- Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) May 02, 2011 - One of the nation's fastest-growing financial services companies got groomed to help homeless animals.

Formed in 1866, the society maintain a mission of protecting and promoting the adoption of homeless animals. The SPCA also provides education about responsible pet ownership while reducing pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs.
Foundation Financial Group employees took part in the hair-snipping event, and the financial services company made an additional monetary donation to SPCA.
"This event is a great way for all of our employees to have some fun, get a haircut and participate in this fantastic charity event," said Steve Legost, senior vice president and general manager. "We strive to make a difference in the communities where we work and live, and could not be more proud of our employees."
