Here at Adopt-a-Pet.com, we not only take our pets to work, we basically work for them… they kind of run the show, keeping us inspired until every pet has a home.  And we can think of no company more pet-friendly than our good friends at Purina, where pets can not only come to work, they can also enjoy a break at the onsite dog park!

Another great example of a company that supports pet adoption is TargetCW. TargetCW, a payrolling company dedicated to customer service, is teaming up with Adopt-a-Pet.com to help homeless pets by offering a matching donation program to their employees, and by providing an Adopt-a-Pet.com pet search right on the company’s web site.  And… best of all, they’ve offered to reimburse their employees up to $100 for adoption fees!

Is your employer pet-friendly?  We’d love to hear all about it.  Email us at info@adoptapet.com and let us know what your company is doing to encourage pet adoption or to support healthy pets.
