C&F Enterprises celebrates Take Your Dog to Work Day
C&F Enterprises celebrated Take Your Dog to Work Day with an entire week of festivities from June 17 to June 21, 2019. During the five days of what was dubbed Bring Your Dog to Work Week, C&F Enterprises employees brought their furry companions into the offices in Newport News, Virginia to participate in events, have a few friendly competitions, and support and the local animal shelter.
Bring Your Dog to Work Week kicked off on June 17, where dogs of all shapes and sizes came into work with their humans to help out with the daily responsibilities of the office and get everyone moving during the first daily lunchtime walk of the week.
On Tuesday, the dogs donned outfits and participated in a parade and costume contest where Rocket the dachshund fetched the grand prize. Toffee the bunny stopped by for a few pets and to provide some information on the community partnership between one of C&F Enterprises’ brands, Carol and Frank, and the Peninsula SPCA.
Wednesday brought another educational visit from the PSPCA, while Thursday featured a dog and owner look-alike contest where Megan and Nala stole the show with a striking resemblance. The celebrations culminate on Friday June 21, National Take Your Dog to Work Day, with a company picnic and dog trick contest.
C&F Enterprises participated in Bring Your Dog to Work Week with purpose. The occasion not only brought an infusion of passion and delight into the workspace, but also helped raise awareness and promote adoptions of pets both in the local community and across the country.
Carol and Frank kept track of all the festivities via Instagram and Facebook and continues to partner with the Peninsula SPCA, whose mission includes educating all on the humane treatment of animals and finding loving homes for pets in need.
