Pittsburgh Hotel Offers Free Pet Adoption Services With Extended Stay

Shadyside Inn All Suites Hotel, one of Pittsburgh’s most pet-friendly hotels, has announced a program to allow hotel guests to receive a free pet adoption after completing a five night stay at the property.

Starting on April 30th, National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day, guests signed up for the program will receive a credit towards adoption from their local shelter, giving hope to animals in need and allowing guests to make a difference in their local community.


Shadyside Inn has a longstanding commitment to helping animals in need. President/CEO Jonathan Plesset is a co-founder of PAART (Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team) a rescue organization dedicated to providing animals a second chance by offering free air and ground transport from danger to safety. PAART’s trained volunteer pilots and drivers provide help to thousands of animals a year that are in danger of being euthanized by an underfunded shelter, displaced by a natural disaster, or in an abusive situation. Plesset and his co-founder Brad Childs, both pilots, started PAART as a way to use their flying skills in a creative way to create real change in an area of passion. PAART has grown from two founders with one airplane, to an organization with over 200 volunteers, multiple airplanes and ground rescue vehicles. Since its inception, PAART has rescued over 7,000 animals.


“Everyday there are animals waiting for our rescue teams to arrive and give them the second chance they need. Our hotel guests can now play a PAART in completing their story by adopting one of these rescues into their homes,” said Jonathan Plesset, President and CEO of Shadyside Inn and a co-founder of PAART.
