Cash from Bring Your Dog To Work Day helps to rehome hundreds of rescue dogs

Following the popularity of last month’s Bring Your Dog To Work Day, the event’s official charity partner has announced how the initiative is helping kennel rescue dogs over the next three months.

Held on Friday 26 June, Bring Your Dog To Work Day raised money for All Dogs Matter, a charity that rehomes hundreds of rescues every year in London and Norfolk.

Both businesses and individuals across the UK have been making donations via the official website, which accepts donations all year around. Thousands of dog owners took part in the day itself and helped the #BringYourDogToWorkDay hashtag trend on Twitter in the UK by sharing their ‘pooch selfies’.

“We’re so thankful to everyone who has supported Bring Your Dog To Work Day and made a donation. The money raised so far will be used to kennel approximately 18 dogs over a period of approximately three months,” explains Ira Moss, general manager of All Dogs Matter.

“The funds will also go towards the rehabilitation, feeding, medical treatment, neutering, vaccinations and chipping of some of the 300 unwanted dogs we take in every year from private homes, kennels and death row pounds.”

Founded by HOWND, Bring Your Dog To Work Day was a tremendous success and featured in The Times, The Independent, Mirror, Metro, London Evening Standard, Mashable, Capital FM, BT and Yahoo.

There was even a pooch invasion on ITV’s Loose Women - where the programme’s presenters Andrea McLean, Nadia Sawalha and Jane Moore brought their dogs into work. Ricky Gervais also tweeted his support for the event.  

“We are so pleased with the outcome of Bring Your Dog To Work Day; the publicity and rate of participation exceeded our wildest expectations. Thank you so much to all the business sponsors and individuals who took part, your donations will help All Dogs Matter continue their fantastic work rescuing and rehoming unwanted and stray dogs,” explains Jo Amit, co-founder of dog grooming product company HOWND, the company behind the initiative.
