Do you love dogs? Then may want to try to book your next flight to or through Los Angeles International Airport. On Monday the airport introduced a Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUP) program where volunteers walk around each departure terminal with trained dogs wearing red vests reading “Pet Me!” The goal of the program is to de-stress passengers and give them a boost of happiness before their flights by allowing them to pet these adorably furry friends. PUP is a partnership between the airport and Therapy Dogs.
“This is such an exciting day for all of us in customer service at LAX,” Heidi Huebner, director of airport volunteers, who oversees the program, told NBCNews. “We love our volunteers and are thrilled to now have dogs as part of our team, bringing joy to everyone at the airport.”
