Friday is Take Your Dog to Work Day

Friday, June 24, 2011 is Take Your Dog to Work Day. Since 1999 dog lovers and their accepting employers have been participating in TYDTWD in an effort to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage adoption. Pet Sitters International, an educational association for pet sitters, sponsors the effort.

Locally, PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society will be set up with adoptable pets at Hyperion Bank at 2nd & Girard from 11am – 2pm this Friday, June 24. On Saturday, catch them at Rittenhouse Square and on Main Street in Manayunk during the Arts Festival.

With BYOD Brunches launching this Saturday at Square 1682, at The Hotel Palomar, and Operation Ava bringing adoptable pups there, it could be a big weekend for dogs in need all around the area.

But it you already have a dog, and you're planning to bring your dog to work, take a picture and post it to my facebook page – Knowitall Philly.

Why? Because I like dogs. And because I want to see if anyone will actually do it. I’d really like to know how many of you will be participating.
