UPCOMING 2020 CLINICS:
January 9th (the second Thursday)
JANUARY 2020 CLINIC:
Our JANUARY clinic will a little different due to the holiday---it will be on the SECOND Thursday, January 9th from 9 am-12 noon at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church (address below). Registration will start at 8:00 am.
Please know that will be working with a small veterinary volunteer team each month and each pet may not be able to see a veterinarian. So, if your pet only needs vaccines, heartworm testing or nail trimming only, a veterinary technician team will be happy to assist you with this, as your pet may not be able to see a vet this time. We may be limiting our veterinarian exams to sick patients only--to be triaged by our medical staff at the time of registration, so if you feel that your pet needs to be seen by a vet, we are happy to accommodate as many people as we can---there may be a long wait time, however, so bring a book! :)
If you need help before or after our clinic, please visit the Resource page on our website for a list of low cost veterinary clinics in the Denver and
surrounding areas, as we are unable to provide urgent or emergency services.

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.
