William Schuiling acts as the owner and chairman of Brown Automotive Group, LTD, an automotive company established in 1970. Apart from overseeing his company’s operations, William E. Schuiling also gives back to his community through various charities. Together with Brown’s Toyota of Glen Burnie and Brown’s Honda City, Mr. Schuiling donated $12,000 to the Baltimore Humane Society.

The Baltimore Humane Society (BHS) was established by socialite Elsie Seeger Barton during the early 1900s. With her pets as her constant companions, Barton decided to dedicate her life to caring for homeless animals. From its beginnings as a small refuge on a family estate, the Baltimore Humane Society has grown to offer a number of animal care programs, including memorial and bereavement services.

Through the Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park, BHS recognizes that pets will always be part of a family, even after they have passed on. The society offers several funeral services, such as cremation, pet removal and transport, and casket and headstone selection. Pet owners who need emotional support during the process can also attend sessions with a private counselor, or join the monthly bereavement group. Finally, pet owners can also lay their pets to rest at the BHS Memorial Park located within the organization’s wildlife sanctuary.
