Hartman-Simons-Atlanta-Humane-Society-LogoWith the commercial real estate sector showing increased activity, this promises to be a busy spring at Hartman Simons. Nevertheless, we’re still taking some time out of our hectic schedules to help our four-legged friends.

Throughout the month of April, we will be working to raise money and supplies for an organization near and dear to our hearts: the Atlanta Humane Society (AHS). Below are four components of this month-long effort.

Sponsorship of the Upcoming AHS Pet Parade. Hartman Simons has contributed a $1,000 sponsorship of the parade, which will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 21, at Atlantic Station.

The route for the parade is just over a mile long and winds through Atlantic Station. Walkers are welcome to bring their dogs, as long as the animals are on a leash and are up to date on their vaccinations.

Events surrounding the parade, which will be held rain or shine, will include an adopt-a-thon and various pet contests.

Participating in the Parade. Hartman Simons attorneys and staff will be walking in the parade and are encouraging their friends, family and clients to do so as well as a member of the firm’s team. Registration is $30 in advance and $35 on the day of the event.

Each team member will receive an online fundraising page where friends and family members can support their participation by making a donation. The event web site will track how much money Hartman Simons and the other teams raise for AHS. Donations can be made online (which includes a small processing fee) or by check.

Donating Supplies. The firm also will be collecting items needed by AHS. Requested supplies include bleach, non-clumping cat litter, dog bowls, laundry detergent, pet shampoo, towels, paper towels, copy paper and housetraining pads. For AHS’ complete wish list, click here.

Jeans Days. Throughout the month, Hartman Simons attorneys and staff can wear jeans to work on Wednesdays if they bring $5 or a supply on the AHS’ wish list. The money will support the $1,000 sponsorship, with the firm contributing the rest.
