May is National Pet Month!
This makes Spring the perfect time to celebrate our animal buddies! And, to help make a meaningful difference in the lives of shelter pets, our employees organized donations for our local animal shelter in the Town of Hempstead, including:
- grooming supplies
- leashes and collars
- gift cards
- other items needed to bring a new pet into a home
We collected donations in each of our office locations and presented them to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter on May 22nd during a special event held at our home office in Garden City.
During this event, volunteers from the animal shelter talked about the benefits of animal adoption, the shelter's activities to benefit homeless animals, their pet therapy wellness center, volunteer opportunities, and pet health. But the best part of the event were the VIP guests who came to our office, two therapy dogs, Cooper & Dino!
Leading up to the event, our employees took part in a month-long journey of learning about each other’s animal companions with a daily photo of a ShelterPoint employee’s family pet featured on our internal site. Check out the gallery below for a peek at some of those furry family members!
