PetAidAnimal Hospital also provides spay and neuter surgeries to the general community in an effort to help control pet overpopulation, as well as providing discounted spay/neuter surgeries to homeless animals in the care of shelters and rescue agencies.
PetAid Animal Hospital is the largest not-for-profit animal hospital in Colorado and is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association at its highest level, symbolizing our commitment to the highest standards of patient care.
Why is this program important?
While fees for veterinary services at PetAid Animal Hospital are already significantly subsidized, care is often still unaffordable for many clients. Animal owners are often deterred from having their pets treated because they see veterinary care as an unnecessary or unaffordable expense, especially when faced with the inability to meet their most basic financial needs. Because of this, animal owners often resort to relinquishing their animals or letting their animal become stray without current vaccinations or having been spayed or neutered, further contributing to diseased and overpopulation.
