Behavior Helpline

Call the free Behavior & Training Helpline at 626.792.7151 ext. 155 to discuss your pet’s behavior issues with our trained animal behavior experts. You can also check out our upcoming training workshops and classes to see if they might be a good fit for you and your pet.

Wellness Clinic


Our low-cost spay/neuter services help fight pet overpopulation and prevent you from incurring the future cost of a litter of animals. If you are a resident of our animal control service areas and are unable to afford the fees, please call the Helping Paws team for a Helping Paws application at 626.792.7151 ext. 281.


We offer first-come, first-serve walk-in clinics every Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We also offer regular mobile wellness clinics across the area. If you are unable to afford the fees please call the Helping Paws team for an application for the Helping Paws Program at 626.792.7151 ext. 281.


Microchips keep people and pets together! A microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the animal’s skin between the shoulder blades. Each chip has a unique number that is registered with a national database along with the pet owner’s contact information. The microchip can be read by scanners that are currently used by most animal organizations and veterinary clinics. Microchip services are available at our on-site walk-in clinic every Sunday and during mobile wellness clinics.

Veterinary & Wellness Assistance

No pet owner wants their furry friend to suffer because the cost of medical care is out of reach. While the Pasadena Humane Society does not provide medical care beyond vaccines and spay/neuter, please click here for a list of free and low-cost clinics and organizations that may provide financial assistance for veterinary care.
