Zach LaVine hasn’t suited up for an NBA game since February 3 of last season and he’s still waiting to make his Chicago Bulls debut, but that hasn’t stopped him from stepping up for the organization from time to time.

During the team’s game against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night, the two-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion surprised a well-deserving Bulls fan with a new puppy ahead of the holidays.

Maria Hogan was at the game as part of the After School Matters program. Since her dog recently passed away, LaVine, the Bulls organization and Pet Stuff USA teamed up to help put a smile on her face for the holiday season.  

Not only did Maria go home with a new puppy, she also received a year’s supply of food for her new family member, courtesy of Pet Stuff USA.
