Dog café in LA – level 3
Coffee Cups and Rescue Pups--people in California are being given the chance to brighten up their morning coffee run. The dog café in Los Angeles lets customers couple their cappuccinos with a bit of pooch playtime, all with animals who are looking for a new home.
" I love dogs and I feel like getting to interact with like potentially dogs that are available for adoption is a really good idea because people actually get to mingle with them while enjoying their coffee and it could be a casual thing that people can come out to do on a daily basis, if they want!"
Every single one of the dogs has been rescued from shelters. Now they are being rehabilitated by café owner Sarah Wolfgang and her staff.
"My hope is to obviously decrease the amount of dogs that are being euthanised at shelters all across LA ,initially, and then hopefully we can spread out new businesses like this one, will spread out, and be able to do the same thing in their own cities to decrease the rate of euthanasia."
A noble cause and one that people seem to have responded to. Because of high demand, there's 10-dollar price tag for one cup of joe and 55 minutes with the dogs. We smell a winner.
Difficult words: pooch (a dog), mingle (to spend time), shelter (a place where people put homeless dogs), joe (coffee).
