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 and close at 4:00 pm. Due to the high volume of patients, we will see as many patients as time allows between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm.
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.
Please Be Advised: Due to the high volume of clients, you may need to wait approximately an 1.5 hr to 2 hr, before being seen by a veterinarian.
Services: We will offer basic vaccinations and wellness exams at lower cost prices.
Prices: Please view the pricing guide for the basic services that the Wellness Clinic provides: Humane League Pricing Guide (pdf) * Please note prices and services are subject to change. This list is only a general guideline.

Welcome Dr. Misha Neumann
Dr. Misha Neumann
Misha Neumann, DVM graduated from University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She has a strong interest in Integrative Medicine and Canine Rehabilitation which complements her love of caring for geriatric patients. In addition to having a soft spot in her heart for our elderly patients, she also has a passion for shelter medicine. She spent 8 years of her childhood volunteering at the Hillside SPCA and has decided to return to the world of shelter medicine.
She likes to spend her free time refurbishing furniture, being with nature, belly dancing, playing the flute, swimming and learning about her Czech heritage. She is the first in her family to be born in the United States. She shares her life with 2 cats, Junior and Wicca (“Chee-cha” in Czech), and Pepik (“Little Joe” translated from Czech), a 9 year old guinea pig. Her furry crew is pretty silly. Wicca will follow Dr. Misha back-n-forth from sink to bathtub just to get a chance to play with water while Junior gives her a playful whack in the face to get her up for his breakfast in the morning. Pepik loves to burrow and slumber under paper tents.
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 the veterinarian staff, 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!
