Caravan of Cuddles: workplace visits from our four-legged friends this holiday season!

Looking for a fun experience for your office and colleagues? Want to save lives with the ARLGP? Schedule our Caravan of Cuddles and an envoy of puppies will visit your business in celebration of the holiday season to spread some (furry) love.

Guaranteed to bring happiness and fun! Each Caravan of Cuddles visit includes two ARLGP staff/volunteers and a group of 3-6 puppies or kittens. Visits can be scheduled for 30-minute or 1-hour intervals.

Why join the Caravan of Cuddles? We love animals (isn’t that obvious), and spreading the joy of our furry friends makes us very happy ARLGP-ers. Plus, your scheduling of a cuddle session supports our life-saving work and the 6,000 pets that depend on our services every year. We think it’s a win-win for all.

30-minute visit: $250
1-hour visit: $500
Dates available (more options this year!): Tuesday, December 10th through Friday, December 13th AND Tuesday, December 17th through Friday, December 20th.

How to schedule your visit

Complete our online request form with your desired visit day and time. Amount of visits are limited due to staffing, so our online request form will be disabled when spots are full. Your businesses will be notified within 7 business days of form submission of your visit details. Business requests we are not able to accommodate will receive a refund of their payment. Please note: businesses must have a suitable indoor room with doors for visits to take place.


How many animals will you bring? The number of animals will depend on the quantity we have in the shelter at the time of the event. We expect to bring 3-6 puppies or 3-6 kittens to each location.

Can I adopt a kitten or puppy that I meet during a visit at my business? The kittens and puppies visiting your workplace will likely be visiting other offices the same week. We anticipate most of our Caravan of Cuddles animals to be available for adoption the week of Christmas. We encourage anyone interested in adopting to check our website for the most up-to-date availability. Holds and adoptions will not be available during the visits.

I want to schedule a cuddle visit as a surprise to my office, can that be arranged? Absolutely! In fact, most of our cuddle visits are surprises to the office and teams we visit. We guarantee many happy employees once we arrive (which likely leads to lots of productive employees, too!).
