“Boulder’s Bungalow” Named After Agency’s Beloved Canine Staff Member

Boulder (the resident canine at Meers Advertising) sits in front of the new suite of rooms named after her at Great Plains SPCA.

We were incredibly touched by this thoughtful gesture and are very happy for our friends at Great Plains SPCA on the opening of this amazing facility.

As part of Great Plains SPCA opening their new Pet Adoption Center, they surprised Meers Advertising at a preview event on December 12, with a special thank you for the recent work the agency has created and produced for the animal shelter and veterinary care center. A suite and/or playroom designed for one or more dogs (e.g., a place where a mother dog and her puppies could be together) was named “Boulder’s Bungalow” in honor of the agency’s beloved canine staff member, Boulder Meers.

The agency launched a spay and neuter campaign in October of this year, and a new pet adoption campaign recently commenced – both campaigns consist of print, TV commercials and guerrilla marketing tactics. “Great Plains is very grateful to Meers Advertising for generously donating time and talent for this incredible creative work as well as all of the strategic planning, market research, media planning and buying that has supported it,” said Courtney Thomas, President & CEO of Great Plains SPCA. “This is just a small way of our organization saying thanks to the Meers team.”

Known for her alert office protection and unwavering staff affection, Boulder is particularly adept at charming clients and maintaining a harmonious workplace atmosphere at Meers Advertising. Though she can’t wear hats (without some assistance), Boulder is able to simultaneously juggle and serve multiple functions – including human resources, custodial and therapy. She is a five year-old Golden Retriever, loves to play with her toys at home and work, and is fond of all kinds of treats. Boulder is owned by the agency’s President/CEO, Sam Meers, and his wife, Julie Nelson-Meers, and attended the preview opening of the Pet Adoption Center along with Sam, Julie and several Meers’ team members.

“We couldn’t have been more surprised and honored with this recognition via Boulder for the work the Meers team has done for Great Plains SPCA,” said Sam Meers. “We were incredibly touched by this thoughtful gesture and are very happy for our friends at Great Plains SPCA on the opening of this amazing facility.”
