Wag Hotel, a three-story, 239-room hotel for dogs and cats, will celebrate the grand opening of its San Francisco property from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 12 and 13.
The grand opening will include free tours of the dog-friendly hotel, a 10 percent discount on all purchases and reservations and prizes such as a free lifetime stay in Wag Hotels. Visitors are encouraged to bring their pets.
Wag Hotel will donate 15 percent of all proceeds from store sales and reservations made during the event to Pets Are Wonderful Support, a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization that provides for the needs of companion animals for low-income owners living with HIV/AIDS and other illnesses.
Store products include clothing accessories, edible items, toys and bedding.
The 35,000-square-foot dog hotel has amenities such as a 5,600-gallon indoor swimming pool, a rooftop lawn for “business walks” and indoor doggie play areas.
Dog spa services include massages, blueberry facials, paw-dicures and other grooming services, while feline guests stay in “The Cattery,” which has 20 multi-level condos, each with a private bathroom and view of a central freshwater aquarium.
“As a pet owner and frequent traveler, I know how important it is to have a place that ensures the health and safety of my Bulldog, Zoebee — and that’s why I created Wag,” Wag Hotels founder and chief executive Ritu Raj said.
