DENVER – More than 1,000 9PetCheck appointments were filled Monday evening. There are still openings in the following locations:

  • Colorado Springs
  • Delores
  • Durango
  • Fort Collins
  • Pueblo
  • Steamboat Springs

If you live in any of these communities and want a 9Pet Check appointment call 303-800-1622.

Veterinarians across Colorado will offer free wellness exams and rabies vaccinations on April 5 and 6 as part of the 9PetCheck.

This program is a partnership between 9NEWS, the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association, and nearly 80 veterinary clinics to help pet owners who are struggling financially get free health checks and rabies vaccinations for their beloved cats and dogs.

Colorado veterinarians know the importance of annual examinations for keeping pets healthy and preventing future health problems, and are willing to help those who are truly in need by donating their time to this event.

The free exams are for people living on a restricted or low income or those who are unemployed. If your animal is sick or injured, you should contact your local veterinarian as soon as possible.

9NEWS would like to thank our partners in the event:

Colorado Veterinary Medical Association: www.colovma.org

SimpleSignal donated Pet Check Line9 technical expertise and phones: www.SimpleSignal.com

Merial provided the rabies vaccine free of charge to participating veterinarians: www.Merial.com
