An association executive's best friend.
Dogs make wonderful companions and can improve the quality of life at home and work. And for the association executive who is a staff of one, a dog on the premises can add a sense of security as well.
To highlight these points, Pet Sitters International (PSI), King, North Carolina, is holding its seventh annual Take Your Dog to Work Day on June 24, 2005. Last year's event was sponsored by IAMS Dog Foods, Dayton, Ohio, and businesses and nonprofits in 47 states as well as Guam, Canada, and the U.S. Virgin Islands participated.
"What a difference a day makes," says Patti Moran, president of PSI. "People bringing their dogs to work for one day to celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day can make a huge difference in the adoption rates at shelters around the world. Dogless co-workers will see the human-animal bond enjoyed by their colleagues who are dog parents--and then adopt pets from local animal shelters."
