February 13, 2013 — The Nations Law Firm is proud to support the work of the Animal Law Clinic at South Texas College of Law by donating The Caribbean Owl a “Paint by Paper” canvas print by Grant Manier, one of Houston up-and-coming young artists, for their annual silent auction to raise funds for animal-related charities and organizations. The print was presented to STCL Dean Donald J. Guter and Patricia Guter by Andrea Schmauss, the firms IT Administrator.
The STCL Animal Law Clinic is the first in the State of Texas. This dynamic group allows law students the opportunity to assist in cases ranging from animal cruelty and regulation, to assisting local non-profit animal shelters and rescues within Harris County.
This year’s silent auction is scheduled to begin February 20th, 2013. Funds raised will go to The Animal Law Clinic at South Texas College of Law, Caring Critters, Inc., and SNAP (Spay-Neuter Assistance Program Houston).
