CNF’s Principal and Board Member Roxanne Ramirez and Communication Specialist Margaret Ramirez recently had a very special appointment with their favorite type of friends – four pawed, furry ones. This year for The Big Give-a day dedicated to raising funds for non-profits, CNF Technologies chose to support the Animal Defense League of Texas.
Many of CNF’s team members proudly boast about their furry family members which led to the company’s latest act of helping the community. CNF donated and matched up to $7,500. The match supported ADL’s mission of providing medical treatment, nutrition, and shelter in a safe, live release facility until they are matched with their forever families.
“On behalf of all CNF employees, many of whom have adopted their animals and are pet lovers, we’d like to gift this donation to the Animal Defense League of Texas. I know my pets are truly a part of my family and what you guys do for the community, and especially these animals, is wonderful,” stated Roxanne.
“I can remember volunteering here with my daughter years ago. She would choose the tiniest dog to walk while I helped clean out the cat cages. She also loved bathing the dogs even though we’d leave smelling like wet puppies. I know the donation will PAW-sitively effect many animal lives and truly make a difference in surrounding neighborhoods,” said Roxanne.
Margaret explained, “I adopted our family dog, Andy, from a shelter and tell people all the time it’s the best $25 I’ve ever spent. He’s known as a big brother in our family and his loyalty, patience, and love is unmatched. We’re so proud that CNF chose to donate to such a great organization like the Animal Defense League of Texas.”
