Pet Sitters International and Fourleggedlife.com Partner to Celebrate and Save Pets’ Lives
The two pet-industry groups are teaming up to unleash a full day of working hard and playing hard with dogs for a good cause on June 22.
Pet lovers are encouraged to kick-off this double dog day celebration by participating in PSI’s 14th annual Take Your Dog To Work Day (TYDTWDay®). Businesses and pet lovers interested in “increasing the canine employment rate” by participating in TYDTWDay, can visit takeyourdog.com to learn more and download the free 2012 Action Pack with step-by-step instructions for planning a workplace event, a sample “dogs at work” policy and customizable event materials.
“Since 1999, thousands of businesses have supported TYDTWDay’s mission of celebrating dogs and promoting pet adoption—and more than 100,000 visitors explored takeyourdog.com last summer to learn more about the event,” noted Patti Moran, PSI president, pet-sitting industry pioneer and author of Pet Sitting for Profit. “This year we anticipate even more pet lovers joining us in our mission to increase the ‘canine employment rate’ by participating in both TYDTWDay and National Dog Party Day.”
After working K9 to 5, pet owners and their dogs can continue the celebration and party with a purpose at one of the official National Dog Party Day events, scheduled to take place in San Diego, New York City and Miami. Each party will benefit a great pet charity in its area: Spay Neuter Action Project (SNAP) of San Diego County, Paws 4 U Rescue in Miami and Bideawee in New York City. Interested dog owners can learn more at dogpartyday.com.
Arden Moore, noted pet trend expert, founder of Four Legged Life.com and host of the Oh Behave show on Pet Life Radio.com, the world’s top-rated pet podcast, said the partnership combines two unique events to support a tremendous cause.
“It’s time to work and party with a purpose!” Moore said. “Pet owners should take advantage of these two important opportunities on June 22, and who better to have as your work and party partner than your well-mannered dog?
