TAKE YOUR PET TO WORK WEEK
June 18th - 22nd is Take Your Pet to Work Week, and businesses are encouraged to participate!
The week kicks off with #meowmonday and wraps up with #takeyourdogtoworkday. Studies show that having pets at the office lead to a more creative environment, better productivity and co-workers who get along better. If those aren't good reasons to take your kitty or pup to work, we don't know what is!
When approaching your employer, make sure you have a plan for your pet. Pet Sitters International has been promoting #takeyourdogtoworkday for years and has some great advice on the do's and dont's of animals in the office.
includes information on how to safely host an animal in the office.

If you can't have animals in the office, consider donating to our pets here at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter! Businesses that raise at least $100 will receive a thank you certificate from the Cheyenne Animal Shelter to display and recognition in our newsletter, which is published two times a year and distributed to 5,000 people. A great way to raise some cash is by donating money collected from "wear blue jean days."
