Elder Pet Care Benefit

Suede Event Center
418 8th St SE Loveland, CO


Contact: Elizabeth Bowling
Cell : 270-875-6713

Elder Pet Care in Fort Collins is a nonprofit veterinary clinic.  It is run by Dr. Tracy Thomas and a staff of volunteers, and is funded almost entirely through grants and donations.  Dr. Thomas' goal is to provide affordable veterinary care to anyone who needs it, especially those who are unable to go to other clinics because the cost is too high.  Elder Pet Care also offers discounts to seniors over 55 with limited income. 
This small veterinary clinic has played a large role in the lives of many pet owners in Fort Collins and surrounding areas, including one Loveland couple whose dog was saved by Dr. Thomas.  To give back to Elder Pet Care, they decided to take action and raise donations and awareness for this clinic.

On April 14, 2012, there will be a Doggie Diva Casting Call at Suede Event Center from 2pm – 8pm.  During this time there will be pet service providers, pet advice, prizes, and an opportunity for patrons and their pets to dress up, walk the fashion runway, and have a free photograph of the pet.  

Admission is $10, with children under the age of ten free. 

Following the Casting Call, there will be a Roaring 20's Gala from 8pm – 12am, and is 21 and over.  During this time, everyone is encouraged to dress to the nines, put on their dancing shoes, and swing the night away with music from Hot Club of Boulder.  There will also be a silent auction with items donated from local businesses. 

Admission for the Gala is $10. If you wish to attend both events, Admission is $15.

Suede Event Center is located at 418 8th St SE, Suite B2.

Dumb Friends League to open equine center to help Colorado’s abused and neglected horses

FRANKTOWN, Colo. (March 6, 2012) - Some of Colorado’s formerly suffering, neglected and abused horses are getting a second chance. The Dumb Friends League announced it will open a new equine center—a unique private rehabilitation and adoption facility set to be fully operational in June 2012. 
The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center is not a sanctuary or a rescue facility. The Center will not accept owner-relinquished horses. It is for horses, as well as ponies, donkeys and mules, that have been removed from owners’ care by law enforcement authorities. Located near Franktown, Colo., the Center can house up to 100 horses at a time in well-equipped barns and on 140 acres of pasture.

“Our commitment to animals extends beyond the household pets that share our lives,” said President and CEO Bob Rohde. “This has been true since the League was formed in 1910, but it hasn’t been feasible for us to shoulder this added responsibility until now.”

A knowledgeable, professional staff is on the premises seven days a week, and veterinarians are available on an on-call basis. Some of the horses brought to the Center must be impounded while court cases are pending. These animals are secured and well maintained until the cases are resolved.

“Our primary goal is to alleviate suffering,” said Rohde. “It is our hope and desire that many of these horses will be made whole, rehabilitated and placed with new, responsible owners.”
The Harmony Equine Center will be open to visitors on pre-scheduled adoption days and for special events beginning in June.
As a local, independent, nonprofit organization, the Dumb Friends League relies on donations, not government support or funds from national animal welfare organizations.
“This long-standing dream was made possible by a very generous gift from Leslie and John Malone, longtime, loyal friends of the Dumb Friends League,” Rohde said. “Because the number of unwanted horses continues to rise along with skyrocketing hay prices, the need for an equine center of this caliber has never been greater, and we’ll continue to need help from all of our donors.”

For more information about the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center and how you can help, visit or call (303) 751-5772.
