“In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.”
Those words ring so true! Our local pet shelters know this too, and they work hard towards making pet ownership a reality for anyone who wants to rescue a pet. The Happy Tails team building workshop is one way we can all help out.
What is Happy Tails?
This is one of our newest workshops, created by customer requests that came pouring in…“we want a workshop that benefits our four-legged friends!”.
This workshop has your team assembling and donating pet adoption care packages to your local pet shelters. These packages make it possible for more people to afford the stiff up-front cost of adopting a pet.
Help defray the costs of rescuing a pet from the local shelter.
All across the country, pet shelters (especially the “no kill shelters”) are over-crowded and usually under-funded. The one thing which can relieve the pressure of taking care of so many pets is to have more people adopting them.
Believe it or not, more people do want to adopt pets…but they can’t. It’s not that they don’t have a home for a new pet. It’s not that they can’t afford to feed a new pet…it’s those up-front costs that add up so quickly.
New pet adoptions mean the new pet owner has to come up with lots of new “pet gear’ all at once…pet collars, leashes, food bowls, chew toys, etc.
That’s where your group and Happy Tails comes in. We’ll be assembling pet care packages full of those very same items that are so badly needed when new pet owners adopt.
By facilitating more new adoptions, you’re not only helping out the people who are taking shelter pets into their homes forever, but you’re also helping the shelters. Every time they place a pet in a new home, they’ve succeeded in their mission!
Teamwork leads to happy tails.
Our unique workshop design means that not only does your group get to bond while doing something good for the community…they also build important teamwork skills while they’re at it!
Each hands-on activity tests and improves teamwork skills such as:
- big picture thinking
- working with limited resources
- appreciating diversity
Groups “earn” items for their pet care packages by solving puzzles and overcoming obstacles through good teamwork. They learn about themselves and each other in the process.
As you can see, there’s a lot going on in each Happy Tails team building workshop!
Like our famous bicycle building charity workshops, Happy Tails charity workshop serves a dual function. Teams get stronger, and so do community connections. Everyone wins with a charity workshop, and the benefits last far beyond the day of the event.
If you’d like to learn more about our newest charity workshop, just give us a call. You can even tell us what pet shelter you’d like to work with, and we’ll work out the details for the day of your event.
