Take Your Dog to Work Day® 2010
Dogs in the workplace are a perk for people and pooches
Inspired by Take Your Dog to Work Day®, created by Pet Sitters International and held this year on June 25, The Humane Society of the United State established a pet-friendly policy for HSUS offices in 2007.
Now The HSUS and Petplan, America’s top-rated pet insurance provider and one of The HSUS’s corporate partners, are teaming up to encourage businesses to consider programs permitting employees to bring dogs in the workplace.
A dogs at work policy can increase productivity, boost morale, and strengthen the bond between people and their pets. It has certainly worked for The HSUS and PetPlan.
Check out the photos above of just a few of the beloved pooches who join our HSUS employees at work.
Bringing your dog to work will not only make your dog happy, but it could also increase dog adoptions nationwide. Research has shown that one of the main reasons people decide not to adopt pets is because they are too often away at work.
