Take Your Dog To Work Day


Every year workers across America have had the opportunity to take their children to work, but now many workplaces are embracing Take Your Dog To Work Day, which falls on June 25!

If you are lucky enough to be able to take your pet to work with you this summer, remember these few tips to make sure your dog doesn’t become an office distraction. Bring a leash to restrain your pet is necessary and to take it outside for bathroom breaks. It’s also important to only bring your pet if it is well trained and gets along well with other animals, otherwise it most likely won’t be invited back.

Bring along a few treats and dog toys to occupy your pet while you work. It may also be helpful to bring along some puppy pads in case of an accident. You should also send an email to co-workers to let them know in advance in case some people are allergic to your pet.

With these tips, we’re sure Take Your Dog To Work Day will be a fun experience for you, your dog and your co-workers! If you are able to take your pet to work, send us a photo- we’d love to see you and your pets at work.

June Is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month


Many of the television ads that promote pet adoption only feature dogs. While we really do want dogs to be adopted into loving homes, we want cats to find great homes too!

According to the American Humane Society about 4 million cats end up in shelters every year, including thousands born every spring and summer during “kitten season.” This summer we want to help make sure they all go to loving homes, so if you plan to adopt a cat, try to adopt a shelter cat.

Due to kitten season, summer is the perfect (and very important) time to adopt a new cat, because June Is Adopt A Shelter Car Month! At your local pet shelter, you will find many cats who would love to go home with you from baby kittens to mature cats.

Before you bring your cat home, be sure you stock up on all your essential cat products to properly care for your newest family addition. MEDNET has everything you need for a cat from beds, litter boxes, carriers, toys and even catnip, so you cat will feel right at home.

Did you adopt a cat this month? Send us a photo of your new friend and you might be featured on our blog!
