'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' - instead of a dress down day could your dog come to work for a donation
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)
Next Friday June 22nd is 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' - instead of a dress down day could your dog come to work for a donation
Next Friday June 22nd is Bring Your Dog to Work Day.
Having a dog in the room can make human colleagues more cooperative, reduce stress, increase job satisfaction and productivity.
When adopting a dog or any animal from the GSPCA we often ask how many hours potential owners may be at work. Perhaps the question should actually be - are you able to take your dog to work?
Discussing the benefits of taking a dog to work might just result in a match with a dog we have in for homing.
We rehome hundreds of pets every year, with an average 40 to 50 dogs in need of a forever home in Guernsey each year.

Lorna Prince Animal Welfare Manager said "We rehome and help dozens of dogs every month through the Shelter and the dog training classes we run at the GSPCA, and it is really nice to hear of those owners that can take their dogs to work."
"Not every dog owner has the right type of work place to take their dog or dogs to work, but why not ask your boss and see what they say."Annie and Lorna Prince bring your dog to work day GSPCA Guernsey
"Annie my little dog often comes to work with me which she both enjoys and often earns her keep with helping with tasks around the Shelter such as school visits or seeing how dogs in for homes behave around other dogs, as does Mouse my other dog who was one of the Slovakian rescue dogs."
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Many work places on a Friday have a mufti day but why not look at it with a twist and see if your dog can come along with you for 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' on the 22nd June."
"Last year KPMG was just one of many companies that took part in 'Take Your Dog To Work Day' and we are hoping that many places of work will celebrate this day next week."
"There are lots of ways to get involved and help the GSPCA and loads of ideas on our fund raising web page, but this Friday don't forget if you can please do take your dog to work."
"Your dogs could really help the dogs in our care as we have launched an Urgent Kennel Floor Appeal."
"Our kennel floors to replace and repair are going to cost £65,000 so any help or support would be hugely appreciated."
"Pictured is Bella a beagle puppy and soon to be in a new home and our support will help pups just like her in our care."
