Sure, a warm welcome from your local barista is nice and all, but try being greeted by a handful of overly eager, ultra-adorable pups. Amp up your afternoon coffee fix with a stop at The Dog Cafe, the first adoption-cum-coffee-joint of its kind. Meet some friendly canines looking for a home while sipping on brews from Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. (high five for the brand choice). Adopt, foster, or just hang out with some furry friends. Either way, you're in good company.

Love dogs?  Love being surrounded by dogs?  You'll love the dog cafe!  For $15, you get a drink of your choice (ranging from lemonade to coffee and tea), and an hour in a room full of puppers.  Not to mention, ALL PUPPERS ARE UP FOR ADOPTION!  Looking for a furever friend?  Be sure to book here at least once, if not weekly--all the dogs rotate out since people foster and adopt them.  All are rescues and range from months old crazy puppies to calm seniors.  Some just want cuddles, some just want to play--you'll find dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds, and temperaments.  Staff know the dogs' personalities well and will introduce the dogs at the beginning of each session.  They also help facilitate puppy time--if you look particularly dog-less, you might find a doggo being dropped into your arms.

Bonus--if you're LA local and looking to volunteer with animals, they are always looking for help, and it's almost too easy to sign up.  For those without enough time/space/money to dedicate to one animal, help the Dog Cafe out by dedicating a little bit of time to a whole lot of pups in need of additional exercise and socialization outside of what the indoor doge bonanza offers.

Make a reservation online (they don't take them over the phone), then just show up.  Parking is easy--there's a parking lot below the strip mall it's located in (although the strip mall is in LA's worst intersection).  There are two storefronts due to LA zoning laws; check in on the right hand cafe side, and you'll get instructions from there.
