High Swartz Partner Thomas E. Panzer Appointed to Bucks County SPCA Board of Directors

High Swartz, a full-service law firm with offices in Southeastern Pennsylvania is pleased to announce that Thomas E. Panzer of its Doylestown Office was appointed to the Bucks County SPCA Board of Directors. With the appointment, Tom continues his over 25 years of service and dedication to the Bucks community. In addition to his municipal, zoning, and workers compensation law practice, Tom served as Bucks County Treasurer from 2015 through 2019 and served two terms as a Warminster Township Supervisor.

The Bucks County SPCA is a private non-profit with two open-admission, no-time-limit shelters located in Lahaska and Quakertown PA. Since 1912, their mission is to assist animals in need and prevent suffering through rescues, rehoming, cruelty investigation and prosecution, and community outreach. The Buck County SPCA Board of Directors, along with its executive director, Linda Reider, meet virtually monthly to discuss policy decisions, budgets, and fundraising.

“It’s a great honor to volunteer my time and be part of such a great organization. The BCSPCA has long been a champion of animal rights in the Bucks community and I look forward to assisting the Board in keeping it that way," Mr. Panzer said.

Tom’s love of animals made it an easy decision to join the board. The Panzers recently rescued Leila, a foxhound mix who is now a happy member of the family. She joins Tom, his wife Lisa, and their two cats, Charlie and Jinx at their home in Warminster.

The thousands of animals in the BCSPCA’s two locations helped every year are assisted by donations which provide food, shelter and medical care. Donations to the SPCA can be made here. Volunteering is another great way to help their cause. Interested individuals must by 18 years of age and must be able to commit at least 8 hours a month for a minimum of 6 months and complete orientation and training.
