Work Paws Playdates

The Work Paws Playdates Program allows corporate partners to provide relief and interactive fun for their employees. Participating employees are encouraged to take a few minutes out of their day to leave their workstations and interact with the animals. Employees can walk a dog, play fetch, pet a puppy, or cuddle a kitten.
Welcoming Operation Kindness animals into your workplace helps your staff stay healthy and practice good habits, such as taking breaks. On a deeper level, pets help alleviate some of the stress associated with work life. They also promote team bonding, laughter, and a positive work environment.
Additionally, there is a huge benefit to the animals currently in our care. Playdates give them a chance to socialize and reveal more about their personalities which helps them get adopted.

The playdate includes:

  • Operation Kindness brings social dogs or puppies and/or kittens to your workplace.
  • Sessions are 2 hours.
  • Operation Kindness provides materials needed to set up a clean environment.
  • The suggested donation for a Work Paws Playdate is $3,500. Of which $3,000 is tax-deductible. Contact our team if you would like to discuss available options.
