We offer a variety of stuffed animal repair services. We are located in Austin, TX, but we accept injured stuffies from all over the world! See below for information and to make an appointment!
Medical Services for Stuffies
Step One: Telemedicine Appointment
Before we can do any repairs on injured stuffed animals or perform any elective procedures on consenting stuffies, we need to evaluate their needs. A quick telemedicine appointment will allow us to diagnose the situation and prepare a plan of action (what materials need to be obtained, how much time such an injury will require to complete, when we will be able to fit in a surgery or procedure, etc).
The cost of the Telemedicine Consultation ($5) will be applied toward any procedure we perform.
We will meet with you and your stuffy over Zoom to discuss your SA’s medical needs (emergency surgeries, elective/cosmetic surgeries, restuffing, missing appendages, etc). We will formuate a plan of action and will send you an estimate (time/cost/scheduling) within 24 hours after the appointment.
Cost of this consultation will go toward any medical services rendered.
Note: Repairs generally cost $25/hr, and typical surgeries can last anywhere from one to four or even eight hours! We will get a better idea of your SAs needs during our call, so you can make an informed decision regarding you stuffed animal’s care.
After booking your appointment, you will receive an email with a Zoom link. Just click the link when it’s time for your schedule appointment!
Please have your injured stuffed animal available for us to view over Zoom.
Step Two: Medical Procedure Appointment
After your Telemedicine Consultation, you will receive our time/cost estimate, a summary of our medical notes, and a link to where you can schedule the procedure, if you choose to, and pay a deposit.
Step Three: Pickup or Return Travel
We will discuss timing and transportation during our Telemedicine Consultation and will follow up with details in our post-consultation email.
Outpatient procedures are available for Austin residents for some SA ailments. However, many procedures require overnight stays at The SARF Headquarters, even for Austin residents.
Any remaining payment is due when you pick up your patient.
