Two Paws Up
For our Founder, Sabrina Freed

Sabrina Freed founded Puppy Love™ in 2016. Sabrina’s deep love of animals and their well-being combined with her 20-years of experience with large-scale corporate events created a health and wellness outlet for corporate Americas EAP. This perfect blend of passion and skill facilitated her creation of stunningly unique and memorable corporate wellness experiences – with rescue puppies!

Ironically, Sabrina was terrified of animals until she was a young adult. Overcoming this fear, she realized the immense calm and joy these creatures brought to her life. Ever since, she has been a passionate advocate for all animals – especially dogs.

From her event experience, Sabrina recognized how employees would benefit from puppy interaction in their workplace – as would their employers (i.e., worker retention, efficiency, and wellness). Additionally, she wanted to introduce adoptable rescue puppies to a wider audience and give back to her rescue partners. Sabrina’s proud of the fact that Puppy Love™ gives 20% of all proceeds back into the local animal community.

Sabrina’s unique and revolutionary concept of Puppy Love™ company came to fruition in San Francisco and now provides services throughout Northern and Southern California. Puppy Love™ is expanding rapidly and hopes to bring their unique brand of joy to event collaborations across the country!

“Animal lovers are a special breed of humans, generous of spirit, full of empathy, perhaps a little prone to sentimentality, and with hearts as big as a cloudless sky.”

Adoption Story

In the early days of Puppy Love™, Sabrina went to the Milo Foundation to pick up pups for her next event. Just as she walked in the door, she saw Becca and Toffee – two dogs of the same breed (Papillons) who were as adorable as could be. She brought them and four other pups to her next event and the two of them loved every bit of attention they received.

As she went to return the six pups, Sabrina realized she just could not let go of Becca and Toffee. In that moment, she recognized she needed them as much as they needed her. They deserved this second chance in life, and she wanted them together in hers. They are the perfect duo, the best of friends, beloved Puppy Love™ mascots and the most wonderful snuggle buddies!

We're Here to Help You!

Happy employees who feel valued and secure are significantly healthier and more productive than those that feel unappreciated. How many companies do you know that do not take the time to invest in employee wellness? We save you training dollars with increased retention and decreased absenteeism. We foster team spirit with positive work relationships, and as studies show, happier employees are healthier employees, which keeps not only their personal medical expense down, it also helps keep your annual renewal premiums lower.

We are also excited to increase adoption awareness and increase the possibility of finding our rescue puppies forever homes! When someone falls in love with one of our furry friends, we will happily put you in touch with the rescue agency to help initiate the adoption process!

Benefits Of
A Puppy Love Experience

Reduce Employee Absenteeism

Who doesn’t want to come to the office when there are puppies? Nothing makes the workplace more attractive than knowing there are adorable furry creatures to frolic with.

Increase Positive Work Relationships

For employees who have never met or who don’t know each other well – or even those who do, puppies are an amazing conversation starter and bonding experience.

Increase Employee Attention

Daily work saturation can get overwhelming. A few minutes of Puppy Love™ organically clears minds and boosts serotonin, leading to a positive attitude re-adjustment.

Improve Employee Productivity

When employees feel appreciated, all good things come – including the desire to work and do well for the company.

Bring Smiles Throughout the Day

The photo opps and buzz factor around a Puppy Love™ experience are unparalleled. Smiles will abound as photos are shared and the afterglow continues all through the day!

Reduce Stress & Anxiety

We all know the feeling of stress at work – looming deadlines, performance reviews, etc. A few minutes playing with puppies makes all that melt away and allows employees to lower their anxiety levels.

"Sabrina and her entire team were great! We had a corporate event and Sabrina organized puppies and canine companions to be at our conference over a 3-day period. All attendees were in love with this idea and it really made the entire conference extra special. Attendees could not stop talking about the experience and I was so grateful that Sabrina took care of everything and was so organized. All we had to do was show her where the puppy area was, and her team took care of everything. Extremely organized and I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants a unique experience at their next event. Thank you, Sabrina and team, for being awesome! "

"I hired Puppy Love for an event in our office in San Francisco. We had been hosting some creative happy hours of sorts and someone had the great idea of a puppy play date!

Lena, Pulse

"I recently had the pleasure of attending a corporate wellness event for Google where they hosted Puppy Love, who provided an amazing puppy experience. I’m an avid animal lover and was thrilled to see an employee engagement that not only focused on employee wellness but also gave back to the community in such a meaningful way. The Puppy Love event was fantastic. We were able to interact with adoptable dogs, and the event organizers provided information on the featured rescue who provided the pups. It was heartwarming to see everyone come together to support such an important cause – not to mention have a blast! I was impressed with how well-organized the event was - and the attention to detail. The pups were well-cared for, and the Puppy Love team was great. This was an excellent example of how a company can help make a positive impact on the community while also promoting employee wellness/happiness. I hope to see more events like this in the future, and I applaud Google for their commitment to giving back and supporting their employees in this way."

"We can't express enough gratitude for the amazing event we hosted with Puppy Love and the rescue puppies. It was heartwarming to see our fans and players come together to support such a great cause. The puppies brought so much joy and laughter to everyone, and it was an unforgettable experience to see 25 of them find their forever homes. We feel privileged to have been a part of this event, and we look forward to continuing to support Puppy Love and their mission to help provide people with joy and help the rescue care for animals in need.

Even the most conscientious workplace can be stress-filled. We believe cuddling and playing with puppies is an ideal way to restore the balance. In fact, scientific studies have shown positive therapeutic effects from animal interaction – including decreasing blood pressure and reduced levels of cortisol.
