Cape Town - If you are looking for a travel companion to run, roam and embrace the beauty of the world with you - a four or three or two-legged bestie may be the best gift in life, ever. 

atFrits Dog Hotel & Daycare Centre has started an Adopt-A-Thon to find sheltered dogs a forever home with the adventurers of SA. 

Travellers have the opportunity to meet with their future fury-friends every Saturday at the dog hotel in Cape Town, where atFrits will partner with local animal shelters to help re-home rescue dogs.

It is a harsh reality that there are so many dogs on the street that have been neglected and abandoned and although we are eternally grateful to shelters for the hard work they do, a loving family is what these dogs ultimately deserve.

The rescue dogs will arrive at atFrits Dog Hotel & Daycare Centre at 10:00 on a Saturday and be pampered to a spa treatment so that they can settle in looking and feeling great!

They will be able to play and hang with the doggie “staff-on-duty” and receive a nutritious meal, served from the a-la-cart menu. All the sheltered dogs will stay in the Deluxe and Platinum Suites - all in all, a foretaste of finding their happiest escapes yet!
