Rep. Grimm Encourages Staff to Participate in Take Your Dog to Work Day on June 22nd

BROOKLYN, NY – Today, Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R-NY) is encouraging his staff and others to participate in take your dog to work day, which falls on June 22nd.  First celebrated in 1999, TYDTW Day was created to celebrate the great companions dog make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and breed rescue clubs. The annual event asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption.

“Every day is Take Your Dog to Work Day in my office!” said Rep. Grimm. “Congress is a fast-paced, high-stress environment. Having Sebastian around helps lighten the mood for me and my staff and makes those long hours in the office a little more bearable.  Today, I’m encouraging my staff to bring their dogs to work today to celebrate the joy they bring us and to show our support for pet adoption.”

Rep. Grimm drives back and forth from New York to Washington, DC which makes it easy for his Yorkshire Terrier Sebastian to be with him in his DC and NY offices. Tomorrow, in Rep. Grimm’s Brooklyn office, a member of his staff will be bringing her Yorkie, Valentina, to the office.  In DC, a staffer will be brining in her new Cavalier King Charles, Monkey, who has become a regular playmate for Sebastian.
