Come see meow it’s going at Vida!

Vida is Spanish for life. To live is to be connected — to people, to community, to animals. The Vida building embodies this connectivity between human and animal life, as well as the connectivity of the Spur campus to the diverse cultures and Latinx ties within the surrounding neighborhoods of Globeville and Elyria-Swansea.

What you’ll do at Vida

CSU Spur partners on site at Vida

The Dumb Friends League Veterinary Hospital at CSU Spur, advances the League’s mission by providing high-quality and donor-subsidized veterinary services to pets of families who otherwise wouldn’t have access to care. The CSU Spur facility is also a teaching hospital, providing essential veterinary procedures “on view” for the public and hosting 4th year veterinary student externs from CSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The League also offers internships at CSU Spur for new veterinary graduates interested in accessible care.

The Temple Grandin Equine Center at CSU Spur is CSU’s second TGEC location providing equine-assisted services. Research is conducted while providing related services to individuals with a broad range of challenges and disabilities. Services include physical, occupational, and speech therapy, behavioral counseling and therapy, and adaptive horsemanship activities.

The Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation space at CSU Spur offers services to equine athletes ranging from rehabilitation on underwater treadmills to vibration therapy and acupuncture. The services are visible to the public and reflect the expertise and offerings of CSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
