Mountain View Humane (MVH) is a 501(c) 3 that provides low cost, high quality spay/neuter services. Since MVH’s opening in 2010, we have spayed/neutered over 44,000 dogs and cats.
Spay/neuter is a simple solution to the complex problem of the euthanasia epidemic, which destroys 4 million animals each year and is a direct result of animals left unaltered in communities.
We strive to sterilize any dog or cat that needs it, regardless of the owner's ability to pay.
Mountain View Humane serves the New River Valley with a clinic on Main Street in Christiansburg and also has a clinic in Roanoke.
MVH provides FREE Hip to Snip transports from locations throughout SW Virginia and southern West Virginia. Mountain View transports once a month from Floyd, Giles, Wythe and Pulaski Counties in the New River Valley. This is a free service to the residents so they have access to MVH's services.
MVH's every day prices are typically 40%-70% less than full-service veterinary clinics in the area for similar services. Even with these low rates, 46% of our owned patients have some portion of their fees paid for through subsidy funding.
The clinics' services are targeted to serve pets from low-income households, pets being readied for adoption, and stray free-roaming animals. MVH's goal is to turn no one away due to the inability to pay. To achieve this, MVH raises funds to subsidize surgery costs for roughly half of our clients.
MVH partners with many animal welfare organizations in the NRV to provide surgical services at a reduced rate. In addition to animal welfare organizations, we are helping train the next generation of veterinarians through the Virginia-Maryland College for Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech. Fourth Year veterinary students do a rotation through MVH to learn spay/neuter techniques and get hands-on experience in a clinical setting.
