October Volunteer of the Month

Rachel Charles, a paralegal with our firm, received the October Volunteer of the Month award from the Bay Area Humane Society (BAHS) in Green Bay. BAHS wrote: “Rachel started out as a dog docent but has become so much more. She pours so much love and energy into our canine friends and still finds time to help with info booths and adoption events. From the staff, volunteers, and the animals who have been with BAHS, we want to thank you, Rachel, for everything that you do for them! Whether you are stopping by on your lunch breaks to spend time with a needy animal or buying toys at Petco after a BAHS dog has shredded them, everything that you do is for the animals. We are incredibly lucky to have a volunteer like you!”
