Today marks the 6th annual Bring Your Dog To Work Day, a nationwide event that has been growing in popularity since it began in 2014. It’s an annual event designed to raise money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs.
Participating businesses across the UK are welcoming our four-legged friends into our workplaces on Friday 21st June and employees are encouraged to make a donation with all proceeds this year going to All Dogs Matter, who rescue, rehabilitate ad rehome dogs in and around London, and find homes for dogs in need from overseas. Proceeds are also going towards Animals Asia who promote compassion and respect for all animals and works to bring about long-term change, working to end the barbaric bear bile trade, end the trade in dogs and cats for food and campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks in Asia.
We are very dog friendly at Profile with four of us having furry pals (beside our husbands) for company, and what better day to introduce them!
Here we have Millie, our very own office pooch, owned by Mira! Millie is five years old and a schnauzer border terrier cross.
We aren't sure who is smiling more in this photo, Millie, or the lovely Katie!
This is Doug, Doug is an 8 year old black Labrador, owned by Marianne who is in charge of anything finance in our Profile Team.
Doug also looking incredibly happy with this huge grin!
This gorgeous old boy is Bailey, he's a 9 year old chocolate Labrador owned by Lynn!
I'm not sure that nose could get any cuter!
And this mop like creature is my 5 month old cockapoo, Coco. Do not be fooled by the innocent expression on that hairy face!
If you're lucky enough to be able to participate in Bring Your Dog To Work Day, then we'd love to see the pictures, if not you can still support the cause by donating or spreading awareness of these two worthwhile causes!
