That Dog Cafe In Los Angeles Finally Opened And The Photos Are Puptastic

puppyFinally, Angelenos have a place to admire canines.

Just kidding, there are more dogs than people in LA, but now two of life’s greatest things have been brought together in one place: rescue pups and chai tea lattes.

The Dog Cafe LA houses about a dozen dogs of all ages and breeds that have been rescued from local shelters and are available for adoption. The cafe founder and owner, Sarah Wolfgang, hopes to help reduce the rates of homelessness and euthanasia that plague so many unwanted dogs in America.

So, why didn’t we have one of these magical places years ago? While dog and cat cafes are popular in Korea and Japan, strict health regulations make similar cafes a total headache to open and operate in the US. To comply with the health department, Dog Cafe LA actually has two storefronts in Silver Lake — one for fixing caffeinated drinks and one for playing with the pups.

And unlike spending ten bucks on a sugar-laden Starbucks latte, you can feel good about all the money you spend at Dog Cafe LA since the majority of the proceeds go toward covering the dogs’ medical bills.

It’s really a win-win situation all around.
