The couple purchased their service territory in August 2004 and has since made it a priority to support worthy causes which are close to their hearts. A commercial client of the Neu’s, Douglas Aquatics, introduced them to the Richmond Animal League and they have supported them ever since.
Describing themselves as “huge animal lovers,” Terry Neu said he makes it a point to ask his residential customers about each of their pets.
“Discussing homeowners’ animals is a common ground,” he said. “It automatically puts them at ease and shows them you have something in common- that you’re not just a stranger there to do the job.”
As the owners of a beagle/shepherd mix, the Neu’s said they feel obligated to contribute to their community’s health and wellbeing and supporting low cost spay and neuter clinics will make a huge difference in the long run.
The Richmond Animal League has matched homeless dogs and cats with families since 1979. Their facility can house up to 30 dogs and 60 cats. They placed more than 800 animals in forever homes last year. For more information, visit http://www.ral.org
