New Dog Adoption Program with the Inn by the Sea!

The ARLGP is excited to have partnered with the Inn by the Sea as our first off-site dog adoption location. The Inn by the Sea is a dog-friendly, seaside resort in Cape Elizabeth. We have a vast network of off-site locations for ARLGP cats and small animals, but the Inn by the Sea is our very first off-site dog location. Since we began our partnership the first week of May, we have already rehomed five dogs from the Inn to families near and far!

Our Inn by the Sea partnership began when Mambo, a Bernese Mountain mix, headed out to live a life of leisure at the Inn while waiting for a new family. Within three hours of Mambo arriving at the Inn, a family who had met him at our facility decided he was the one. During his short stay at the Inn, Mambo enjoyed ocean-side walks and lots of treats and snuggles from the staff.

One week later we sent our second dog to the Inn, Huddie! Huddie spent two days being spoiled by Inn staff and visitors before finding his new best friend at the Inn.

Our third dog was Loki, a plott hound mix, who was a bit more quiet and reserved than the Inn’s previous ARLGP guests. Loki spent Memorial Day weekend at the Inn by the Sea where a family from Long Island, New York was staying. They fell in love with Loki’s gentleness and sweet demeanor. They adopted him on their last day in Maine and headed home to NY with a new canine friend in tow!

Lucy Lu was our fourth dog to head over to the Inn to enjoy some rest and relaxation strolling the beach, and getting lots of cookies during the evening Yappy Hour. We are excited to say that she has a new human sister, and they are the best of friends!

Last week, our fifth dog, Tyra, strutted happily out of the Inn with her new family. We are happy to report that Tyra was adopted to a wonderful, local family.

Currently at the Inn is Zodi, a 7-year-old lab mix. She is a wonderful and sweet girl, who will be the perfect canine addition to almost any home. We encourage you to pay her a visit at the Inn, she will likely be lounging in the sun or enjoying a snack off the Inn’s custom canine menu!

We want to extend a big thank you to the Inn by the Sea and their amazing staff. We are so appreciative of our new partnership and their support of our animals. The staff truly goes out of their way to make sure their adoptable ARLGP dog is happily spoiled during their stay. They even have an LL Bean dog bed, monogrammed adopt me, for the pup at their lobby desk! In just one month, five canines have found a new beginning thanks to this amazing program. Please join us in thanking the Inn by the Sea for being so generous and kind to animals in need.
