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."

I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for the fantastic work you did at Manifest. Your puppy booth was a real hit and brought a lot of attention to our company. The fact that you worked so hard to make it happen did not go unnoticed, and we appreciate your efforts more than words can say.
In particular, we wanted to thank you for bringing in so many great leads for us. Your presence and the excitement it generated were instrumental in helping us connect with potential customers and partners. We believe that these connections will lead to great things for our business, and we owe a lot of that to you."

Workplace stress can damage morale, slow down productivity, and make the office feel negative and constricted. Providing healthy outlets for stress relief and anxiety reduction is an integral part of caring for your employees. Studies show that interacting with animals helps humans to decrease their cortisol (stress hormone) levels and increase brain chemicals tied to happiness and energy. By taking time to pet a puppy and disconnect from the work at hand, employees can practice mindfulness and reduce their overall stress and anxiety. It’s tough to have a bad day at work when your shift includes cuddling puppies!
The importance of a mentally and physically healthy workforce as a company cannot be overstated. Incorporating wellness programs and activities is key to helping employees feel valued and cared for. Research shows spending time with puppies is a great way to improve well-being, so an event with Puppy Love™ is the perfect way to boost employee morale and wellness.
On top of the benefits to your company and employees, working with Puppy Love for your corporate wellness program allows you to give back to your community. Puppy Love donates 20% of all proceeds to their trusted and vetted puppy rescues.
Additionally, you’ll be providing puppies with crucial enrichment and socialization through your event. Plus, the puppies at Puppy Love are adoptable, meaning your wellness event may help a puppy find their forever home. Help the dogs in your community while boosting employee wellness.
