Veterinary Care

Keeping pets happy, healthy and at home with the people who love them is an important part of our work.

The AWS Community Veterinary Clinic, located right on AWS’ campus in Kennebunk, is a full-service veterinary clinic serving AWS residents and pets belonging to community members in our region. The AWS Clinic staff is a team of caring veterinary professionals including full-time veterinarians, part-time veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, administrative staff, and dedicated volunteers. We offer a wide array of services and procedures to provide high-quality care to feline and canine patients. With digital x-ray, dental suite, ultrasound, diagnostic lab, two surgery suites, and an in-clinic and online pharmacy, the Clinic serves nearly every need of our patients.

Wellness and Preventative Care

Good preventative care is an important part of your pet’s overall health. We recommend regular check-ups at least once a year. During your wellness appointment, our veterinary team will conduct a full physical exam, discuss vaccinations, testing and parasite control, and address any health concerns you may have. Make your appointment today.

Spay/Neuter Services

Spay and neuter surgeries are one of the most common procedures done by AWS Community Clinic veterinarians, both for resident dogs and cats and those owned by members of our community. Surgeries are scheduled in advanced and pets go home the same day. Additional spay/neuter services are provided the AWS/Cleo Fund to income-qualified pet owners throughout Maine. Learn more.

Pharmacy Services

The AWS Community Veterinary Clinic contains a pharmacy to provide prescription medications to our patients. We have an onsite pharmacy and we offer a convenient online pharmacy to provide prescription medication and food to our patients. Visit the pharmacy.


We believe an individual or family’s financial standing is not an accurate reflection of their capacity to love and care for pets. We strive to provide the care needed to keep a pet happy and at home, where it is loved. As a nonprofit, we strive to keep our pricing as low cost as possible.

For many of our services, we offer a two-tier pricing system. The discounted tier, known as the Companion program, is based on income qualifications. See if you qualify. We are able to offer the Companion program with support from our dedicated Companions for Life Fund,  funded by generous local businesses and individuals.


All procedures and exams must be scheduled in advance. No walk ins please. We offer public appointments Mondays – Friday from 9 am – 4 pm. For questions or scheduling, the Clinic can be reached from 9 am – Noon and 1 pm – 5 pm, Monday – Friday, at (207) 292-2424. Please note that the Clinic is closed weekends and on all major holidays.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high call volume, it may take a while for us to return calls to schedule non-emergency procedures or appointments (including spay/neuter surgery requests). We do receive each and every voicemail so we ask for your patience. We will respond as soon as we can.

If you have been to our Clinic before, please call us at (207) 292-2424 to schedule your pet’s appointment. Due to capacity issues and social distancing, unfortunately, we are currently limiting the number of clients we can take.

In order to qualify for an appointment, you need to meet one of the following criteria:
  • Recently adopted animal(s) from AWS
  • New pet for an established client* of the AWS Clinic
  • New puppy or kitten with no established regular veterinarian
  • Sick pet with no established regular veterinarian

Please note that we are booking 6-8 weeks out for non-emergency appointments (including spay/neuter surgeries).

We are temporarily suspending second opinion consultations (dental, ultrasound/radiograph, etc), and we have limited emergency care available for referrals from other veterinarian/emergency clinics.

*Definition of established client of the AWS Clinic: the patient has had one or more wellness exams with an AWS Community Clinic veterinarian. Spay/Neuter surgery is an elective service that does not qualify a pet as an established client.
