It's time! We are finally returning!
After a two-year closure due to COVID restrictions, we will be returning to our regular monthly clinics! Our clinics will be at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church on the first Thursday of every month from 9-12, registration starting at 8 am. .
We will be providing veterinary services for those experiencing homelessness and for those who are considered indigent and who income-qualify (please bring proof of need or government assistance, if available). The list of qualifications is below.
We do not charge for our services, but ask that each pet owner pay what they are able---we are strictly a volunteer organization that relies only on donations, so this will help us continue to provide services to those in need on a regular basis. However, no one will be turned away due to inability to pay.
*9 am - 12 noon (registration starts at 8 am)
*We will see the first 50 clients in line---we may have time for more, but there is no guarantee.
*St. Barnabas Episcopal Church
*1280 Vine St.
*Denver, CO 80204
Two blocks down from Colfax on Vine St.
There is street parking only and watch for street sweeping signs!
We are excited to see you again!

Colorado Pet Pantry:
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.
If your pet needs assistance at times other than the first Thursday of the month, visit our Resource page for local low-cost veterinary clinics and hospitals that can provide these additional services.

We do not provide services to breeding dogs and cats. We can provide free spay/neuter vouchers for those who need it and qualify (see below). You will be asked to provide proof of need once per year.
