No matter whether you are back in the office or still working from home, you can participate in Take Your Pet To Work Week June 21st through 25th.
Created in 1999 by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to highlight dog companionship and to encourage adoptions, Take Your Dog To Work Day has grown. What was once a single Friday event just for dogs has expanded to a weeklong event that includes cats.
Monday, June 21st, get out your hashtags and kitties and #takeyourcattoworkday. PSI will share their favorites photos from the submissions they receive.
For the rest of the week, head over to PSI’s Facebook and Instagram pages and enter their Take Your Dog To Work Week photo contest. They will select one photo per day (five total). The winner will get a $100 donation to the shelter or rescue of their choice.
If you need to participate virtually, ideas can be located at www.petsit.com/takeyourdog.
If you are bringing your pet into work, PSI recommends a few things to make the process work well:
- Get permission first.
- Keep your pet comfortable.
- Don’t force your pet on your coworkers.
- Have an exit strategy if your pet isn’t feeling the office.
- Have a purpose, i.e. involve a shelter or rescue to fully realize the impact of the day.
No matter how your participate, have a good time. And feel free to post your pictures on our social media or tag us (@floofinsandco) in addition to PSI. We love seeing our friends online and in person!
