Dr Garcia Aka the Patron Saint of Pets
Since 1961 - Dr Edward Garcia DVM has assisted homeless pets and people in need - He was the first Hispanic to graduate from Colorado State University's Veterinary Program and in 1971 was the first to start a 24 hour Animal Hospital in the Denver metro area at I-70 & Pecos St. 
Dr Garcia never held finances at the forefront but the medical care for the pets was his only concern.  In 2007 we were granted a Non Profit status as he had already given over $40,000.00 a year for 40 years out of his pocket to assist people and animals in need. He has been honored & well revered by the Veterinary Community and Pet People all over the world.  His legacy will always be the caring sole who gave up riches to save the lives of animals. His current data base of clientele reaches from 1961 to present. He needs a proper funeral where people can bring thier pets to honor this great Animal Doctor, Grandfather, Father and Friend to so many. The animals he has helped now ranges into the millions. God may he rest in peace.

My dogs and I loved Dr. Garcia over the past 30 years, totally unconventional but it was obvious how much he loved animals.

Dr Garcia took care of my dogs for all of their lives with compassion and love. We are better for having known him and he will be missed. In memory of Stewart and Scooby for Dr Garcia and all his good works. Thanks

From North Metro on Pecos to Wheat Ridge, for 10+ years we knew we and all our dogs were always in the most skilled, capable and generous hands of Dr. Garcia. In addition to having Teresa at the helm of running the whole show and dealing with our crazy dogs (and the old night club craziness), and Yolanda fearlessly juggling everything else. We knew our dogs were always taken care of and received the best care possible from Dr. Garcia. Rest in peace, Kara and John Shillingburg
