Humane Society Is Looking For Volunteers To Snuggle Shelter Puppies


The Humane Society of Tampa Bay has a unique job offer for those who are looking to advance their careers. Did you know that snuggling with dogs is an actual job? Thanks to the assistance that this Humane Society is looking to provide, we can now apply to work at our dream job. Who wouldn’t want to spend their free time snuggling with adorable doggies?


Jeff Honig may not seem like the most likely candidate for such a gig but this retired deputy loves every minute of it. While he has four cats of his own at home, he likes to stop by so that he can hang out with the dogs. A man needs his canine fix, right? He says that it is a soothing experience for the dogs and that he also gets a lot out of it.

The shelter sincerely appreciates the help that Jeff is willing to provide. They do not always have the ability to find the proper amount of snuggle buddies. You’d think that this would be the type of job that everyone would want. The dogs that need cuddles the most are the dogs that are fresh out of surgery. This can be a confusing time for the animal.

There are lots of students that are willing to volunteer but when school is not in session, it can be harder to find people who can set the time aside. Once the winter rolls around, the students are often busy with their schoolwork and this keeps them from being able to assist. This shelter needs helpful volunteers now more than ever.

Let’s all do our part to raise awareness about these types of opportunities. There are a multitude of dogs in the world who need cuddles and let’s face it, what could be more fun than taking the time to cuddle with an animal who needs your help? Thanks to the good folks at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, these dreams can now become realities.

If you would like to learn more about all of the ways that you can help, please be sure to visit the Humane Society of Tampa Bay website as soon as possible. Take a moment to check out the video below to find out everything you need to know about this awesome cuddle program. Keep the good work, Humane Society of Tampa Bay! You’re doing amazing.
