The Home 2 Suites Hotel in Mississippi helps homeless dogs in getting adopted. The accommodation has already fostered a lot of shelter dogs kept in large kennels in the hotel lobby. These rescue dogs were from the Humane Society of South Mississippi.
The hotel created a program called ” Fostering Hope,” where guests can foster and adopt dogs. During their stay, guests can make an application to adopt a dog. Once approved, they can have the dogs stay in their rooms and bring them home.
The program helps make space for more rescue dogs in the shelter. It’s also a way to increase the opportunity for dogs to get noticed and adopted. At the same time, it provided comfort to the guest during their stay.
The hotel’s relationship with the community became better because of this program. The hotel can help more dogs that need rescuing by charging a small adoption fee to those who want to adopt.
The hotel accommodates long- term guests and patrons who usually stay for months. Guests can have enough time to get along with their dogs and decide whether to adopt them or not.
Although a lot of guests find it hard to resist the dog’s charm, many guests still end up adopting and going home with a pup. The hotel encourages its guests to adopt, so they can let more stray dogs to be fostered.
Adopting a dog only costs 50 dollars. Luckily, 33 adorable dogs had already found their forever homes. The program has been successful and has provided happiness for both dogs and people. The community was grateful to the hotel for making such a gesture towards the stray dogs.
What the hotel did can bring inspiration to other establishments, after knowing that they can do business and help their community at the same time.
