Take Your Dog To Work Day

The employee handbook at Keiler advertising agency in Farmington includes a Puppy Policy allowing employees to bring their dogs to work.  But Friday was designated Take Your Dog (or dogs) To Work Day that included an owner/dog look-alike contest and a cookout at which the dogs (and humans) were served ice cream treats.  The day was the culmination of a month-long effort by employees to collect supplies and raise awareness for New Britain Shelter Friends, an all-volunteer non-profit that advocates for the well-being of dogs in the New Britain Animal Control facility.
