After a slew of cat cafes opened around the world, the U.S. has its first dog cafe.
Thanks to a fundraising campaign, The Dog Cafe opened its doors in Los Angeles. The concept is what you would expect — for $10 an hour, you can grab a cup of coffee and spend time playing with adoptable dogs.
It's more about the dogs and less about the coffee. The cafe's mission is to "revolutionize dog adoption by reinventing the way people connect with rescues."
But dog lovers on the hunt for a new pooch, or just looking for some snuggles, need to plan ahead. On Sunday, reservations at The Dog Cafe were booked for the next nine days.
So, will the animal cafe trend continue to grow? It seems so — especially with Tokyo's brand new hedgehog cafe.
