D2 Architecture Celebrates 10 Years with Fundraiser for Pet Partners

D2 Architecture commemorated its 10-year anniversary with a celebration on October 16, 2019, in Dallas, TX. In 10 years, D2 has built a solid practice focusing primarily on the design of senior living communities. Over the years the firm has attracted both staff and clients that share that passion – growing together around the mission of designing and developing the best places in the country for seniors to reside.

To complete the celebration, D2 sponsored a fundraiser for Pet Partners of North Texas. Pet Partners a non-profit organization that brings therapy animals to interact with a wide variety of groups including senior living communities, veterans with PTSD, students with literacy challenges, patients in recovery, people with intellectual disabilities, and those approaching end of life. Many of the clients D2 serves welcome Pet Partners into the communities to enrich the lives and wellbeing of their residents.

“We are thrilled to support an organization with such a meaningful mission,” said David Dillard, president of D2 Architecture. “There is so much joy in seeing the results therapy animals can provide and we are happy to support Pet Partners as they promote health and wellness to the same populations that we serve in the design of senior living communities.”

The event raised $1,500 for the organization which was given during a visit from Pet Partners of North Texas Executive Director, Sharyn Casey, Pet Partners’ national CEO, Annie Peters, and three therapy animals with their handlers at D2’s office in downtown Dallas on December 3.

“Pet Partners is excited to team up with D2 Architecture to highlight the benefits of animal therapy and workplace wellness programs to the community. To see the enthusiastic D2 Architecture staff interacting with our therapy animal teams and enjoy their Visit Day was so uplifting, said Annie Peters, President, and CEO of Pet Partners. Honestly, I don’t know who was enjoying the day more, the D2 staff or the therapy animals”.
