TAKE YOUR DOG TO WORK DAYÂ® 2006 Aims to Bring Businesses, Shelters and Pet Sitters Together for Dogsâ€™ Sake
KING, NCâ€”On June 23, 2006, Pet Sitters International will host its 8th Annual Take Your Dog To Work DayÂ® event. Modern Dog magazine, Magna Hospitality Group and PETS 911 have joined PSI in its effort to bolster pet adoptions from shelters, humane societies and rescue groups and educate the public on the benefits of responsible pet ownership.
Pet Sitters International, the creator of the day, is asking businesses around the world to allow employees to bring their well-mannered dogs to the office on Take Your Dog To Work Day. The celebratory event is intended to promote the human-animal bond by facilitating positive interactions between dogless co-workers and their colleaguesâ€™ canine companions. However, there is much more to this annual festival of dog than simply celebrating manâ€™s and womanâ€™s best friend.
Anyone desiring to learn more about TYDTWDay or how to participate can visit PSIâ€™s Web site www.petsit.com and download one of three free information packs. Each information pack comes with support materials as well as helpful tips and articles designed to help businesses, animal shelters and professional pet sitters work together in supporting the June 23 adoption effort.
