To celebrate the National Dog Day in Poland, Cushman & Wakefield and Colliers International have organized a charity for four-legged charges of the shelter in Pomiechówek. The joint campaign was held next to Metropolitan building in Warsaw on 1 July 2019 and comprised painting kennels and collection of toys, leashes, blankets, and dog food.
Poland has celebrated the National Dog Day since 2007 and the concept was formed by a journal “Przyjaciel Pies” and pies.pl users. The date of 1 July was chosen to mark the beginning of summer holidays and to draw attention to the problem of four-legged pets being abandoned or dumped at shelters.
“It goes without saying that dogs are a man’s best friend and spending time together with four-legged pets helps reduce stress and keep us active. As a real estate company, this year we decided to hand over a few doghouses to the Shelter in Pomiechówek for its canine charges. I hope that this campaign will become a permanent fixture on our calendar of events and other real estate companies will join us in the coming years,” said campaign initiator Iwona Laskowska, Junior Negotiator, Office Agency, Cushman & Wakefield.
