Science says that interacting with animals reduces cortisol levels and has a positive effect on decreasing blood pressure – and there’s certainly no mistaking the pure joy felt when there’s a puppy on your lap. You’ll head back to your desk refreshed, re-focused, re-energised, and maybe a little sad to have said goodbye.


How many people will I be sharing a puppy cuddling session with?

Each session will host up to 15 people and lasts up to 15 m. This would make a great team event!

How many puppies and how old will they be?

There will be 10 puppies to cuddle with – they will be 8 weeks old.

What if I want more than 15 minutes with the puppies?

No worries! You are welcome to book multiple sessions.

What if I want to adopt one of the puppies I meet?

You are welcome to adopt a puppy – but you just won’t be able to take her or him home on the day. An adoption form will need to be completed online and then the Auckland Puppy Rescue Team will be in touch for property inspections etc.

Can I donate more than $5 to Auckland Puppy Rescue?

Yes! When you book a ticket, you will see an option to add on an extra donation if you wish. Your money will go towards paying for puppy vaccinations and food. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.

What if I’m interesting in fostering?

There will be fosters present during the event who can provide information about the pups and what it’s like being a foster parent.
