We have always been dedicated to making communities stronger. Our business mission is to create success stories by connecting the right people with businesses, where both can thrive. In our charitable work, we make much more personal connections, supporting organizations that rescue and treat animals. Our larger goal: to eventually connect these wonderful animals with families for adoption, changing all of their lives for the better.

Anita A. Vitullo, our founder and president, is a tireless crusader and advocate for animals in our region, donating time, money and resources to shelters, adoptive agencies, spay and neuter programs, and humane societies year round. In addition to her ongoing support for many of these organizations, she wanted to establish a strong, lasting legacy for our less fortunate companions, one that will outlive her, and last for many years to come.

In 2005, The Staffworks Fund was established at the Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties. The sole mission of the Staffworks Fund is supporting nonprofit organizations that care for at-risk animals. Today, the Staffworks Fund has assets of over $15 million. 100% of Staffworks Inc. profits provides financial support for the Staffworks Fund.
