Take Your Dog to Work Day set for June 22

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Humane Society of Greater Savannah encourages pet owners to take their dogs to work as part of a nationwide celebration of canine friends.

The Humane Society is working with employers in the Coastal Empire and organizations on details and logistics for the day.

Take Your Dog To Work Day began in 1999 and grows each year with hundreds of companies participating nationwide, according to the Humane Society.

In addition to honoring the companionship of dogs, the event was created to promote pet adoptions from shelters like The Humane Society for Greater Savannah. www.takeyourdog.com
