Puppy Love is honored to partner with Family House in San Francisco, CA. We provide visits from puppies to seriously ill children and their families. Families residing at Children’s House have children who are undergoing treatment for a variety of serious illnesses at UCSF Benioff’s Children’s Hospital.

Research shows that children in these circumstances benefit from moments of normalcy and fun. Snuggling with puppies lifts the spirits of patients and their families.

Puppy Love brings puppies to these families for snuggles, belly scratches and bonding time. We partner with Canine Companions and local animal rescues to provide the warmest, kindest dogs at these events.

Puppy Love has developed a program that enables companies to host these heart warming Puppy Experiences. We provide a variety of hands-on opportunities for your employees to give back. Puppy Love is pleased to offer benefits to companies that underwrite these Family House events. 

Puppy Love donates 20% of all proceeds from events to our local rescue partners

Canine Companions for Independence® is the largest national non-profit provider of assistance dogs to people with disabilities. Canine Companions assistance dogs perform over 40 commands, including picking up dropped items and delivering them, opening and closing doors and drawers, and turning on and off lights. Recently, some Puppy Love events have included adorable Canine Companions puppies! These lovable and well-behaved pups are training to become Canine Companions assistance dogs, working with volunteer puppy raisers for 16-18 months on basic commands, socialization and behaving appropriately in public. Puppy Love donates a portion of their proceeds to Canine Companions to continue their mission of providing expertly trained assistance dogs and lifetime support to people with disabilities completely free of charge.
