Gulf Coast Humane Society (GCHS), established in 1947 as the first Southwest Florida nonprofit animal welfare organization, announced personal injury law firm Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz as “Paw-Senting Sponsor” of its inaugural fundraiser, Bark In The Park, planned for Saturday, Dec. 9.
Bark In The Park begins at 10 a.m. at Buckingham Park, 9838 Buckingham Road in Fort Myers, and promises to be a unique family- and pet-friendly event for pet enthusiasts, featuring a beautiful one-mile walk as well as pet resources, vendors, music, photo ops, food trucks, K-9 demonstrations and much more.
“We are appreciative of the law firm’s generous support,” said GCHS Executive Director Gary Willoughby. “With their partnership, we will be able to amplify our impact, grow adoptions and continue to offer affordable care to the pets in our community.”
The firm sponsored 60 free pet adoptions from GCHS for its 60th anniversary in 2022-23, along with multiple staff donations of pet food over the years.
“As a law firm, our mission is to help those who need someone to fight for them. That includes our furry friends,” said Christopher Smith, managing partner for Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz. “As a part of the community, our goal is to make a positive difference through support, leadership and volunteering.”
