I dropped off my puppy yesterday to be spayed. They were prompt and thorough telling me everything about her procedure from the night before to the two week follow up. Very thankful for these confident pleasant people to help a nervous dog mom through her first puppy’s biggest step so far.  – Brandy M.

I had my 1.5 year old female rabbit spayed with this clinic recently and was so pleased with the whole experience. The clinic itself runs like a well oiled machine, all staff is knowledgeable and kind and loving of the animals. I was nervous to bring a rabbit in for a surgery but they did a wonderful job and left me with great instructions for aftercare. Highly recommended!  – Lindsey D.

This is a wonderful clinic & shelter. Thank you for all you do. – Stephanie S.

I have to say it was the best efficient trip to the vet I’ve ever taken. I just had my 7 month old chihuahua poodle mix neutered. It’s been one week and he has made incredible recovery ..like it never even happened! – Michelle L.

My cat needed her eye removed and they saved her life on more than one account. Affordable effective and amazing appreciation for animals.  I cannot thank them enough. – Cheryl L.

Hi there, 
I wanted to express how thankful I was and am for finding the Sterling Clinic and for the wonderful spay they performed on my puppy Tootsie. Before finding the clinic, I received two estimates from local vets ( I live in Metrowest). One estimate was $750 and the other was $950. I felt those prices were astronomically high and would be an entire pay check. My mom had recommended the clinic and at first I was a little skeptical that low cost equally low quality. That could not have been further from the truth and the reality of my experience. I did my homework and read every section of your website and felt comfortable bringing my puppy there. The surgery went amazing and I even had her checked by a local vet after two weeks and he applauded how neat and clean the incision sites were. For anyone who thinks ( like I originally did) that low cost means low quality, understand that is a giant myth and it is because of places like Sterling Clinic that many more loving families can afford to have an animal spayed/neutered. The surgery and services offered was truly a blessing and I would recommend this clinic to any family! Thank you again for performing the procedure and affording Tootsie a healthier, longer, life!  Please feel free to put my testimony on your website and reach out with any questions you have! -Wendy DeLuca


I did my research and wanted to find a trustworthy and affordable animal clinic to neuter my two puppies. Finally, I came across Sterling Animal Clinic, and although it is an hour away from my home, it was worth it. The place looks well maintained, people were friendly and inside looked sanitary and well maintained also. Coco and Twix were of course tired when they arrived home, but have been doing absolutely great! I’ve already recommended this place to a few people because I couldn’t have asked for better care and service for my two pups. Thanks everyone at the clinic!  Johanna B. Boston, MA

We chose Sterling Animal Shelter to neuter/spay our dog when we couldn’t find an option that was affordable for us in the Boston area. They offer low-cost services on certain weekdays, and take good care of their animals. We dropped off our dog in the early morning and picked her up 6-8 hours later. The surgery went well and she recovered quickly with no major issues. I would love to adopt a dog from this place someday when the time is right, because they really seem to love their animals. If memory serves me correct, they can provide information and little “kits” to take home with your new dog. The clinic and kennels are located down a woodsy, winding road and the sign is easy to miss if you drive too quickly. Once you get there, though, you’ll be on a gravel driveway and arrive at a building with kennels. Annette A.Brighton, MA

To everyone at the Sterling Shelter: Thank you so much for making my Truman’s  (the Dorkie) dental experience a healthy and positive experience.   His teeth look amazing!  I wanted to say I appreciate the care and service on Monday and the also for caring enough to call me and let me know the status of his treatment. He is doing well. Regards  Kate R.

Amazing!! We had our 9month kitty Bella spayed here and I can stay I am utterly amazed! Not only is it affordable, but the staff is friendly and caring. I loved the way they spoke to Bella. I have been to vets where the staff has no personality and they treat your animal like every other; in and out!!… The surgery went great and so did her recovery! She never looked uncomfortable at all! And now she is more affectionate…can’t say I mind that at all! Thank you for all your exceptional care! Pay it forward and volunteer. Jenny D.

Thank you so much for the excellent care you took of our cat Spiff today during his dental cleaning. It’s hard to leave my boy, but I know he’s in such good hands with you folks — especially Jennifer, who was fabulous today. Everyone was so communicative about his procedure all day, and truly took the time to explain everything. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this loving, and very affordable care. Ever since we adopted our two cats from you in 2012, the Sterling Shelter has had a very special place in our hearts. THANK YOU!! Monique D.

This is a wonderful clinic & shelter. Thank you for all you do.  Stephanie S.

I wanted to THANK YOU and the vet staff for the fabulous dental cleaning on Roo (Brewster). His teeth look great! I couldn’t believe how wonderful they looked and back to his crazy self the next day. Marion H.

I just wanted to say thank you for doing such a great job with our dog Max. He had his neutering on July 3rd. He went to the vet yesterday for check up and he looks great! It is wonderful that you offer low cost services. I love my vet, but the same surgery would have been over $500.00 and with three kids and a mortgage it really helped!  Danielle R.
