Kara Salzmann, Minnesota native, mother of two children and one Goldendoodle pup, founded Picnics With A Pup in 2018 with the hope of spreading the same amount of gratitude she feels every single day as she reflects on the many blessings in her life! A magical thing happens when gratitude meets the calling for service and thus, Picnics With A Pup is born!
Picnics With A Pup is a non-profit organization that partners with hospitals and other non-profit groups that support the mission of providing hope and healing to children battling illness. Children are visited by a licensed therapy dog that delivers picnic baskets filled with fun and inspirational surprises Picnic basket items include books, toys, puzzles, movies, a stuffed puppy, and blanket. Each visit includes interactions with a therapy pup and includes a picnic experience, whether that is a pup performing tricks or spreading out a blanket and reading to a pup. Picnics With A Pup will deliver 150 baskets in 2019!
