PETS WORK AT WORK™ Toolkit: Online

Pets are now part of over 90 million U.S. households, and more people than ever want to bring pets with them to work.

Pets are good for business, too. At work, they can boost morale, build a sense of community and get us up for regular walking breaks – all things that are good for our health. That’s why more employers are exploring pet-friendly workplace programs.

This toolkit provides how-to’s and best practices to help you make your workplace pet friendly.

Enjoy the many benefits that being pet friendly brings for your employees and your business!
