Calling SteelSeries a dog-friendly office might be an understatement. Last year, we had the idea of doing an activity to show off our appreciation for all the amazing dogs that still need homes. The Chinese Year of the Dog begins on February 16th, so we knew that now was the perfect time.
We partnered up with Chicago Canine Rescue, a local shelter that cares for dogs (and cats) and helps them get adopted, largely through the efforts of volunteers. They were happy to welcome us to photograph their adoptable dogs sporting some SteelSeries gear - it was easy to tell that they all just want the dogs they care for to find loving families, and we wanted to help show off some awesome adoptable dogs.
So on a rainy Monday in Chicago, we stocked up on dog food, treats, toys, and SteelSeries gear, and headed up to the shelter to photograph some dogs! You can find the final shots on our Year of the Dog page, but here's a behind-the-scenes look at our day at Chicago Canine Rescue:
Special thanks to Chicago Canine Rescue for working with us. If you're thinking of adopting a dog, definitely consider visiting here or your local shelter to see what kinds of amazing dogs need loving homes.
We also gave away some special prizes like a $500 donation to a local animal shelter, BarkBox subscriptions, SteelSeries headsets, and more!
