This October, The Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia (BBAV) and the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies (VFHS) partner to celebrate Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog month. These two organizations are offering anyone who adopts a pet, from any of VFHS’s shelters or rescue groups, the chance to win an InnVirginia.com gift card.

BBAV’s list of inspected and approved Inns consists of 26 pet-friendly destinations across the state that would be perfect for a family and its new furry friend. From a getaway at the beach to a hike in the mountains, there is a total of 170 destinations that the new owner of a pet could choose from. VFHS’s motto, “Serving People Saving Animals” is a perfect way to describe this partnership. BBAV aids B&B owners in serving their guests in the same way the VFHS helps shelters and rescue groups in saving and adopting pets. Combined through their Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog month offer, BBAV and VFHS serve people and save animals. Click to see a list of participating shelters.
