The Kitsap Humane Society in the Seattle area has decided to think outside the box when it comes to getting their residents adopted. They’ve started what they call the Puppuccino Pals program.
Shelter volunteer Molly Clark takes a pup to a local Starbucks every Tuesday for a tall cold one (OK, it’s actually just a small cup of whipped cream).
The Starbucks posts signs telling guests about the “Puppuccino Pup Of The Week.” If a puppy isn’t comfortable in that type of environment, they’ll still get the exposure and their cup of whipped cream, too.
“Should a dog not be suited for an outing due to some type of limitation, Molly will take another dog on an outing, and bring a Puppuccino back,” Kimberly Cizek Allen, the shelter events and outreach assistant coordinator, told The Dodo.
Not only do the dogs get a break from shelter life and a creamy snack, they get exposure to an audience that might not otherwise visit a shelter. Learn more about this sweet program in the video below:
