Once again this wonderful day is almost upon us and we have again proudly sponsored this great initiative.
This Friday (24th June) is Bring Your Dog To Work Day 2017. HOORAY!
#BringYourDogToWorkDay is an annual nationwide event that raises money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs.
Last year, businesses from across the UK (including vet surgeries, pet product manufacturers, investment firms, national energy companies, estate agents, private jet charters and marketing agencies) welcomed their dog loving employees into the workplace, along with their loyal four-legged companions.
This year the event is raising money for:
All Dogs Matter - a charity that rehomes hundreds of dogs every year in London and Norfolk.
Animals Asia - Founded in 1998 by Jill Robinson MBE, Animals Asia has worked tirelessly around the horrific dog and cat meat trade as well as the cruel bear bile farming industry.
As well as wanting to raise funds for a good cause, the folks at HOWND wanted to publicise the benefits of having dogs in safe work environments. Many scientific studies have concluded that the presence of pets can substantially reduce a person’s stress level in the workplace.
Increased job satisfaction, team co-operation and morale have all been reported in employees that spend the workday with their pets. So in addition to raising funds, #BringYourDogToWorkDay is all about creating joy and happiness to workplaces across the UK.
If your workplace isn’t a suitable environment for dogs, you can still play an important role in Bring Your Dog To Work Day! You can help raise money for All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia by making an online donation, uploading your logo (businesses) or photo (individuals), and of course spreading the word to your friends and family on social media using #BringYourDogToWorkDay.
