                              MOTELS THAT ACCEPT DOGS
       Every year it is harder to find hotels which accept dogs. Please help all dog lovers by treating these ho-
         tels like you would your own home (or better) so they don’t have any reason to stop accepting pets.
                         Ask regarding pet-related charges as they change periodically.
