The Control Group participated in one of our favorite events...Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 7th Annual Puppy Love 5K. The run took place on March 15th at Lake Poway where hundreds of runners, walkers, and dogs of all shapes and sizes came out to support this special organization. Being a dog-friendly company, Helen Woodward Animal Center has become an important partner for us.
The race was the main event, but there was a fun activity for everyone. There was a Wagging Wellness Village which featured dog-friendly vendors, food, games and activities for kids, canine costume contests, dog agility/training and awards.
The purpose of the run/walk is to help raise awareness for the thousands of animals that are every year and to find good homes for the ones that are still at the center waiting to be adopted. Donations and events like this also ensure that the important programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center continue long into the future. It was also a healthy and fun way to spend time with our pups and friends.
Besides participating in the Puppy Love 5k again, TCG has also participated in some of HWAC’s other events such as the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, Spring Fling Gala and Corks For Critters. We are also in the process of helping Helen Woodward revamp their website. Because of this partnership, we have added another pretty cool employee perk — TCG will pay the pet adoption fees for any TCG employee who adopts a pet through Helen Woodward! This is a chance to give our furry friends a furever home. Thanks to all the TCG team members who participated! To see pups at the shelter that are currently up for adoption, click here.
