BC Hotel chain partners with the BC SPCA

Accent Inns partners with the BC SPCA and offers free Puppy Love Pet Stays to celebrate Valentine’s Day

February 2, 2010- To celebrate Accent Inns’ new partnership with the BC SPCA and to show a little Valentine’s love to their canine friends, Accent Inns is offering free pet stays from February 12 to February 21.

Guests can now return the unconditional love of their beagle, bichon or border collie with  a road trip to one of the pet-friendly Accent Inns throughout British Columbia.  Whether it’s a trip to sniff out the first signs of spring in Victoria, or a combination business and ski trip in Kamloops or Kelowna, Accent Inns will welcome your four legged friend just as warmly as they welcome you.

The love of dogs runs deep at Accent Inns and pets are welcome throughout the year, but the Puppy Love Pet Stay program offers guests a savings of $20 per pet, the normal cleaning pet charge.

Accent Inn’s partnership with the BC SPCA is kicking off this month as well, when one dollar from all pet stays will go directly to care for local animals in need.  Last year approximately 3,500 pets stayed at Accent Inns throughout BC.

Mandy Farmer, CEO of Accent Inns, is a dog lover through and through and often travels with Lando, her five year old black lab.  “Pets are a huge part of many of our families at Accent Inns,” explains Farmer. “Many of our regular business travellers bringing their dogs on the road with them and families who are travelling throughout BC also appreciate being able to share their hotel room with Bella or Buddy.”

The Puppy Love Pet Stay program is available at the Kelowna, Kamloops or Victoria Accent Inns from February 12 to February 21, 2010.  These properties all offer green space around the hotels and great neighbourhood dog walks.   Please call 1-800-663-0298 to reserve a designated pet room.  Pets are not to be left alone in a room and they must be on a leash at all times when outside. Owners are responsible for any damage or noise problems caused by their pets

Accent Inns has been independently certified by Pets Can Stay as meeting or exceeding all criteria required for the Standard Certification designation.  For more information on the Pets Can Stay program, visit
