Dog-friendly office? It’s a common thing now. But have you heard of one that is cat-friendly? can’t forget about cat lovers.
War Room’s CEO, Mike Tyler, has been fostering animals for over 15 years. With a big heart for animals and seeing the positive impact having pets in the workspace has, Mike had an idea: why not foster office kittens, too?
Ever since then, War Room has become a long-term partner with the BCSPCA and a few other kitten rescue organizations.
Some of the kittens come as fearless adventurers, some others take more time to come out of their shell. During their time at the War Room, they foster confidence with love and patience. It’s rewarding to see the kittens grow and become socialized sweethearts that love people and dogs alike.
