After receiving this kind of support and recognition, how does a Baltimore Law Firm give back? Easy– with rats! We have adopted the non-profit organization apopo HeroRATs as our Firm charity. This organization trains African Giant Pouched Rats to detect land mines in Africa and Asia.
Once detected, mines can safely be removed, saving lives and putting dangerous land back into use. To date, these rats have detected over 100,000 land mines and returned in excess of 5,000 acres to productive use! Making this charity even better is the fact that the trainers and caretakers are recruited from the impoverished communities served by the HeroRATs.
As a thank you to all of our clients and realtor friends for their support, we are kicking off 2017 by adopting 6 HeroRATs. It is a small first step to building our very own rat army to carry out this important work.
