McKibbon Hotel Group, an award-winning hotel management group, has partnered with Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue (CAAR), to try to effect more dog adoptions in the community. It's an inspired idea. Dogs add so much warmth wherever they go, and it's proven that our blood pressure lowers while we're petting a dog or cat. In fact, it's been proven more recently that dogs and cats' blood pressure is also lowered when they are being petted. This is great socialization for the dogs, getting them out of the shelter and meeting people in a normal setting. And it's just possible that a dog will find his forever home month the visitors.

McKibbon Hotel Group's contemporary dog-friendly lifestyle hotel, Aloft Asheville Downtown, collaborated with CAAR as their quarterly community service project. The goal is to help find permanent homes for several CAAR dogs, rescuing pets from possible euthanasia at area shelters. As guests arrive at the Aloft Asheville Downtown, a dog will welcome them from behind the registration desk dressed in an "Adopt Me" vets. Guests can interact with the dog during check-in as well as at the hotel lounge and additional designated areas.
The Hotels are beautiful and certainly made much more welcoming by the presence of the dogs.

It's hard to imagine anything more enjoyable than going to a wonderful hotel, being greeted by a canine behind the desk and, perhaps, bringing him home with you - a wonderful new family member to add to life's joys. That would certainly be a vacation to remember.
