  • Within one business day of submitting your pre-registration form, an ARLGP staff will call you to verify your appointment and the services your pets need.
  • This clinic will be a curbside service. An ARLGP team member will check-in with you upon arrival. When your pet is ready to be seen, a veterinary technician will retrieve your pet from your car, bring them into our clinic for their services, and return them to you. Due to COVID-19, pet parents will not be able to accompany their pets into our facility.
  • Be sure to come with a leash for your dog and/or a carrier for your cat. If you have concerns about your animal reaction, please let us know so we can best prepare. If your dog requires a muzzle to visit the vet, please bring it to your vaccine appointment too.


Microchipping is our #1 way to reunite lost pets with their owners. Microchipping is a quick and easy way to ensure your animal is properly identified in the event that he/she gets lost. The cost is $40 per pet and comes with a one-year registration.

PLEASE NOTE: During our COVID-19 closure, microchipping is currently only offered at time of adoption.
