PREMIER INN HOTELS LAUNCHES NEW INITIATIVE TO SUPPORT CANINE WELFARE IN THE UAE
Guests can buy plush puppy toys at the hotel, with the proceeds of the sale going to support the work of K9 Friends
Premier Inn Hotels has launched a new initiative to support the welfare of the abandoned dog population in the UAE. The new initiative is in line with the British hotel’s plans to give back to the local community in the UAE.
Guests visiting or staying at any Premier Inn hotel in Abu Dhabi or Dubai can purchase Pip, a plush puppy toy for AED50 (US $13.61). Every purchase of Pip (short for Premier Inn Puppy) supports the work of K9 Friends, a rescue and rehoming shelter based in Dubai, a hotel statement said.
Commenting on the initiative, Premier Inn’s projects and facilities manager Jonathan Leonard said: “The hotel teams get involved by visiting the shelter and donating essential items needed by K9 Friends, whilst our guests can purchase Pip, the Premier Inn puppy, at any of our hotels.”
