“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language”
-Martin Buber, Philosopher
The whole city benefits when Portland’s pets are cared for. We have our local shelters to thank for that. Why not make your next team building event something to be proud of, where you can help out Portland’s animal shelters while you strengthen your team?
Help a Portland Pet Shelter With Pet Adoptions
It’s all made possible by Happy Tails, a charity team building workshop whose mission is to help one of Portland’s shelters with pet adoption services. How do we do that? This workshop has participants assembling pet care packages for new pet owners, who find the upfront cost of adoption to be prohibitive.
In fact, one of the main obstacles facing pet adoption is the cost of incidentals like food bowls, collars, and chew toys. By donating these items in care packages, your team can help decrease the sad statistic that more than half of pets who enter shelters must be euthanized. There’s simply no room, not enough funding, and not enough adoptive homes to take them all in.
How Does This Build Teams, You Ask?
We’re glad you asked! Our crack team of workshop developers know how to harness all that unifying energy that comes from a group working together for a common cause. That energy gets focused on team building. Participants will learn about the following important teamwork concepts:
- everyone has different communication styles
- one is not better than the rest- they’re simply all different
- if we learn these styles and how to interact with them, communication is vastly improved
We use time-tested techniques and an interactive style so everyone gets involved and feels engages in all the activities.
Customizing a Portland Happy Tails Workshop for You is Easy- Just Ask!
We normally partner with a Portland pet shelter for the charitable donation from a Happy Tails team building workshop. However, if you have a local organization (or even a national one) you’d prefer to work with, just say the word and we’ll make arrangements with them. Some of our clients choose to donate to the ASPCA.
The choice is yours!
You can also choose how long you’d like your workshop to be…anywhere from 2.5 hours to a full day. Give us a call or fill out the handy quote form on this page for details.
