You all know that I'm a dog lover, right? That's Sadie who passed away 5 years ago this month. She has her own dogbook profile on Facebook! Anyway, if I still had a dog it would be at my feet tomorrow in my office. Here's the scoop:
First celebrated in 1999, Take Your Dog To Work Day was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and breed rescue clubs. This annual event encourages employers to experience the value of pets in their workplace for this one special day to promote pet adoptions.
On June 20, 2008, businesses, animal shelters and pet-care professionals from around the world will work together to better the lives of shelter dogs everywhere. Thousands of businesses will open their doors to employees' pets on this day in celebration of the great companions dogs make. Pet Sitters International invites your business to Join us! as we celebrate a decade of working dogs!
If you aren't able to bring your pup to your place of employment, considering volunteering at your local animal shelter or even taking in a rescued pet of your own.
