Hotels Reach Traveling Pet Owners
Knoxville, TN --- April 20, 2004--- An increasing number of hoteliers and innkeepers have begun to offer pet-friendly lodging to travelers because of the enormous potential for increased revenue.

As these hoteliers vie for the traveling public, they continue to seek new and better amenities to attract visitors. But no amenities attract the growing pet-loving traveling public as does the added advantage of pet-friendly lodging. 

America’s love affair with household pets has burgeoned into an enormous boom for pet-friendly businesses. With more travelers choosing cars over planes since 911, they also opt to bring their pets with them. The number of pets has increased to some 36-million households in the last decade

Brian Bailey, spokesperson for ( said, “We thought our site would be perfect for the pet-loving public but we’re astounded with the response we’ve gotten so far. Since the initial launch, the Web site has won immediate recognition from the public as well as being awarded “Top Site of the Week” by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Additionally we’ve been a hit with hotels by producing incremental revenues and increasing overall visibility for them.”
