Running since Oct 2018, a Mississippi hotel created a program to keep guests from getting lonely during their stay.
At Home2 Suites by Hilton Biloxi North/D'Iberville, people can hang out with a dog from a local shelter and keep them in their rooms.
If a guest falls in love with one of the dogs, they can even adopt them when they check out.
The hotel specializes in long-term visits, with some guests booking for months at a time, so that gives them a lot of time to spend with the dogs and potentially fall in love with them.
So far, 33 people have gone home with one of the “Fostering Hope” pets.
