In the vibrant landscape of southern California, where the entertainment industry thrives, we had the immense pleasure of providing our unique brand of entertainment to Universal Music Group, the world's leading music-entertainment company, as they celebrated Employee Health & Wellness at their headquarters in Santa Monica. And guess what? We brought rescue puppies along!
Collaborating with companies that align with Puppy Love's core values is always inspiring. Working with Universal Music Group, an esteemed entertainment company, goes beyond just a job — it encompasses a comprehensive range of assistance and self-care programs for their employees. In their own words, Universal Music Group is "the place to be," where creativity is embraced, and positive vibes abound. Prioritizing the mental health and well-being of their employees, they found the perfect match in a Puppy Love experience.
From the moment we arrived, the synergy was palpable. While we're accustomed to people eagerly anticipating our arrival, witnessing an enthusiastic line forming 20 minutes ahead of time, stretching around the building, confirmed that we were among fellow puppy-lovers, ready to bask in the joy and mental well-being these furry companions offer.
Our adorable pups were an absolute delight! Eight siblings from the same litter, their playfulness and zest for life were utterly irresistible. They zoomed around their enclosure, happily gobbled treats, showered kisses and snuggled with anyone willing. The joy in the air was contagious. It's hard to fathom that just three months ago, these little bundles of happiness were born homeless on the streets of Mexico. Thanks to our incredible rescue partner, they were given a second chance, nursed back to health, and prepared for their fur-ever homes.
The entire Universal Music Group community was thrilled to learn that all eight pups were available for adoption. As part of Universal Music Group's employee benefits and well-being initiative, they generously covered the adoption fees for anyone interested in welcoming these precious pups into their families. Moreover, our rescue partner received numerous offers for fostering, a crucial contribution they urgently needed. Music filled the air, compliments of Universal Music Group's extraordinary talent roster, while ice cream was savored, and team bonding was evident in every corner.
As the event drew to a close (with nobody wanting to leave), we called for volunteers to help transport the pups and prepare them for their journey home. Amidst a flurry of photos, kisses, and hugs, heartfelt goodbyes were exchanged with the little ones.
We deeply appreciate Universal Music Group's commitment to developing leaders for the entertainment industry. Their employees are constantly honing their craft, refining their skills, and striving for personal growth to create a better tomorrow. Prioritizing great mental health practices and offering comprehensive benefits play a vital role in this development, and Puppy Love was thrilled to be part of this remarkable initiative.
"We HAVE to do this again!" exclaimed one of the Universal Music Group executives. The sentiment was echoed by everyone present.
