Peace, Love & Paws is a Colorado non-profit organization that provides low-cost and no-cost veterinary services to Denver and the surrounding communities.
Our organization focuses on serving the veterinary needs of the homeless, the indigent and the economically disadvantaged community in the Denver metro area. At the present time, we are providing free pet health clinics for the entire Denver homeless community at Father Woody's Haven of Hope, a Denver day shelter. Additionally, we hope to open a facility in the next year that will serve the needs of anyone in a place of financial difficulty. We want to offer the same level of care to those who are economically disadvantaged as those who have financial means. OUR CURRENT MISSION WITH THE HOMELESS: Often, people have said that you shouldn't have a pet if you can't afford one. But we believe differently, as we know how important pets can be to our physical, emotional and mental health. In addition to many others who are financially disadvantaged, there is a large Denver homeless population who have pets....and they love their fur-children as much as anyone else! For many in the homeless community, their pets are their only companions....they provide the unconditional love they often don't receive in the community as a whole, so many times, their moms and dads will forego their own needs in order to care for their pets' needs. Their fur-children are well-loved and deserve proper veterinary care, as they have no control over their circumstances and to whom they belong. Because their parents are often not able to afford such things as physical exams, vaccines, food, bedding, supplies, etc., we provide basic wellness care, vaccines, health exams, basic grooming such as nail trims, sanitary clips and ear cleanings, and address minor health concerns. OUR FUTURE MISSION: We hope to open a full-service facility in the next year that will provide more services including diagnostics such as bloodwork and x-rays, hospitalization and surgeries for pets of those who are economically disadvantaged----this will include ANYONE in a place of financial difficulty. We hope to be able to help anyone who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay.
