Benefiting the animals & our community
Pet Resource Center
A Sign of Respect
The Dumb Friends League Pet Resource Center offers wellness and educational services to prevent suffering in pets whose caretakers would otherwise be unable to provide this care. Out of respect for our clients and out of concern of creating barriers when documentation is challenging, we serve our clients on an honor system. If you can otherwise afford to provide wellness care for your pet, please obtain that care from one of the excellent veterinarians in our community. Services offered by the Pet Resource Center are made possible by donations intended to create a safety net so no pet suffers.
Through our Pet Resource Center, we reach out in a spirit of compassion to pet owners in underserved areas by providing services to help keep pets healthy, happy, and in their homes. Pet owners in underserved areas can get vaccines and microchips for their pets at reduced fees, subsidized by Dumb Friends League donors. Owners can also receive information and training in pet care, pet hygiene, and behavior.
Vaccine Clinic Fees
Mobile vaccine clinics are offered in different parts of the Denver metro area in partnership with community host sites. For $20, cats and dogs can receive both the rabies and distemper vaccine. Microchips for cats and dogs and FeLV vaccines for cats are $25. We accept cash, check or credit cards for payment. Donations are greatly appreciated.
Adult cats and dogs can be seen annually for vaccination. Puppies and kittens must be 6 weeks old to receive the distemper shot and 4 months old for the rabies shot. No income qualification is required.
