‘Dog Days’ Yields Pet Adoptions, Donations, Good Feelings

CopperPoint hosted its third annual Dog Days of Summer event for employees to cure their summertime blues by cuddling with adoptable dogs.

The event also raises donations, such as food, treats and household goods, that Arizona’s animal shelters rely on.

During the slower summer months, these donations are needed more than ever. Dog and cat pet food, bags of treats, clean towels and blankets are the most widely needed items.

CopperPoint’s partner in the Dog Days event is the Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL), Arizona’s oldest and largest no-kill shelter. AAWL brought adoptable dogs and cats to CopperPoint’s office in the hopes these animals would find a loving family to call home.

Thanks to the generosity of CopperPoint employees, the Dog Days event resulted in three animal adoptions, more than 50 pounds of food plus a variety of pet supplies donated to the shelter. Also, $868 in adoption fees/donations were raised and CopperPoint is matching that amount, bringing total cash amount to $1,736.

Hosting an adoption event starts with a phone call to your nearest animal shelter. And to support the health, wellness, emotional and behavior needs of animals in the care of an Arizona shelter, check out the wish lists are posted on their websites.
