In celebration of Halloween, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) guests were treated to a sight of furry faces in spooky and fun costumes today for the Third Annual PUP (Pets Unstressing Passengers) Halloween Parade.
More than 30 LAX PUP volunteers and their therapy dogs roamed Terminal 4, 5 and Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) to surprise guests, hand out stickers and take photos.
“This Halloween, our PUPs are out in costume to remind our guests that traveling doesn’t have to be scary — in fact, it can be quite a treat!” said Trevor Daley, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Deputy Executive Director for External Affairs. “We love delighting our guests and providing memorable travel experiences, and today’s PUP Halloween parade is just one example of how we bring smiles to the faces of our guests of all ages. Happy Halloween from everyone at LAWA!”
The LAX PUP Program began four years ago, and has more than 70 therapy dogs and is the largest airport managed therapy dog program in the nation. Those interested in learning more about the LAX PUP Program can contact Heidi Huebner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (424) 646-8471.
