Celebrating 100th Adoption at At Aloft Orlando Downtown With a “Bow Wow Luau”

Central Florida’s Pet Experts Mark Their Milestone 100th Adoption Through The Dog in Residence Foster Program at Aloft Orlando Downtown Hotel With a Pawaiian-Themed Event and Fundraiser

Dress your pup up for the Pawaiian costume contest!

For the past year, visitors of Aloft Orlando Downtown have been met with an extra sweet, adorable greeting by adoptable dogs from Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando housed in the lobby through the Dog in Residence program.  Now, Pet Alliance is proud to announce the 100th dog adopted through the foster program, which they will celebrate with a special “Bow Wow Luau” held at the hotel on Saturday, July 27. From 3pm-7pm, all are encouraged to dress their pup in their favorite Pawaiian attire and enjoy a costume contest, live music, Hawaiian cuisine, pawsitively awesome merchants and uniquely designed custom tile dog houses up for auction with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Pet Alliance. Plus, pawty guests will get their last chance to register for the My Best Friend Wine Contest for a chance to have their pet featured on Quantum Leap Winery’s Rescue Red or Rescue White labels.  The fun-filled event is free to attend.  Pup parents can also purchase cocktails for $10, which includes a specialty cup, sunglasses and a dog bandana, with proceeds as well supporting Pet Alliance.

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and Aloft Orlando Downtown’s Dog in Residence program is the first and only hotel dog adoption program in Central Florida.  Through the program, the pet-friendly hotel houses one dog from Pet Alliance at a time in a mini-Aloft doghouse and enclosure stationed for public view in the lobby, who can be adopted by hotel guests and visiting locals.  Since launching in late May of last year, every pup part of the program has found their furever home at Aloft. See the dog houses below and bid here (ends at the Luau on July 27).

“We are thrilled to reach our 100th dog adoption through the Dog in Residence program at Aloft Orlando Downtown,” says Special Events Manager Caryn Freas.  “This has been a hugely popular program that we are very grateful to our partners at Aloft for.  From hotel guests (even some celebrity!) to visiting locals, it warms our hearts to see the families created for our pups this way.  We look forward to celebrating Pawaiian-style at the Bow Wow Luau and continuing to raise awareness overall for our beloved cause.” 

Join the “Bow Wow Luau” on Saturday, July 27 from 3pm-7pm at Aloft Orlando Downtown located at 500 South Orange Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801.  For more information about Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, call 407-351-7722 or visit bit.ly/BowWowLuau2019.
