On this Friday leading into a very stressful election, we need news like this: that San Francisco may get its very own canine café. The city is already home to a cat cafe, and now it’s time for puppies to get their due. NextGen Shelter Project and Innovative Dog Training and Education have teamed up to create Canine Cafe, a non-profit café dedicated to helping adoptable dogs find homes.
The reason why it’s still a might? The project is currently raising funds on Indiegogo, and is sadly pretty short of its $500,000 goal. It’s also trying to fund locations in San Diego, New York City, and Albuquerque.
The idea behind the project is to make it a “starter shelter/dog adoption center,” with each location finding homes for 1,500 dogs each year. (People not looking to adopt are welcome in the cafe, too, though.) The café will take care of training the dogs, too, on their way to a home.
So, to sum that up: A! Puppy! Café! Might! Come! To! San! Francisco!
