Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is surprising passengers today by teaming up with the airport’s Paws for Passengers team of certified therapy pets and their handlers for the second annual “Smooches from Pooches” Kissing Booth event.

The event features therapy dogs, chocolate treats, roses and a special kissing booth, where travelers can take their photo with their favorite pooch.

Paws for Passengers is a special program in which therapy pets and their handlers interact with passengers and visitors at the airport. These special volunteers – many with four legs, wagging tails and lots of affection to share – are trained companions who like visiting with people of all ages.
