To Aloft Hotel in downtown Asheville, NC for partnering with local rescues to increase adoptions.
While most travelers are expecting a warm bed and cable TV while checking into a hotel for the evening, guests at the Aloft Hotel in downtown Asheville, NC are also greeted by a friendly adoptable dog at the front desk. Since Aloft Hotel began their parnership with Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue in July, 14 dogs have been adopted and rescue placements have doubled. Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue saves dogs from local shelters who are at risk for euthanasia.
Aloft Hotel has several dog-friendly areas designated throughout the hotel, and visitors can also spend some one-on-one time with the dog while exploring the downtown area. This also allows the dog for much-needed socialization and interaction with humans and the environment.
While more dogs have been placed in loving homes thanks to Aloft’s new program, the hotel has yet to receive one negative complaint regarding allergies, noise, or uncleanliness related to the dogs. It does seem, though, that visitors are rather fond of their warm welcome from a furry friend.
