Naperville Area Humane Society’s Holidog Express

The Naperville Area Humane Society invites you to hop on the Holidog Express.

For the first time, the shelter is offering special deliveries to local businesses to help make the holidays merry and bright.

Therapy dogs will visit offices around town on Friday December 9 and 16. Each stop lasts 30 minutes to one hour, for a donation of $250 or $500 to the humane society.

“Around the holidays, to show your employees you appreciate them, it would be a nice way to boost morale, make them a little bit happy especially because it falls on a Friday. Everybody’s a little stressed out about work and holidays to begin with, but having a dog come in, just taking a break from your job, even if it is only for a half an hour, it’s nice to just pet a dog and relax,” said Humane Education Manager with the Naperville Area Humane Society, Kristen Funk.

100 percent of the money coming in through the Holidog Express directly benefits all the animals at the shelter.
