Grab a coffee, find yourself a furry companion

Each week, five or six dogs or cats available for adoption from the La Plata County Humane Society and Annie’s Orphans will be featured on coffee sleeves for to-go cups at Jitters Java, 802 Camino del Rio.

Some of the county’s most adorable pooches and tabbies looking for forever homes will soon be featured with every cup o’ joe you buy at Jitters Java.

The coffee shop at 802 Camino del Rio is working with La Plata County Humane Society and Annie’s Orphans to feature short bios and color photos of five to six adoptable dogs and cats from their facilities on coffee sleeves provided with to-go cups at Jitters Java.

“It’s another way to get the word out about pets that are adoptable into the community,” said Emily Phillips, marketing and development coordinator for the Humane Society.

Bios will note personalities of the adoptable animals, things like “loves to play fetch” or “is good with kids and other animals,” Phillips said.

Each week, five or six animals each from the Humane Society and Annie’s Orphans, will be featured on the sleeves. Each week, a new group of animals will be printed for a new week of sleeves.

The adoption promotion is also sponsored by Office Depot in Durango and Bloodhound Hemp Farms.

“We’re working hard to find them forever homes. Go grab yourself a cup and fall in love with one of our adoptable pets” said Aimee Beauregard, owner of Jitters Java.
