How You and Your Pet Can Still Make a Difference Living in a Virtual World
At Wellness, we look forward to our Annual Global Day of Service, a day where each employee volunteers their time to give back to the community. In 2020, we made sure this day was no different.
Wellness is a proud sponsor of Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt Day.
Best Friends Animal Society is teaming up with local rescue groups, shelters and animal welfare organizations for a virtual community walk and fundraiser that benefits homeless dogs and cats across the country. Join us on Saturday, October 24th to virtually Strut Your Mutt via Best Friends Social Media channels. You can also join along for fun, engaging opportunities to connect and raise funds throughout the season and build a virtual no-kill community. Check out the virtual events leading up to October 24th such as Cat/Kitten Yoga on October 10th and Piggy Paradise on October 20th.
There’s never been a better time to help pets waiting for that lifesaving second chance.
Wellness is also proud to support the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Wellness selected the NAACP during a charitable drive in June and will continue to support the NAACP during our Global Day of Service – virtually.
JustMove is a virtual 5k app that allows race participants to run or walk at their own pace. The best part is you and your four-legged best friend can participate in your neighborhood, over a hike, or along the beach. It’s a perfect opportunity to get outside and have some fun while also donating to a cause. We are excited to be able to see our participants from all over the world on screen through the app.
There are many opportunities to still get involved and lend a helping hand while also keeping your social distance. We encourage you to reach out to your local shelters and charitable organizations to see how you may be able to provide any assistance. Sometimes, it’s as easy as Liking & Sharing their social accounts to raise awareness.
