One of the benefits of working in the animal welfare world is that our main office is pet-friendly. Having dogs in the office helps lower stress and also forces us out of our chairs for much-needed walks. We also have a couple cats that accompany their humans to the office. Though it takes a special kind of cat (one that enjoys car travel, and dogs, just to give you an idea) in the spring and summertime the office is also populated with foster kittens.
Bringing foster kittens to the office is encouraged because it helps with their overall socialization and exposes them to all sorts of sounds and smells. Animals in the workplace also help the staff to bond and keep us ever mindful of our mission.
If you would like to learn more about how to make your office a pet-friendly office, check out our past blog on pets in the workplace policies. We want to wish you a very happy Take Your Dog to Work Day for 2014 and introduce you to some of the furry faces we love seeing everyday!
