About Mermaid SANDS

SANDS stands for Spay and Neuter, Dental Services. We also offer vaccinations, flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and basic wellness diagnostics.

Our Mission

Mermaid SANDS was conceived with the express purpose of relieving the strains on these new pet owners, full service veterinarians and animal shelters by creating a streamlined process for providing wellness and preventive medicine. The veterinary shortage and pet influx has impacted our community locally by resulting in reduced services available to the public from perennial non-profit organizations.
