Notice about upcoming clinics
in regard to COVID-19 :
We are sad to announce that our clinics have been temporarily suspended
until further notice.
St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, our regular location, has closed its space to all outside organizations for an undetermined amount of time, so while we are looking for a new location to resume our free clinics, it is also important for us to find ways to help you and your pets during this difficult time.
If you are experiencing financial hardship and your pet needs vaccines and heartworm testing/medication, please contact Spay Today in Lakewood at 303-984-7729 and Peace, Love & Paws will help pay for these services until we resume our regular clinics. In order to obtain financial assistance for this, please mention Peace, Love & Paws when you call.
Additionally, if you have an immediate or urgent medical need for your pet and are experiencing a financial crisis and cannot afford care, please see our list of Resources of low-cost veterinary clinics or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you obtain medical care for your pet during our closure. Any help financially with these services must be approved by our Medical Director. And if your pet is experiencing an emergency, please refer to our list of referral clinics or other 24 hour facilities right away.
Please check back for updates in the next few weeks for more information regarding our future clinics. Your pet's health is very important to us, so please know that we are working to find ways to help our clients and their pets as this Coronavirus crisis continues to affect each of us.

Every year we participate in Project Homeless Connect, a large event helping Denver's homeless with obtaining all kinds of services they need such as housing, clothing, medical care, dental care, IDs, legal help, resumes and jobs, etc.---and we provide free veterinary care and pet supplies for them! Keep an eye out each fall to volunteer for this wonderful event---it is very meaningful for us and for our special clients!
We do not charge for any of our services, although we do accept donations as you are able.
We provide all of the services listed above, however, we are currently unable to provide heartworm testing, heartworm medication, microchipping, labwork, surgeries or dental cleanings. Additionally, we are unable to provide veterinary care outside of our regularly scheduled free clinics.
