Caravan of Cuddles

Caravan of Cuddles: workplace visits from our four-legged friends

Looking for a fun experience for your office and colleagues? Or, planning a bridal shower with a puppy-loving bride? Want to save lives with the ARLGP? Schedule our Caravan of Cuddles and an envoy of kittens or puppies will visit your workplace or activity location with lots of snuggles and fun.

Open to companies in the Greater Portland area, visits can be scheduled Monday-Friday. Each Caravan of Cuddles visit will include two ARLGP staff or volunteers with a group of 3-6 puppies or kittens (your choice). 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 nearly 6,000 pets that depend on our services every year. We think it’s a win-win for all.


To begin the process of scheduling your cuddle session, please complete the form below at least 30 days prior to your desired cuddle date. Because we do not have puppies and kittens at the ARLGP every day, the more advance timing we have, the better the chance we can secure your visit with your desired group of cuddlers. Please allow up to 5 business days for our team to get back to you.

Cuddle fees: 30-minute visit: $250, 1-hour visit: $500


How many kittens and puppies will you bring? The number of kittens and puppies 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 your visit session.

Can I adopt a kitten or puppy that I meet during a visit at my business? Animals that participate in cuddle visits are not yet available for adoption. However, we can do our best to let you know during your visit the anticipated adoption date of the animals we have with us. The best way to keep track of one of your cuddlers is to check our website for 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!).
