Biloxi, Mississippi’s Home 2 Suites hotel has become popular among tourists and dog lovers. Aside from giving people a comfortable place to stay in, they also help homeless, abused, and abandoned dogs find forever families. It’s uncommon for a hotel to look after the welfare of strays that’s why Home 2 Suites hotel gained the love and respect of people from all over the world.
Their lobby is home to a lot of shelter dogs that had been put up for adoption. These dogs are former residents of the Humane Society of South Mississippi. Whenever these pups are at the hotel, they stay inside a large kennel located in the lobby.
Hope for the homeless pups
The hotel organized a program that allows its guests to foster and adopt shelter dogs. They call their program “Fostering Hope,” which is quite fitting since that’s exactly what you give homeless dogs when you adopt them.
Guests can submit applications to adopt any of the dogs during their stay at the hotel. Once their application is approved, they can take their pup to the hotel room. This also allows the guests and their newly adopted pets to get to know each other before they hit the road and go home.
More space for homeless dogs
The program is part of the hotel’s efforts in helping the shelter free up space so they can cater to more homeless dogs. The program also helped strengthen the connection between Home 2 Suites hotel and the community. The shelter dogs give weary travelers the comfort they need while they’re far away from home. It has become a go-to place for travelers worldwide.
Some of their guests like the place and the company of the dogs so much that they end up staying for months. Dogs love it when this happens because they get a feel of what it’s like to have a family.
