San Francisco Pet-Friendly Hotel Monaco Partners with SPCA to Host Valentine’s “Smooches With Pooches” Fundraiser

San Francisco, Feb 12 2011: The pet-friendly San Francisco Hotel Monaco and the San Francisco SPCA are hosting a benefit kissing booth this Valentine’s Day from 4 to 6pm at the Hotel Monaco. Donations of $5, which fully benefit the San Francisco SPCA, entitles participants to a big, wet kiss from one of the Directors of Pets Relations, a photo of the intimate moment, and a tasting of Rosa Regale—a rare semi-sparkling wine from Italy.

Pet lovers will be happy to know that the Directors of Pet Relations are, in fact, dogs. Oliver is a three-year-old Golden Retriever, who will do anything for a treat and a belly rub. Lucy, a Boston Terrier and Pug mix recently rescued by a hotel employee, is an adorable one-year-old gal, who loves to cuddle and play chase.

“Oliver and Lucy are a very important part of the Hotel Monaco family, from the perspective of our staff and our guests: both human and pet,” said Lisa Kershner, General Manager & Regional Vice President Hotel Monaco. “The joy they, and all of our pet guests bring to our hotel and guests drive our commitment to helping less fortunate animals like those rescued and protected by the SF SPCA.”

Hotel Monaco is a pet-friendly hotel in San Francisco that welcomes guests with pets of any size for no additional fee. The hotel provides their four-legged friends special amenities while visiting, including pet bowls and beds and a guide book for the best San Francisco dog walks.
