Denver Low-Cost Vet Care Options + Pet Food Pantry
MaxFund Wellness Center
The good hoomans at MaxFund offer low-cost, non-emergency veterinary care. And it’s a win-win, because the cost of your clinic visit helps offset the cost of MaxFund’s no-kill animal shelter. Operating primarily as a walk-in clinic, their services are in high demand. So after you put your name on the waitlist inside the lobby, you wait for your turn in the car. Make sure you pack snaccs and toys for doggo because she really prefers cars when they’re going somewhere.
Broadview Animal Clinic
Located in Southeast Denver, Broadview Animal Clinic has been providing Denver’s furry frens quality, low-cost care for 60+ years. Currently, services are curbside only, so text or call when you arrive. Pssst, they partner with Scratchpay to offer affordable payment plans for pet parents in need.
Downtown Animal Care Center
Downtown Animal Care Center offers low-cost, full-service medical, surgical, and dental care. They also provide affordable vaccinations, spays, and neuters. Due to COVID, they aren’t accepting walk-ins or holding open vaccination clinics, so call ‘em to schedule an appointment.
Planned Pethood International
Located in Wheat Ridge, Planned Pethood International offers some of the most affordable rates in the metro area for comprehensive, quality care, including surgical services. We also think it’s pretty fetch they offer low-cost spay and neuter clinics throughout the world, aiming to reduce pet overpopulation.
