About us

Pets are an important part of our lives and families, but maintaining your pet’s health can be difficult when resources are limited.

Kindest Cut, LLC is a veterinary practice offering low cost spay and neuter surgeries, wellness services, and dental care to cats, dogs and rabbits belonging to families with limited means, and to nonprofit rescues and shelters.

Sterilization surgeries are available via a fully equipped mobile surgical unit, serving over 25 communities in Minnesota, and at the Melrose Animal Clinic at Animal Humane Society’s location in Golden Valley, Minnesota. Melrose Animal Clinic also offers a variety of wellness and dental services.

Kindest Cut was founded in May of 2011 by licensed veterinarian Dr. Meghann Kruck, with the help of Animal Humane Society donors. Since then, we have provided over 24,000 high quality surgeries.

Kindest Cut believes that if more animals were sterilized, there would be far less animal homelessness. Every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the United States. More than 60% of them are unwanted and will be abandoned, oftentimes brought to a shelter or rescue organization. Kindest Cut and Animal Humane Society believe animals in our community deserve better.

 Kindest Cut is a proud member of the Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare (MNPaw)

“I have always had a love for animals and a strong interest in the human-animal bond. I have known since the age of four that I wanted to be a veterinarian and had a great deal of support and encouragement from my pet loving family. We always had at least a dog and a cat when I was growing up, but we even had a parakeet, gerbils, snakes and a lizard.” Dr. Kruck
