Kyle, attended Penn State University for her undergraduate degree. She then entered and graduated from the Veterinarian School at the University of Tennessee. An interesting fact about Dr. Boyd Kyle, that in addition to her DVM, she earned her MS degree, because after veterinarian school she participated in a residency in comparative medicine.
She has recently participated in educational programs with the Humane Alliance for High Volume Spay and Neuter. Humane Alliance is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that focuses on high-volume, high-quality, low-cost companion animal sterilization. The information that she has learned through the Humane Alliance is invaluable to the Humane League of Lancaster, because Dr. Boyd Kyle participates in our low-cost spay and neuter clinics, our Trap Neuter Return program for feral cats, and she will be involved in the creation and running of our Wellness Clinic.
Did you know that in addition to helping pets remain in their homes, the Wellness Clinic is also helping stray animals find new forever families?
When you first meet “Squeekie” you will notice his bright yellow eyes and his shiny, luxurious fur coat! This handsome guy now enjoys naps in the sun, spending time with his canine and feline siblings, and receiving love and attention from his human care givers!
Unfortunately, life was not always so happy for Squeekie. He was found as a stray by John and Gail Sterback. They took Squeekie in, showered him with love and affection, and began to care for him. John and Gail realized right away that he was a very special cat and they really wanted to provide Squeekie with a forever home. He fit right in with their other cat and two dogs, just one of the gang! However, John and Gail, who are retired, were concerned about the financial responsibility of owning another pet, and because Squeekie was found as a stray he was going to need a lot of medical attention, vaccines, check ups, flea treatment and more!
Thankfully, they were able to bring Squeekie to the Wellness Clinic, he was seen by Dr. Boyd Kyle, and received the medical treatment that he needed. The best part, Squeekie is no longer a stray. John and Gail have decided to give Squeekie a forever family!
