Maine Greyhound Placement Service has a fully serviceable veterinary clinic on-site to meet the needs of the hounds in our shelter that await adoption. With this state-of-the-art clinic we are able to provide spay/neutering services, dental work, vaccinations, microchipping, heartworm/tick testing, blood, urine, and stool analysis, and so much more. For those greyhounds that are coming in to our shelter, having the clinic at the ready tends to make their stay with us a shorter one and less stressful as we are able to address their medical needs quickly and efficiently without the dogs ever having to leave the MGPS campus. It is a pleasant 1 to 2 minute walk from the actual shelter to The East Coast Shelter Clinic building.


Dog breeds other then greyhounds? Yes, we see them, too!

The East Coast Shelter Clinic provides high quality yet affordable spay/neuter and dentistry services not only to the greyhounds in our care but to many other breed specific rescues as well. Despite our name, The Greyhound Clinic does not discriminate and we are more then happy to be able to help all of our canine friends on their way to eventual adoption.

How about cats?

Of course! In fact, it would probably not be an exaggeration to say that we see just as many cats here at The East Coast Shelter Clinic as we do greyhounds. The reason being is that we have networked with several of Maine's largest humane societies and provide most, if not all of their spay/neuter and dentistry services for the dogs AND cats in their shelters. We work closely with a number of cat shelters including one that works strictly with feral cats. Our outreach is continually expanding.

Clinic Staff

We also have 3 veterinary technicians on staff that combined have nearly 50 years of technical expertise. A skilled receptionist rounds out the crew and helps to keep things organized and running smoothly. They are a friendly , caring, and experienced group of folks who are truly dedicated in their desire to provide exceptional veterinary care to all animals in need.

Clinic Features

Technologically speaking, our clinic is very handsomely outfitted. We have 3 anesthetic machines, multiple pulse oximetry units, and an anesthetic/cardiac monitor that would rival most of those found in the human medical field. We have a large laboratory that gives us the ability to conduct, among other things, complete blood cell counts, bio-chemical profiles, and blood coagulation panels. The clinic itself is new, fresh, and spacious. In addition to our lab, it includes a surgical suite, a dental suite, an exam room, a recovery area, a waiting room, and more. We are so proud of our clinic and invite you to come in and take a tour.
