Piñones, Puerto Rico
Every year for our company offsite, we head to a tropical location to discuss the strategic objectives and goals for the upcoming year. This year we headed down to Puerto Rico, a country I had never been before and was excited to explore.
As part of our offsite, we try to incorporate service events to help local charities in need. This year I was asked to coordinate a volunteer event, so I worked with a local animal shelter, Amigos de los Animales, to put together a beach walk with some of their canine residents.
Although I did manage to get everyone lost on the drive there (oops!), eventually our group of volunteers found our way to the shelter. Everyone had an incredible experience playing with these sweet dogs on the beach. I am so happy organizations like ADLA exist to help rescue and rehabilitate dogs to give them a second chance at life, and I’m so glad we were able to do what we could to help.
