Blog: It’s Bring Your Dog to Work Day!
It’s extra special today to have dogs in our office. Meet some of our pawsome colleagues.
It’s Bring Your Dog to Work Day
There are more than 25 dogs in our office today of all shapes, sizes and breeds. And, although today is Bring Your Dog to Work Day, having dogs in our Support Office is not an unusual occurrence. Yes, we’re lucky, and we know it!
The Vets4Pets Support Office was for many years sited in an idyllic, rural barn conversion, which was ideal for dogs. When, in 2016, we finally outgrew that location, we knew that our new home would have to be dog friendly so had our four-legged colleagues firmly in mind when we found and fitted out the historic Isambard House in Swindon to be our new home. We fitted in a ‘doggie kitchen’, a dedicated storage space for their coats, leads, toys and beds, and there’s even a Groom Room. We also have a Petiquette Policy to ensure we maintain a happy office space (for dogs and humans) so we all can enjoy the many benefits that come with having pets in the office.
At Vets4Pets, we know that pets are not just pets…they are family members and more. They are companions, councillors, fitness trainers, comforters and often, our best friend.
Bring Your Dog to Work Day is a day that "raises money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs", and this is something close to our hearts. As an organisation within the veterinary profession, it’s only natural for us to support charities that focus on the welfare of animals. The charities we have recently supported included: The Cinnamon Trust, StreetVet and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
At Vets4Pets, we know that pets are not just pets…they are family members and more. They are companions, councillors, fitness trainers, comforters and often, our best friend. Our 2019 Vet Report celebrates this special human-animal bond and investigates how we support our pets and how they support us in turn.
So, on this special day, we’d like to introduce you to just some of the regular, four-legged visitors to our Support Office who definitely bring a smile to our face and lift our spirits.
