BROOMFIELD, COLO. — Banfield opened its 500th hospital in late October.

To underscore the event, the company made donations to local charities totalling $32,500.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony drew local dignitaries, including Thornton, Colo., Mayor Noel Busck, Colorado State University Veterinary College Dean Dr. Lance Perryman, Humane Society of Boulder Valley Executive Director Jan McHugh, Denver Dumb Friends League President Bob Rohde and Every Creature Counts Executive Director Sarah Skarie.

"Opening our 500th hospital is a historic event for Banfield, and we want to make this a historic event for pets in the Mile High City, too. We know there are many homeless pets in need, and what better way to make this a grand opening than to make a grand donation to pets at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley, the Denver Dumb Friends League and Every Creature Counts," says Karen Johnson, DVM, Banfield vice president.

In honor of Banfield's 500th hospital opening and 50th anniversary, Banfield will award the Denver Dumb Friends League and the Humane Society of Boulder Valley a total of 500 certificates that can be redeemed for $50 in veterinary services at any Colorado Banfield hospital.

In addition, Banfield will donate $2,500 to Humane Society of Boulder Valley, Denver Dumb Friends League and Every Creature Counts to help with other shelter expenses, valuing the total donation at $32,500.
