Low-Cost Vaccination and Microchip Clinic

Vaccination ClinicsVaccination Clinic

Due to COVID restrictions, we have begun offering contactless vaccination clinics by appointment only. Since we are limited in the number of individuals we are able to serve during these clinics, announcements and the link to sign up are posted on our Facebook page on the Saturday before the Wednesday clinic. For more information, please call our Customer Care team at 720.523.PETS (7387).  

Scheduled upcoming contactless vaccination clinics are below. Please remember to register for these clinics using the sign-up link that is posted on Facebook the Saturday before the clinic.  

  • Wednesday, August 5
  • Wednesday, August 19

Please be aware that this is a contactless clinic. Therefore, patrons will remain in their vehicles and must wear a face mask when interacting with our staff and volunteers. Due to the warm summer weather, it is advised that you keep the air conditioner running in your vehicle for the safety of you and your pet while you wait.

What to Expect:

  • An ill pet can sicken other animals. Please care for your sick pets at home. We’re happy to provide vaccinations when they’re healthy and feeling better.

  • Please keep your pets safe and ensure your dog is leashed and/or cat is in a carrier.

  • A current vaccination record for your pet(s) isn’t required, but is helpful to ensuring they receive the correct vaccinations. Please bring your most current records – especially for puppies and kittens.

  • Vaccinations take a few days to a few weeks to become effective. Keeping pets from interacting with other animals will help safeguard them in the meantime.

Vaccinations Offered:

We offer the following vaccinations (prices effective Feb. 1, 2020):


  • Rabies (one year vaccination) - $15
  • Distemper/Panleukopenia (FVRCP) $15


  • Rabies (one year vaccination) - $15

Microchipping your pet is one of the simplest ways to bring your pet home to you. If your pet is to become lost and found by someone else, your city’s Animal Control Department, local shelter, or veterinary clinic can scan the chip to help find you, their owner. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice and contains your contact information, which should be updated anytime you and your pet move to a new home or location. 

  • Microchip - $25
