Pets in Need
RI’s Premier, Non-Profit Vet Clinic
Dear Valued Clients,
One of our PIN Clinic staff members tested positive for COVID-19. All current staff members are being tested. We are going to be closed through at least Monday, December 21, 2020, but possibly longer. We will reevaluate our hours and opening of the PIN Clinic after we have the results of the tests for all employees.
We take this very seriously and want to protect the safety of our employees, family, clients, and our community. Please note there will be no one available to answer our phones. If your pet is having an emergency, please contact your local veterinary emergency hospital. We apologize for any inconvenience. We truly appreciate and thank you for all your support.

At this time we are only able to provide care to existing PIN Clinic clients with urgent medical needs. We hope to start providing care to new clients again very soon. Please note that PIN is not providing spay/neuter surgeries at this time, please contact our Spay & Neuter Clinic for spay/neuter inquires.
We have been receiving hundreds of calls for appointments so please know it may take a number of weeks for your pet to receive an appointment.
In order to be seen at PIN Clinic:
1. You must have private transportation since you will be asked to wait in your car. Please limit the number of people coming to PIN Clinic as much as possible. We kindly ask that only one or two people bring the pet.
2. We ask that you please have a cell phone. Clients will not be allowed in the building and all communication will take place over the phone.
3. You must wear a mask when we approach your car to take your animal.
4. If you have had a fever in the last 72 hours or if you have been around someone that has been sick or tested positive for Covid-19, we kindly ask that you not call to schedule an appointment at this time.
