PSI’s 26th Annual Take Your Dog to Work Day Shines Spotlight on Pet Adoption

Pet Sitters International encourages businesses worldwide to participate in this fun event for a cause on Friday, June 21.




(PRESS RELEASE) KING, N.C.— On Friday, June 21, companies from a wide range of industries will welcome employees’ dogs for Pet Sitters International’s 26th annual Take Your Dog To Work Day (TYDTWDay), and the event creator is reminding participants not to forget the special cause behind the fun event: to encourage people to adopt dogs from local shelters, rescue groups and humane societies.

View the news release online to learn more about the 2024 event.

“Our pets bring such joy to our lives, yet in the ‘90s I saw story after story about the rising intake rates at shelters across the country and was torn apart thinking about the millions of shelter pets euthanized each year,” said PSI founder & CEO Patti Moran. “I wanted to find a unique way for PSI to give back to the pet community from which our members earn their living, and Take Your Dog To Work Day was born.”

PSI encourages businesses and pet parents to visit here to access a free 2024 TYDTWDay Event Toolkit that includes a variety of celebration tips and ideas—as well as a sample “dogs at work” policy, employee participation form templates and more downloadable resources.

It also accommodates cat lovers (and other pets) and those who cannot participate on TYDTWDay. The entire week leading up to the event, June 17-21, 2024, is Take Your Pet To Work Week and Monday, June 17, 2024, is Take Your Cat To Work Day.


Here are some of the media resources available to you on the press release page and our media resources page:

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
