Bring Your Dog To Work Day (as seen on ITV’s This Morning and the Daily Mirror) is an annual nationwide event that raises money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs. On Friday 24th June 2016, businesses from across the UK will welcome their dog loving employees into the workplace, along with their loyal four-legged companions, all in the name of charity. It’s the second national event of its kind and is organised by HOWND®.
Even if you already take your dog to work, you, your businesses or any dog-loving employee can become an official sponsor by making a donation online or by text and uploading your company logo (businesses) or pooch selfie (individuals), on our website. All proceeds this year go to dog rescue charity All Dogs Matter, a charity that rehomes hundreds of dogs every year in London and Norfolk. Find out how to get involved below.
