Take Your Dog To Work Day

It’s Take Your Dog to Work Day! Do you feel remorse and heartache every time you leave your dog at home during the workweek? Well, today is your lucky day!

An organization called Pet Sitters International declared the first Take Your Dog to Work Day in 1999. The purpose of this unique holiday is to celebrate our canine companions, and to encourage dog adoption from humane societies, breed rescue clubs, and animal shelters. Each year on the Friday after Father’s Day, thousands of offices participate in this nationwide event.

To celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day, take your pooch to the office! You can also visit the Take Your Dog to Work Day website to register as an official participant and enter a nationwide photo contest!
