The American Kennel Club originally launched AKC PupPals for kids in need of uplifting with a message from a canine friend. In light of the crisis California is facing right now, they thought it was fitting to expand the program to cater to anyone in need of some cheer – medical professionals (HEROES), nursing home and hospital patients, and anyone else impacted by the California wildfires. They hope that this can help them smile a bit.
Anyone can nominate a person to receive a letter or video from a canine companion.
They have received over 500 requests fulfilled and are happy to do more.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
