Murthy Philanthropy Committee Helps Furry Friends Find New Homes27 Jun 2017
Members of the Murthy Law Firm philanthropy committee participated in a fun event earlier this month to help stray and abandoned animals find loving homes. Ten firm members arrived bright and early at the Timonium Fairgrounds on June 9th to help set up for the Maryland SPCA Summertime Adopt-a-Thon, an annual event during which several participating animal shelters work to find loving adoptive families for more than 100 dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies. The committee organized chairs and tables, set out cages for animals, and assisted event staff as they prepared for the June 10, 2017 “mega adoption event” that is the largest in the Baltimore area and surrounding counties. Shelters at this year’s event include the Baltimore Animal Welfare Alliance, the Baltimore Humane Society, and Baltimore County Animal Services.
Participating committee members were also treated to a tour of the Baltimore Humane Society shelter, where they observed how much shelter employees and volunteers care about the animals and how hard they work to find them forever homes. They were also given an opportunity to interact with some of the cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other animals available for adoption. “It was a really rewarding experience,” paralegal Stephanie Sachse said of the event. “Sad in a way to see all the animals in need of homes and love. But it was also encouraging to witness and be a part of the wonderful work being done to help these animals.” Attorney Joel Yanovich agreed. “I was really impressed by the compassion and dedication demonstrated by the staff at the Baltimore Humane Society. I adopted a wonderful dog a couple of years ago, so I know how much joy the work these people are doing can bring.”
