Community Programs

​Pets Forever is a Colorado State University sponsored non-profit program designed to help low-income elderly and disabled Larimer County residents maintain ownership of their pets for as long as possible, and to improve the health and well-being of these pets and owners by providing needed help and resources.

​The Veterinary Teaching Hospital's Volunteer program provides the hospital with needed volunteer help and gives undergraduate students and others in the community a chance to learn about the hospital's resources.

​The CSU Pet Hospice Program is not a specific place, but a philosophy. It functions on the principle that death is a part of life. Terminal illnesses and the dying process can be experienced with dignity, as an animal rests at home with its loving family.

​Surrounded by flower gardens and quiet alcoves, the VTH Tribute Garden is a part of the healing atmosphere at the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital that celebrates the human-animal bond. Bricks & benches inscribed with personal words of tribute create a permanent legacy that honors the relationships shared with companion animals or special people.

​The Annual Fast and the Furriest 5k run/walk benefits animals in need of emergency or life-saving treatments. The run/walk is sponsored by students in the Professional Veterinary Medical students at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Run or walk the race with your favorite well-behaved pets, including goats, iguanas, cats, bunnies, ducks, and dogs!

​The VTH Open House is a yearly event, which is coordinated and run by the professional veterinary medical students. Our open house events include lectures, demonstrations, tours through the hospital and over 15 displays. All of the open house events are free and open to the public!

​We offer comprehensive Continuing Education courses for veterinarians to assist with professional development.
