BC hotel chain spreading ‘howl-iday’ cheer with adoptable puppies

Accent Inns and BC Humane Society partnered up for an adoption tour across the province

Accent Inns is wishing everyone a happy howl-iday.

Six fluffy puppies visited the Puppermint Village at the Accent Inn on Harvey Avenue Kelowna on Dec. 6.

The hotel chain has partnered with the BC Humane Society to spread cheer and find homes for adoptable puppies.

The adoption tour started at Accent Inns in Kamloops on Dec. 5 where two of eight puppies were adopted out.

Accent Inns Marketing Coordinator Matt Schmitt said they had people eagerly awaiting puppy cuddles when they opened the doors at 1 p.m.

Schmitt said this is the second year the hotel chain has hosted the adoption tour. “The kids love it, the public loves it, and obviously the staff love it. It’s the best day at work.”

Accent Inns is doing more than just hosting the adoption tour. The company is giving BC Humane Society 10 per cent from leisure stays in December at any of their locations across the province.

“Last year we were able to generate $10,000 to give to them, so we’re hoping to do a little better than last year.”

The BC Humane Society has had a trying year, seeing more than 1,000 dogs and puppies come through their doors in 2023.

The adoption tour makes its way to Burnaby on Dec. 7 and Victoria on Dec. 8.
