To Our Wonderful Pet Families,
First of all, we want to express our gratitude for the support we have received in the last few days. Since closing our doors, we have heard from a number of you asking how you can help support our staff and sharing your hopes for a speedy reopen. Thank you for your unwavering support.
With so much scary and upsetting news in our feeds and inboxes-- we're ready for some JOY. See below for a few ways to brighten your day.
1. We miss our furry friends! Email a picture of your pup #stayinghome or #socialdistancing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bonus points for a themed costume. We will share all of your pics on our blog and social media accounts!
2. Support our staff through club credit and discounted package purchases. We have 14 incredible members of our team. They're hard working, honest, kind and passionate about caring for your pups. They support families, contribute to our community and work hard together to provide exceptional care to your dogs. Some are in school, some are parents, some are retired, some have been with ADC for more than one decade. All are in need.If you're able to purchase credit and packages for future daycare days and stays, 100% of the proceeds collected throughout this crisis goes directly to our staff. We can't thank you enough for your support.
In order to take part in this giving opportunity, please take a look at our blog for directions. You'll need an online customer account (it's simple to set up!).
3.Watch this. Slow motion dogs = JOY!
4. Do things for other people. My mother (a doctor currently working 16 hour days) always told me that when I am feeling anxious, sad, hurt or scared that I should find a way to help others instead of dwelling on my own condition. That's why I'm working through this crisis by supporting our team, calling my 90 year-old grandparents to say hello, writing kind emails to my family and friends to let them know how much I love them and cleaning up trash during my socially distant walks outside.
Feel free to share on our social media accounts how you are getting through these difficult times. Let's support each other!
Sending you love, light and digital puppy belly rubs,
