On May 1st of 2023 Pioneer Financial Group President Art Colello, his wife Gail, advisors and staff from the Warwick, RI office visited EGAPL Heart of Rhode Island Animal Rescue League with a donation of $4,000 to aid in the care of an influx in beautiful pets that have been surrendered to them recently. A crisis that we are seeing across the country which continues to rise, where animal shelters are being overwhelmed with surrendered animals; it is Pioneer Financial Group’s belief and hope that with community aid and awareness, all of these animals can soon find their forever home.
