We love celebrating our colleagues and giving back to our community, so we combined these two loves several years ago. Each month, BlueModus’ Management Team selects two colleagues who shine and represent the values that make this a great workplace. These two colleagues selected a charity, and we donated to it on their behalf.
For May 2023, one of those colleagues is Alex Annen. He joined the BlueModus Team in November 2021 as a Senior Web Developer. Alex’s level of care, stewardship of our culture, and ability to deliver on complex projects make Alex a star. Simply put, his team loves working with him. Plus, Alex is always looking to grow by working on personal technical projects to learn beyond what is currently on his plate.
Alex has selected the Critter Adoption and Rescue Effort (C.A.R.E.) for a $500 donation from BlueModus. C.A.R.E. is a no-kill animal shelter for neglected, abused, and unwanted cats and dogs with a mission to reduce the number of homeless and abandoned animals through adoption, sterilization, and education.
“I would love to donate to C.A.R.E., a local animal shelter in Ruskin, Florida, that has been helping animals find homes since the early 2000s,” shared Alex. “Lana, our dog, is a graduate of C.A.R.E., and we are so grateful to them for helping us find her. The donation will go towards helping C.A.R.E. continue their important work of finding homes for animals in need.”
C.A.R.E. was founded in 2000 by Dr. Hal Ott, D.V.M., and a group of local citizens concerned about the high number of healthy animals being euthanized yearly in Hillsborough County, Florida. With a mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and adopting stray and owner-relinquished animals, C.A.R.E. opened a small, 3-acre shelter in 2001. In 2003, a discount spay-neuter clinic was added to help the animals of low-income residents to reduce the number of homeless pets further. Over the ensuing years, C.A.R.E. has added an Intensive Care Unit for newly arrived cats, a large new cat facility, and a small breed dog addition to allow the smaller dogs to be separated from the larger dogs.
