The growing popularity of dog ownership among Invosys workers prompted the Manchester-based firm to adopt animal organisation the PDSA as its charity for 2017.
The charity treats the pets of those experiencing economic and social hardship at 50-plus pet hospitals and over 380 practices.
Dan Fish, HR Director for Invosys and co-ordinator of the charity efforts, said: "It's a key part of our ethos to give something back to the wider community, so we pledge to support a charity each year with staff dedicating their own time to raise funds. PDSA seemed fitting for 2017 with many of the team being big animal lovers.
"The PDSA is a fantastic charity which helps people and pets stay together, even when they are facing financial difficulties."
