Show Us Your Photos from Take Your Dog to Work Day

The observance on June 22 celebrates dogs as companions and encourages their adoption.

For those of us with pets who work at Patch, every day is Take Your Dog (or Cat) to Work Day.

We are lucky enough to do a bulk of our work from home, meaning more time to spend with our dogs and cats. Our pets share our home offices with us, sometimes curling up near the computers on our desks and, other times, flipping our hands off the keyboards in an effort to get us to pay attention to them.

That's one reason we try to help our readers find their lost pets and run stories in hopes of finding forever homes for dogs and cats in local shelters.

So, did you take your dog to work on Friday? If so, upload a photo to share with us. We'd love to see it!

First celebrated in 1999, Pet Sitters International's Take Your Dog To Work Day was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and breed rescue clubs. This annual event asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption by encouraging their employers to support TYDTW Day.

There's even a Take Your Dog to Work Day song!

Sorry Stephanie, I have taken my cat to work with me and she has never bite anyone. She was getting chemo treatments for cancer and my boss told me to bring her. She layed in her crate all day other than getting out to do her business and ate. Even now my boss doesn't mind if I bring her, she just curls up on the window and watches the animals and birds outside or she will jump up in someone lap and go to sleep.

b smith, i owned cats all my life and they never went outside unless on a lease and they were with me. A responsible cat owner never leaves their cats run.
