Congratulations to OrthoPets!

We were thrilled to learn that CRI faculty member Martin Kaufmann and colleagues at OrthoPets were surprised last month by Deluxe Corporation with a $25,000 Small Business Revolution Award. Deluxe honored four businesses across the U.S. as part of its 100th anniversary.

Amanda Brinkman, chief brand and communications officer at Deluxe, describes the surprise event: "Last week in Denver, one of our most moving experiences occurred in a restaurant that serves people and their pets. Over the course of our contest, OrthoPets received the most nominations, nearly 80. This unique company provides prosthetics and orthotic braces to help animals recover from broken limbs or loss of limbs. Working with a member of their staff, we invited past patients and their owners to help surprise OrthoPets owner Martin Kaufmann and his family. OrthoPets was chosen not only because they received the most nominations, but because their mission is so moving, helping animals across the country recover from what could otherwise be life-ending injuries."
