It’s Take Your Dog to Work Day, and you know what that means: we want your photos of Fido in the office.
Take Your Dog to Work Day was established by Pet Sitters International as a way to bring attention to animals in need. Every year since 1999, the organization has encouraged offices to turn pet-friendly on June 24, much in the same vein as take your daughter to work day – after all, pets are surrogate children to some people, according to PSI president Patti Moran.
“We believed the idea had merit but it was a tough sell convincing other businesses that the Day could be a great morale booster for employees and help promote local pet adoptions. For the first few years, we spent countless hours calling companies around the country, pitching the idea and encouraging them to participate,” she says.
“It was truly a grassroots effort.”
