Hey T-REXers,

We're teaming up with Purina to bring you a very special virtual “yappy” hour this Wednesday! Not only will we all get to hang out with our 4-legged frandz, but T-REXers and their puppers will also be joined by Senior Scientist and Animal Behaviorist Dr. Annie Valuska and Pet Enrichment Specialist Alex Johnson from Purina. Our new normal doesn't only affect us humans. From increasing indoor activities to reducing separation anxiety, join us Wednesday to get expert tips and best practices for managing work-at-home transitions with your fluffy loved ones.

With the City of St. Louis allowing for some easement starting today (May 18th), please be aware that there may be more people entering T-REX private offices even though coworking remains closed.
