Jaburg Wilk recently supported the 2019 Salud! Endless Pawssibilities fundraising event benefitting Gabriel’s Angels.
Micalann C. Pepe, insurance law partner at Jaburg Wilk and Gabriel’s Angels Board Member, said “We were grateful to raise funds for our organization. It is exciting to see the positive work that certified therapy dogs do helping children build coping skills, learn respect and build trusting relationships with the therapy dog team.”
Founded in 2000, Gabriel’s Angels’ mission is to inspire confidence, compassion, and best behaviors in at-risk children through pet therapy. They are currently providing pet therapy services to 122 partner agencies and serve over 15,000 children in the Phoenix, Tucson and Prescott areas annually at no cost to the agencies or children. Registered Pet Therapy Teams comprised of owners and their pets, visit facilities serving abused, neglected and at-risk children. The therapy visits provide children with unconditional love and teach core social behaviors
