Meet Maggie-May: The Office Dog!

We chat to the office workers who have fostered Maggie from PetRescue...

The pet-loving team at this Melbourne office have a new starter...

But unlike most workplaces, this new recruit isn't like your regular newbie - as she has four legs, a healthy appetite for sticking her head in bins and can beat Usain Bolt in a 100 meter sprint!

Rescue Greyhound Maggie-May has found a new home as a foster dog with these office workers - in a scheme created by our friends at PetRescue.

The Workplace Foster Care Program helps homeless pets by offering them workplaces around Australia in which they can be looked after, fed, walked and everything else a pet needs for a second chance at happiness. The rescue pets are fostered by the companies until they find new owners ready to adopt.

One happy pet this happened too was foster Greyhound "Fern", who had a wonderful stay with this team for 3 weeks until she found her home with a new adopted family.

Studies and polls have shown that a pet-friendly workplace can decrease stress, improve morale and productivity, reduce absenteeism and increase staff retention rates.

Welcoming a rescue pet into the workplace doesn't just help one pet - it can also raise awareness of fostering for all pets in need and freeing up space for rescue groups to save even more lives.

PetRescue supports more than 800 independent rescue groups throughout Australia, helping to find new homes for rescue animals.
