(WIAT) — It was quite a fun day for many dog lovers on Friday, otherwise known as national Take Your Dog To Work Day.
Employees at Big Communications in Birmingham took full advantage of the opportunity to bring their dogs to the office.
The day was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make.
It also encourages animal adoptions from Humane Societies and animal shelters.
Big Communications held different dog-friendly events throughout the afternoon.
Proceeds from the events benefited the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.
The first Take Your Dog To Work Day was first celebrated in 1999.
