Buddy Break is back @ Lafayette Square Thurs Nov 12

Buddy Break in the CBD
Brought To You By the Jefferson SPCA & Capdeville Restaurant
Thursday November 12th, Lafayette Square 11-2

Nobody needs a brisk afternoon walk more than a desk-bound office worker — except for maybe a shelter dog. Buddy Break returns to Lafayette Square for the popular event that provides CBD workers with a break with a canine companion. 

Buddy Break presented by Capdeville Restaurant is a Jefferson SPCA program pairing 9-to-5ers with shelter dogs for lunchtime strolls. Everyone gets the fresh air, camaraderie, exercise, and tail wagging they need. Take a Buddy Break in Lafayette Square. Join Jefferson SPCA adoptable dogs and volunteers.

Studies show that office workers who take breaks from the daily grind have increased productivity, creativity, and problem solving abilities. When that break involves exercise, fresh air, and the proven stress relief of interacting with a friendly dog — well, it becomes even more potent.

Not only that, but adoptable dogs who are walked regularly have fewer social and behavioral problems, making them more likely to be adopted.

No commitment. No strings. No pressure. All you need is a willingness to hang out with a dog who needs the walk as much as you do.

Come get your doggie fix during lunch!

Sponsored by Capdeville Restaurant located at 520 Capdeville Street steps away from Lafayette Square, Buddy Break will feature the following:

* Dozens of adoptable shelter dogs
* Giveaways from Capdevillle Restaurant
* Puppy Party - unlimited play for kids and adults alike with adorable shelter pups
* Photo/Kissing Booth
* Free "I Walked a Dog at Buddy Break" stickers

The Jefferson SPCA supports the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter, and aids in its lifesaving mission.  Our programs prevent and address animal cruelty and provide much-needed medical treatment, rescues, and ultimately adoptions for homeless pets.  For more information, contact us at, online
