Did you know there is a Take Your Dog To Work Day (TYDTWDay)? Or better yet, an entire week? June 17th-21st has been designated Take Your Pet To Work Week, with Friday the 21st chosen as the special day. What a great occasion don’t you think? Not only does it get your four-legged friend out of the house for the day, it also promotes pet adoption!
So how does it work? We’re urging all pet lovers to celebrate the human-canine bond by encouraging their employers to support Take Your Dog To Work Day. Let your employer know that supporting and partaking in this day promotes pet adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and breed rescues. This occasion dates back to 1999 when it was created by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to celebrate what great companions dogs make.
PSI put together a handy list of tips to ensure that you and your pup are prepared for the big day! Below is an overview, but to see each tip explained in more detail click here.
Good Planning + Good Dog = A Good Day
Pet Sitters International (PSI) asks that those businesses and employees who participate focus on the fun and celebrate the value of pets in the workplace, all while emphasizing and educating about the importance of adoption. PSI also requests that their permission be granted before using TYDTWDay events to advertise or promote specific products or services. Their licensing and sponsorship opportunities can be found here.
