At Bookmans, customers are always welcome to bring their pets inside our stores (on a leash) and employees’ dogs can often be found roaming our corporate offices. We advocate for supporting local rescue organizations and volunteering for Arizona shelters. As a company of animal lovers, we celebrate Animal Welfare all year long. But each July, those lovable four-legged, feathery, scaly and fuzzy friends take center stage. This month, help us celebrate our favorite pets, whatever species they may be. We’re bringing the best and brightest local animal rescue organizations together to emphasize our commitment to critters of all shapes and sizes. Stop by your neighborhood Bookmans throughout July to check out local animal welfare groups and meet adoptable creatures great and small.
