Niagara University is participating in Pet Sitters International’s “Take Your Dog To Work Day” on June 20 – electronically.

University students, alumni and employees are invited to tweet photos of their pets to @NiagaraUniv, using the #PurplePet hashtag.  The pet that receives the most combined retweets and favorites will earn its owner a gift certificate to Blackwinds Pet Supplies in Niagara Falls.


On Wednesday, Niagara University will host a hot dog fundraiser to benefit Heart of Niagara Animal Rescue.  Please stop by for lunch and talk to Heart of Niagara.  This event will take place from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. outside Gallagher Center.  The cost is $3 for hot dog, chips and drink.  A prize raffle will be held as well, with all proceeds benefiting this organization.
