Santa Rosa County Animal Services is launching a new dog-to-work program. Santa Rosa County dog-accepting businesses are encouraged to participate by registering a representative to greet and allow the dog to work with them during the day. On average, 1,000 animals that enter the shelter each year need a foster family before they are ready for adoption.

To participate in the program, companies will need to choose a representative as their point of contact and complete the online hosting request. This representative will also be responsible for keeping the dog home when he is not at work and will receive all supplies for the dog such as food, carrier, kennel, etc.

Rally Resource Room to Support Families at Children’s Hospital

With a grant from IMPACT 100 Pensacola Bay Area, the Rallye Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research will be able to create a Rallye resource room to serve families of pediatric cancer patients at the Children’s Hospital of the Studer family at Ascension Sacred Heart.

Children with cancer are often admitted to the hospital for weeks or even months at a time. Extended hospital stays can create stress for parents who must continue to work, maintain income and health insurance while trying to stay close to their child and health care providers.

The grant of $ 101,820 will support Rally’s project to transform the children’s hospital space into a business center-style room that will provide a welcoming workspace for parents to work, pay bills, consult emails, taking calls and other daily office needs without leaving the hospital while their child is in treatment. The workstations will include desks, computers, printers, necessary supplies and a relaxation area to help parents balance their work and the care of their child.
