PETS AT WORK

It’s time to go pet-friendly.

In 2016, we declared April 19 as National Pets at Work Day to help raise awareness of the benefits of pet-friendly offices and to encourage more employers to allow pets into their workplaces.

62% of pet parents have a more positive attitude toward companies that allow pets at work.*

Today, with more pets in homes due to the pandemic, it has never been more important for employers to consider going pet-friendly.
