Do you want to participate in PSI's Take Your Dog To Work Day®(TYDTWDay®)on Friday, June 21? Whether you are a pet owner, employer, shelter work, pet-care professional, reporter or blogger, there are many ways you can help celebrate dogs and promote pet adoption on this special day!
If you want to plan a TYDTWDay event at your workplace, download and share the TYDTWDay Action Pack with your boss or the head of human resources. Ask him or her to consider hosting a TYDTWDay event on Friday, June 21, 2013. If the office is closed on Friday or employees are interested in bringing other pets, consider celebrating on another day during Take Your Pet to Work Week™, June 17-21, 2013.
The TYDTWDay Action Pack provides the information you need to address any concerns your company may have and to successfully plan and promote your TYDTWDay event.
Ask your local shelter or favorite rescue group to join your TYDTWDay event. Invite them to bring adoptable pets or information about local adoption opportunities to your place of business. Consider holding a fundraiser to benefit the guest shelter. You can also search for local adoptable pets at Adopt-A-Pet.com.
Or, if you work or volunteer with a local shelter or rescue group, consider reaching out to local businesses and ask them to participate in TYDTWDay and considering using their event to support your local shelter or group.
Work with fellow pet lovers and pet professionals, including pet sitters and dog trainers. TYDTWDay is the perfect opportunity to educate employees about pet adoptions, responsible pet ownership and the benefits of hiring a professional pet sitter. If you are interested with partnering with a local pet sitter, use PSI's Pet Sitter Locator to find a participating PSI member in your area. To locate a dog trainer in your area, visit www.apdt.com.
If you are a pet-care professional, TYDTWDay offers a great opportunity to educate local pet owners and make them aware of your services. Contact a local participating business and offer to assist with pet-care needs or present a session on pet care on TYDTWDay.
Be sure to tell others in your community about this uniquely positive awareness campaign for dogs. Pet owners, share the TYDTWDay Action Pack and ask your employer to participate. You can also spread the word to fellow pet lovers. Follow TYDTWDay on Facebook and Twitter and share event information on your social media pages as well.
