When eLogic Learning employees returned from lunch on Monday, they were greeted by some fluffy friends – a hoard of adoptable dogs and cats from SPCA Tampa Bay via their Whiskers at Work program.
For a small donation, SPCA Tampa Bay will bring a group of dogs and cats (puppies and kittens aren’t guaranteed, though eLogic was lucky enough to have some visit!), and possibly even some more exotic animals like rabbits and guinea pigs, depending on shelter availability. The visit normally lasts about 90 minutes and is a lot of fun for all!
Amongst the animals visiting eLogic were four puppies: Charlie, Schroder, Winston, and Schmidt; and three eight-week old kittens. SPCA Tampa Bay brought toys for the furry friends to play with and gave eLogic employees a chance to get away from their desks, provide some cuddles for these sweet dogs and cats, and come together around the team’s shared love of animals. A couple of employees are even considering adopting some of the animals that visited!
The donation to SPCA Tampa Bay isn’t the first time eLogic has donated to this type of organization. In fact, every time eLogic secures a new client or sale, they allow an employee or client to choose a charity for eLogic to donate to. Over the years, eLogic has donated thousands of dollars to animal shelters and other non-profits benefiting animals.
“Doesn’t everybody love cats and dogs? Especially kittens and puppies? We certainly do! The SPCA shelters these animals and works hard to ensure they’re adopted into good homes. eLogic believes in this worthy cause and will continue to support and aid them in their mission to transform the lives of animals,” says Mark Anderson, CEO. “Here at eLogic, we have some great people working for us and we believe people should enjoy what they do and feel good about their purpose, both in their work life and personal life. Whiskers at Work was a great way for us to demonstrate to our staff that we care and that what we’re doing makes the world a little bit better.”
