Local Veterinarians Donate To Help Pets Of The Qualified Low Income In Our Area


     We are part of a group of veterinary hospitals that donate their time and money back into the St. Vrain Valley area.  Last year $121,853 was donated to help the qualified client of Social Services with low cost vaccinations and pet sterilization; no other group provides free pet sterilizations.  This group also donates their time to inspect and treat the animals adopted from the local humane societies, unknown animals for city and county animal control agencies, wildlife and other rescue groups.  The veterinary hospitals and clinics participating in the Social Service program for no cost spays and neuters are A Pet’s Place Animal Hospital, Action Housecall, Animal Emergency Center, Animal Health at Home, Animal Hospital, Animal Medical Clinic, Aspen Meadow, Cambridge Animal Hospital, Carbon Valley, Chaparral Animal Health, Coal Ridge, Community Pet Hospital (Pawz 2), Culver Animal Hospital, Erie Animal Hospital, Lyons, Nelson Road, Niwot, Olde Towne Animal, Tender Loving Care and Valley Veterinary Hospital.

     In addition our own clinic provides reduced sick animal exam fees and reduced emergency fees for those patients that we have seen in the last two years.  In 2012 the Nelson Road Veterinary Clinic provided an additional total amount of $103,800 in fees reduced under our Health Maintenance Service program.  Until one goes to an emergency referral facility or looks at marketing clinics that do not have multiple procedure and lab reductions, it is difficult to understand the HMS program.  We do not believe our currently active clients should pay for the bad debts for non-active client emergencies and sick patients, compared to the human and other veterinary hospitals.
