  • 1. They care about the Whole animal

    by: alleyzipzero

    Staff is great! My first visit was with my dog who came from a bad home and was afraid of people. The Vet tech- sat with me and explained ways I could help him get over his fear, and all of his suggestions worked wonderfully. It was a very personable visit, they care not only about the health of a pet but also their emotional well being. I take all 3 of my dogs there now.

    Pros

    Low cost friendly veterinarian office

    Cons

    None that I've found

  • 3. Great Medical Care at Low Cost

    by: Maa16Lisa14

    I took my rescue puppy to MaxFund Wellness Center to be spayed at 6 months old. My own vet's office had estimated that it would cost around $200 to $250, and more if I wanted the smallest incision.\r\n\r\nSo I called MaxFund and found out they do spays and neuters for $50. They did a great job on my lab mix pup, Cynthia. The incision was small and she healed quickly and easily. \r\n\r\nI was so pleased that when I picked her up after the spay, I paid for my dog, and added another $50 for someone else who couldn't afford a spay or neuter to get one free. MaxFund sent me a card a few days later to tell me: a young man came in a few days later with a young dog he had rescued to get meds, but he couldn't afford the neuter. He was given it free and was very grateful and surprised and pleased.\r\n\r\nThe doctors, techs, and volunteers there are wonderful! I would go back there anytime my dogs had a serious problem.

    Pros

    Very reasonable costs compared to suburban vets

    Cons

    none

  • 5. A wellness center with heart!

    by: redrose222

    The clinic offers an inexpensive way to get your animal "fixed." The people are very motivated, and the animals come first.

    Pros

    Located next door to the Maxfund

    Cons

    small

  • 6. Best value with loving, caring staff

    by: DroolSpeak

    If your'e looking for a Ritz Carlton vet, you won't find it here. Maxfund uses their funds to improve the health of the pets in their care -- not for fancy frills like leather seats and fancy fish tanks in the lobby.\r\n\r\nThe people are kind and knowledgable who work there. We are fortunate to have their services in our Denver Metro area.

    Pros

    affordable vet care

    Cons

    not fancy

  • 7. No more excuses

    by: rkohler

    Basic care, vaccinations and spay/neuter services offered at a central location, for a reasonable cost. NO MORE EXCUSES PEOPLE!

    Pros

    Everyone can afford to spay/neuter their pet!

    Cons

    None!

  • 8. Maxfund Wellness Clinic

    by: marlava

    This clinic was so wonderful when I brought in my dog. I didn't know that they only see patients in the afternooon during the walk-in hours. In the mornings they do surgeries. Nevertheless, when I showed up in the a.m. for them to "express" my dogs anal glands, they still tended to her!!\r\n

    Pros

    very helpful, friendly

    Cons

    walk-in only

  • 9. Great organization

    by: lmpickford

    Max Fund Wellness Center is a very good organization that has a qualified staff. They deal with the spay and neutering of the Max Fund shelter plus helping out other animals at a low cost.

    Pros

    Very clean and qualified staff

    Cons

    Too bad there aren't more wellness centers like this one

  • 10. Excellent vets

    by: Tatesq

    Although we have a different regular vet, the Maxfund Wellness Center was invaluable when Minky suffered a dislocated hip. Our then-regular vet was no help. We rushed over to Maxfund, and they were just great. Thank you, Wellness Center!!

    Pros

    Low cost, high quality

    Cons

    None

  • 11. visiting the maxfund wellness clinic

    by: pegadamson54

    maxfund wellness center has treated me and my dog, amber grace very well. they got her on thyroid meds. to help with her weight. in addition, they heve built the rehab range for dogs in maxfund and especially for our 'champs' class for behavior training. i love the wellness center.

    Pros

    inexpensive

    Cons

    sometimes crowded

  • 12. So-so clinic

    by: dolce

    If you need something routine, Maxfund Wellness Clinic is a great place to go. The staff isn't always friendly, but they take good care of the animals and are very affordable. However, if you need something major done, or need some comforting and friendliness, this may not be the place to take them. It's not a horrible place, but I've gotten poor service there and heard things that aren't so great.

    Pros

    Affordable

    Cons

    unfriendly staff

  • 13. They care

    by: reillysmom

    The Maxfund Wellness Center has a very caring, hard working, and knowlegable staff. It is well-managed, kept very clean, and truly cares about the animals that come through the door. In addition to serving as a community resource, it also helps Maxfund animals. They never forget about their "clients."

    Pros

    Low cost, caring and knowledgable staff

    Cons

    Limited hours, not specialists

  • 14. Excellent shelter

    by: TaraColorado

    This is the best shelter in the Denver Metro area, most here are kill shelters. Some of their animals have not had a real home in months, but they never give up. They will often seek out rescue groups to take some of the animals and adopt them out.

    Pros

    No kill shelter

    Cons

    can't think of one

  • 15. Wonderful Services Amazing prices!

    by: mmspurge

    I've taken my boys here on several different occasions. First was for their rabies shots as I wasn't sure if they ever received it. It was very cheap but the waiting room was very crowded. I also took my boys here to be neutered and although they give you no drugs for them they did a wonderful job with the surgery. Other places wanted to charge over 300 dollars per dog and they did it for around 50. Very good place!

    Pros

    Everything was priced reasonably, and service was great!

    Cons

    Long waits

  • 16. Care for all pets possible

    by: zookie

    This low-cost clinic provides much needed service for people who love their animals but can't afford a traditional vet office's sometimes overwhelming fees. Vaccines, spays and neuters are especially important services offered at low prices. They also provide discounted treatments for animals who may otherwise be euthanized due to lack of funding.

    Pros

    affordable

    Cons

    out-dated building

  • 17. Great pet care

    by: Bernergirl

    I would definitely take my pets to the Maxfund Wellness Center. There are two rooms there full of beautiful cats who are looking for homes.

    Pros

    excellent value

    Cons

    none

  • 18. MaxFund Clinic is Great!

    by: MingsMom

    MaxFund Wellness Clinic is excellent! They offer low cost vaccinations, spaying and neutering, and affordable orthopedic surgeries! You may have to wait a bit since it's a walk-in clinic, but it it worth it! Dr. Amy is the best!

    Pros

    Low Cost, High Quality!

    Cons

    May have to wait a bit!

  • 19. Great value for the money

    by: Jett

    I am very greatful the clinic exists and have had to use their services many times with the limited budget I have.\r\nI found the Dr's to be very knowledgable. I also found the staff to be incredibly caring. My pouch appearantly spent a great deal of time with these staff members before he picked me to go home with. Every time I have brought my dog in for anything, somebody has remembered him and showered him with great love and affection. On several occassions, I was disappointed with the technical care my dog has received. I sometimes get the feeling that even tho the techs obviously love pets, that there is a timidity when preforming procedures that has caused unnecessary discomfort (giving shots, I.V.'s, wound care, etc.). I still think they are great and will go back.

    Pros

    great value, staff cares

    Cons

    technical skills

  • 20. Low Cost Clinic

  • 21. MaxFund Wellness is a greata resource

    by: rockymountainesra

    What a wonderful service for the Denver metro area. The clinic is located in a low income neighborhood and makes it possible for seniors and low income families to obtain the necessary care for their pets.

    Pros

    Low cost, very competent care - staff clearly loves the animals

    Cons

    need to schedule ahead for routine care, procedures

  • 22. Great Low Cost vet services!

    by: pechedog

    This is a great low cost vet clinic in a neighborhood that needs it! It is a clean facility. You can also visit with some of our great Maxfund kitties while your waiting!

    Pros

    Low cost vaccinations, spay & Neuter and surgeries including Ortho.

    Cons

    No set appointments, walk in for basic services

  • 23. Great care at reasonable prices

    by: maryfurman1

    We adopted Emma from Maxfund in March of 2006 and she needed both of her knees repaired. We did the surgery at Maxfund Wellness Center as part of our agreement with the Maxfund Animal Shelter. Emma got superb care from the staff and Dr Dixon, the Surgeon, was very nice and caring. Emma runs like a dog with new knees. The Wellness Center offers many services for less than other clinics making it easier for lower income families to afford medical care for their pets, but their quality of care is great.

    Pros

    Low cost

    Cons

    none
