Shelter Takes Adoptable Dogs Out For ‘Puppucinos’ To Help Find Them Homes

For dogs cooped up at a shelter, having a chance to get away, even if it’s just for a short time, is a great way for the animals to decompress and have some fun. The staff and volunteers at Washington’s Kitsap Humane Society try and give each of their tenants some one-on-one attention. Recently, they came up with an idea that not only gives the dogs a fun outing, it helps raise their profile and their chances of getting adopted!

“One fun and unique way dogs get a break from the shelter is a ride in the car with KHS volunteer Molly Clark to get a Starbucks Puppuccino (a small cup filled with whipped cream),” the shelter explains on their website. Clark snaps an adorable picture of the dogs lapping up their yummy whipped cream treat and then the photo is posted up on social media for potential adopters to see.

Once you get a look at these adorable “Puppucinno Pals” you’ll be wanting to take them home and treat them to a Starbucks treat yourself! Check out some of the dogs below (and take note, some of these cuties are still up for adoption!)
