As part of Adobe’s Season of Giving, employees at our European head office in Maidenhead, United Kingdom, were invited to bring their four-legged companions into the office to take part in the first Adobe “Bring your dog to work” day.
The day was planned to help raise funds for Dogs for the Disabled – a life-transforming charity that creates exceptional partnerships between people living with disability and specially trained assistance dogs. Through practical assistance, a dog can offer freedom and independence to children and adults with physical disabilities and children with autism.
Our breakout area was transformed into a dog friendly environment with an abundance of dog toys and treats. By 10:00am, the area was alive with the sound of small, medium and large pattering paws and playful characters. In the afternoon, the furry family members accompanied their best friends back to their desks where they got to see them at work.
Employees donated their spare change for this fantastic cause. All in all, we successfully raised £350 which will go a long way in helping this charity continue the work that they do.
