PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Friday is National Take Your Dog to Work Day. There is an effort in Northern Liberties where a bank is going the extra mile and raising money for an animal welfare group.
“My dog Muffin is a black Scottie.”
Suzanne Mooney is the vice president and director of retail banking and marketing at Hyperion Bank at 2nd Street and Girard Avenue. Muffin will be at the bank on Friday for Take Your Dog to Work Day.
It’s the 5th year that employees bring their pooches and baked goods to sell in order raise money for the Philadelphia Animal Welfare society or PAWS.
“I’m making Jewish apple cake and when I did the memo to the staff I said, ‘I will take advanced orders and I will bake as many as you want to buy all the proceeds go to the dogs,’” said Mooney.
Melissa Levy is the executive director of PAWS.
“And we will be there, PAWS will be there with adoptable dogs and with information on how people can adopt or foster or get involved in another way.”
She also says they’ll be letting people know about a promotion going on this month where you can name your own adoption fee for dogs or cats you adopt through PAWS.
