Community Story

Rating: 5

My name is Mike Goldfinger and I am the business Operations Manager of iHeartRadio.

I knew National Puppy Day was coming up and I wanted to do something special and surprise my coworkers. Foster Dogs Inc. came recommend by a co-worker, and I've heard that they've done similar office visits for companies, so I reached out and set something up. They arrived EARLY (meaning MORE puppy time!) with five of the most adorable puppies, varying in breed and size. Excitement and confusion arose in equal measure as it timed perfectly with our announcement of 100 million registered listeners of the iHeartRadio App. Instantaneously everyone's inner child came out! It was honestly the most excitement I've seen from the team. Everyone was surprised about how well behaved the puppies were. The Foster Dog's staff were all extremely friendly and helpful during the event; taking pictures for everyone and their favorite puppy.

For dog adoption and office event services I would definitely recommend Foster Dogs Inc. as the dogs we're extremely lovable and well behaved, and the staff have a genuine love for what they do. I cannot wait to work with Foster Dogs Inc again!!!
