MEET BROOKLYN HARVEY
Empire Industries now has a mascot! Meet our newest addition Brooklyn Harvey. During Hurricane Harvey, many dogs and cats found themselves without a home. Many still are living on the street or in a shelter. Here is one story with a happy ending.
When Hurricane Harvey hit, Empire Industries had a “all hands on deck” approach. Anyone working for Empire that could get to any vacant property did so. It did not matter if you were in the marketing department, accounting department or the owner of the company. Everyone did whatever was necessary to get to put eyes on our clients properties.
The co-founder of the company, Pete Neubig, was walking a property in Pasadena. As he was coming out of the backyard, a pit bull approached him. Startled and nervous at first, Pete went into the backyard and closed the gate. However, once he was able to assess the situation he realized the dog was severely injured and was looking for help. Against his better judgement, pete walked out of the backyard, bent down and offered the dog his fist. Pete thought to himself – This could go really wrong. This pit bull can eat off one of my fingers and then everyone would call me Pete Knubby instead of Pete Neubig. The dog had the friendliest eyes and licked Pete’s hand all the while wagging his tail.
As Pete tried to assess the situation he realized the dog had no tag, a makeshift collar from some rope, had not been neutered or chipped. Pete looked around for anyone on the street that could give him some info. After calling a friend who rescues dogs it became clear that Pete would have to bring the dog home and foster him.
Before Pete made it home, the dog had a new name….Brooklyn. Pete and his wife Felicia already had a cat named Bronxy so it made sense to call him Brooklyn.
Luckily for both Pete and Brooklyn, Felicia and Bronxy accepted Brooklyn into their home and what was going to be a few days stay became a fixture in the family.
Brooklyn is now a healthy puppy of 43 lbs and is a pit bull and terrier mix. Pete brings Brooklyn to the office where he gets to interact with the staff and sometimes causes havoc!
We all love Brooklyn. He is our little piece of Harvey.
