If you’re anything like me, you’ve definitely spent a lunch break or two perusing the pups available for adoption at your local shelter via the internet. And you’ve probably felt that pang that these dogs deserve more. You’re not alone in that feeling. In fact, the folks at Kitsap Humane Society understand it so well that they do a little something extra for their four-legged friends. Thanks to FoodBeast, we just about stopped everything to try and adopt one of their dogs because we cannot get over how cute the Puppucino Pals are on the shelter’s Instagram account.
Today’s Puppuccino Pal is Joey! This energetic boy is looking for a running companion. He would make a great adventurer.

The shelter’s Puppucino Pals all started when KHS volunteer Molly Clark began taking the shelter’s dogs for special trips to the local Starbucks for a puppucino treat. The dogs loved it, and the shelter has turned the trips into a weekly special event on their Instagram to showcase dogs that are available for adoption.

In case you’re not familiar, a puppucino is a cup full of whip cream for dogs. Lactose intolerance isn’t just a human thing so make sure you know what your dog can handle before you order one on your next trip to the coffee chain.
While Puppucinos aren’t an “official” thing that Starbucks has, that doesn’t mean you can’t ask your local barista for such a treat for your furry friends. As you can see from the pictures, the dogs at Kitsap Humane Society really enjoy the treat. They’re pretty lucky to have such great baristas in Kitsap where word has it they have a Shelter Dog of the Week to draw attention to all the worthy dogs in the area that need good homes.
Today’s Puppuccino Pal is Makena! This handsome boy is full of pep and love.

If you have a few minutes over lunch in the next few days, definitely jump over to Kitsap’s page and look at all the adorable dogs enjoying their Starbucks treat. And then maybe check out some volunteering opportunities at your local shelter because shelter dogs are some of the best dogs and they need friendly people in their lives until they find their forever homes.
