The DHC/STC “Legal Beagles” had a howling good time at this year’s SPCA Pet Walk on October 6 at Vinoy Park! Our team walked to raise much-needed funds in support of the SPCA’s critical mission to care for the 8,000+ animals that are surrendered by their owners every year, along with injured wildlife, at their shelter in Largo.
Our office set a modest goal of $1,000 and we raised over $3,000! With our new logo and apparel, our team also won the “Best Team Name” category. A tremendous thanks to all the donors, walkers, volunteers and staff of the SPCA for making this such a successful event for the animals. This year's Pet Walk raised over $125,000!

Who are the Legal Beagles?
The Legal Beagles were named in honor of Bonnie Beagle (1991-2001), owned by Faye M. DeLoach, wife of firm founder Dennis R. DeLoach Jr. Over the years, the team has participated in many SPCA Pet Walks under the leadership of long-time probate paralegal Judy Matthews along with estate planning paralegal Tammy Dina.
Attorney Rep DeLoach is a former long-time board member of the SPCA and has been supporting that organization since he was 5 years old as seen here wearing his SPCA t-shirt and cowboy boots in 1979! His father, Dennis R. DeLoach Jr., was on the board at the time. His wife, Simone DeLoach, is currently on the Board of Directors.
