Serving Pets Since 2009

At SpayToday we believe in the human/animal bond and value of every pet’s life, honoring the unconditional love and happiness they bring to our lives. 

We are a 501c3, non-profit vet clinic in Lakewood, Colorado that offers low-cost and no-cost essential vet care services for pets in the Denver Metro and surrounding areas. Our goal is to connect with individuals and families who otherwise would not be able to obtain basic vet care for their pets and provide no-cost and low-cost basic vet care. 

We are not a full-service veterinary practice. We offer a limited range of services that include spay/neuter surgeries, vaccines, and microchips. 

Since 2009, SpayToday has performed more than 80,000 successful spay/neuter surgeries.  A pet’s access to basic veterinary care should not be based solely on the size of their family’s pocketbook. If you or someone you know is in need – we are here to help!  Connect with us and make an appointment today!

Our Mission

SpayToday is dedicated to eliminating animal homelessness, neglect, and potential abuse through spay/neuter services.

Our Vision

A world where all pets are wanted pets and have a home of their own with people who love them.

Our Objective

Connect with vulnerable populations in the Denver Metro and surrounding areas to offer and provide high-quality, affordable basic vet care. We are dedicated to keeping pets healthy and in their homes with their families.

Our History

SpayToday was founded in 2008 by Angelina Piccoli, DVM. Dr. Piccoli saw a lack of options for easily accessible, affordable spay and neuter services in Colorado and was determined to make a greater impact for pets in her community by opening SpayToday. Since January 2009 the clinic has performed more than 65,000 sterilization surgeries, preventing countless unplanned and unwanted litters from being born.


SpayToday has grown from three employees to twenty and continues to grow and expand the services we offer to meet the need in the community for affordable veterinary services.


In 2019 SpayToday moved into a renovated building in the Eiber neighborhood of Lakewood in order to expand services to include more preventative and wellness offerings for pet owners in need.

From Our Visitors

If we could give Spay Today ten stars, we would! From the time you schedule an appointment to the time you pick your pet up, you can rest assured your fur baby is in good hands. The staff is caring, knowledgeable, and efficient. You are supplied with information on what to expect on the day of surgery and how to handle things afterward. Kudos to the entire staff at Spay Today! Highly recommend.

It was such a blessing to find Spay2Day. My semi feral cat was treated like an important pet! I was able to afford to help him get immunized, neutered, tested & ear tipped. It changed his life & ours! He has calmed down so much & can even walk through doorways, now! He is quickly becoming a “House” Cat.. just don’t tell him that! ♡ He is still a Tiger.
