Alachua County Humane Society offers many services to help pets and people in our community. Many of these services, such as our Dog Food Bank Program and Virtual Rehoming are completely free to the public and rely on the continued contributions from our generous donors to continue. 

Whether you are looking for grooming services, pet microchips, or information on what to do if you’ve lost or found a stray animal, Alachua County Humane Society strives to offer valuable resources to help you. 

Alachua County Humane Society offers low cost bathing and nail trims for dogs in our community! Now you can pamper your pet and provide a contribution to serving our life saving mission. Appointments are necessary, please call us at 352.373.5855 for more information. 

Just a bath: If Fido is dirty and you don’t have time to scrub him clean, schedule an appointment for a bath at ACHS! Our experienced technicians will make sure your pet is comfortable while giving them a shampoo, ear cleaning and time under a dryer. Pets can be dropped off in the morning or at lunch time and we’ll call you when he or she is ready to show off their nice, clean coat. At this time we do not offer coat clipping for long-haired dogs. Bathing appointments are $15.

Just a nail trim: Nail trims are important to keep your dogs healthy, and comfortable but some dogs are sensitive about anyone handling their feet. Our trained technicians will keep your dogs relaxed and calm while trimming their nails and offer many rewarding treats! Nail trim appointments are $15.

The complete package: If your dog is in need of head to toe pampering, schedule the complete package! As with our bathing appointments, you can drop your dog off and we’ll make sure they get a massaging scrub, ear cleaning and full mani/pedi by our trained technicians. Bath/Nail trim appointments are $25.

*We request you bring proof of your pet’s most recent, valid Rabies vaccination certificate. Appointments are necessary with limited availability. 

The Alachua County Humane Society now hosts low-cost, walk-in vaccine and wellness clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays open to the public.

The clinic will feature veterinary care services including routine vaccines, heartworm and feline combination tests, preventative medication such as flea control and deworming, and microchipping.

The clinic will be open from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursdays at 4205 NW 6th St. Most vaccines will range from $15-20 in price. No appointment is necessary! We ask that you bring your pet’s vaccination history if available.

More about Microchipping: It only takes a split second for your dog or cat to slip away. A microchip offers the security of a permanent, up to date identification tag for your pet. Microchips have helped reunite millions of animals with their owners quickly, and safely without the worry if their collar and tags have fallen off. 

Pet Food for Families in Need

At Alachua County Humane Society, we understand that circumstances change and your ability to provide for yourself and your pets can be difficult at times. Financial hardships should not come between the bond you share with your pet. 

Alachua County Humane Society aims to provide dog and cat food when available to families who demonstrate a financial need. Our resources are limited. Please call us at 352.373.5855 for more information and availability.
