Take Your Dog To Work Day is celebrated annually on the Friday following Fathers Day.
Created by Pet Sitters International in 1999, this event is one of the longest-running online pet-adoption campaigns and the only event that focuses solely on celebrating dogs and educating pet owners in the workplace.
Tens of thousands participate in the event to promote pet adoptions. Pet ownership is on the rise and the American Heart Association recently announced that owning pets can even reduce the risk of heart disease. In light of these facts, participation in Take Your Dog To Work Day will continue to grow for years to come.
Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University found that having dogs in the workplace can reduce employee stress, increase job satisfaction and work commitment. There is no better reason to give your full support to this worthwhile campaign.
