When you're away from home and all you want to do is snuggle up to your pet but you can't... If you just so happen to be in Mississippi at this specific hotel... you might be in luck to "foster" a dog during your stay! You can choose to adopt as well which is pretty cool! This has totally melted my heart! We need a hotel in Augusta to do this!
Teresa Johnston, Director of Sales atHome2 Suites by Hilton in D'Iberville, Mississippi, noticed that despite all of the amenities available for long term guests something was missing to make guests truly feel at home: pets.
That's when she had the idea to partner with the local humane society to turn the hotel into a foster home for homeless dogs.
Through the program, "Fostering Hope," the hotel takes one foster dog in at a time and allows guests to walk, feed, and babysit the pup during their stay.
If the guest — and, in some cases, the hotel employee — strikes up a special bond, they can adopt the dog right from the hotel. Then the hotel will take in another.
"They were missing something, I could see it, '' Johnston told Insider about her guests. "They were missing home and they were missing animals. I thought, 'why can't we put the two together?'"
Yes, bring it to Augusta!!!
