Remembering Jeff Schneider


Memorial Pet Drive to Benefit the Buddy Dog Humane Society

2016-05 Buddy Dog

May 4th marked the one year anniversary of the passing of Jeff Schneider. To honor the memory of our dear partner and friend, Caras & Shulman, PC held a Pet Drive to benefit the Buddy Dog Humane Society of Sudbury, an organization Jeff held close to his heart. During the month of May, the partners and staff donated and collected food and supplies desperately needed by Buddy Dog. And on May 20th members of the C&S team dedicated their time to help the staff at Buddy Dog clean out crates for new rescues and clear brush along their walking path. We would like to thank the Buddy Dog Humane Society for allowing us to lend a hand as we remember Jeff.
