Hotel Indigo Has Gone to the Dogs to Attract Business and Support Local Cause

Partnership with Charleston Animal Society Benefits Pets and Their Traveling People

Hotel Indigo in Mount Pleasant announced today a new partnership with Charleston Animal Society to promote families traveling with their dogs and unique pet-friendly experiences in its Mount Pleasant, South Carolina boutique hotel property.  Starting today, guest traveling with their dogs can check into Hotel Indigo, located at 250 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. Mount Pleasant, SC 29464, and purchase a “Very Important Pooch” (VIP) Welcome Kit.  The kit contains a hiking pack, water bowl, fetch toy, a blanket and a map of pet-friendly park destinations in the Charleston area. The VIP Welcome Kit costs $75 and all of the profits benefit homeless animals at Charleston Animal Society.

In addition to the VIP Pet Welcome Kit, Hotel Indigo is also kicking-off weekly Yappy Hour events on its luxurious tropical patio.  While hotel guests traveling with their dogs are encouraged to participate in the Yappy Hours, every Wednesday from 5 pm to 7 pm, the events are designed to attract Charleston and Mount Pleasant residents looking for a fun afternoon with their canine companions, too.

In addition to drink specials, the hotel has created a new Dog Menu with tasty treats made to order for pets during the Yappy Hour.  The canine chef-tested and approved treats include a chicken and rice bowl and a burger bite plate.  Proceeds from signature drink sales and purchases from the Dog Menu, only available during the Yappy Hour events, also benefit the Charleston Animal Society.  Staff and volunteers from the Animal Society will be on hand at the Yappy Hour events to welcome guests and conduct weekly prize drawings.

“We have invested heavily in the local community with the renovation and re-launch of this Hotel Indigo property,” says Kumar Jha, General Manager for the hotel. “It is super important for the owners of the hotel, and for me personally, that we are also involved in important causes that the community cares about.  Joining forces with Charleston Animals Society was the only charity of choice for our organization.”

“For the last eight years, every healthy, adoptable pet who has turned to Charleston Animal Society has been helped or healed and placed into a loving home,” says Charleston Animal Society President and CEO Joe Elmore, CFRE, CAWA. “Our deep and meaningful partnerships with area businesses have helped us create a No Kill community. We pride ourselves on innovation and thought leadership and we could not be more excited about partnering with Hotel Indigo to promote a new era of pet-friendly travel to Charleston.”
