L'Oreal R&D Health and Safety Day

Not only were we asked to come to the 5th Annual L'Oreal R&D Health and Safety Day to promote microchipping of pets, foster dog Pumpkin was also invited. She played an important role in demonstrating how microchips are scanned. But aside from that, Pumpkin was the L'Oreal employee morale booster of the day. Always ready to meet and greet, Pumpkin dazzled anyone who came near. If any of the L'Oreal employees were having a bad day, you wouldn't know it to see them oohing, aahing and laughing with Pumpkin!

Fundraiser: Father's Day Gift Wrapping at Barnes and Noble

Barnes & Noble offers a great community service opportunity for non-profit organizations. Prior to holidays or special occasions charities can sign up to man the gift wrapping table at a Barnes & Noble store. Gift wrapping for customers is free, but customers may leave a donation if they so desire. It is a great way for charities to make some money while saving people the tedious chore of wrapping gifts.

Companion Critters wrapped books at the Barnes & Noble store in Clark, NJ from 9 am - 3 pm on Father's Day 2009. Foster dog Pumpkin came along to help. Pumpkins' schmoozing abilities apparently far outweighed our gift wrapping abilities as Pumpkin earned more in the donation jar for giving out kisses than we did for wrapping! Thank you Pumpkin, thank you Barnes & Noble customers and thank you Barnes & Noble for helping us raise $163.17!
