Connecting People and Animals

Colorado State University (CSU) is a key partner in the reimaging of the National Western Center (NWC), a combined 250-acre site for year-round education and entertainment. Vida at Spur is one of three buildings on the CSU Campus at National Western Center.

Vida at Spur brings together University experts, veterinarians from around the region, clinical and therapeutic service providers, and non-profit organizations to create a space focused on various aspects of animal health, including the connection between people and animals.  The facility provides: a home for veterinarians to treat equine athletes; a space for equine assisted therapies and activities; a clinic for companion animal care; educational spaces that inspire visitors of all ages and showcase the connection between people and animals; and short-term living spaces to support student education and other visitors to the site.
