Meet Your New Best Friend Up on The Woof

Sunday's event at Hotel Monaco is the perfect place to find a furry companion to share the sofa as winter approaches.

As the weather begins to turn and the draw of curling up on the couch becomes irresistible, ask yourself this question: Wouldn’t that bit of nesting be much more cozy with a furry friend to share the sofa with? There’s never a bad time to rescue a pup in need, but the Hotel Monaco wants to make this Sunday the day you meet your new best friend.

The Pet Connection, a family-focused “woof-top” event, will bring dog lovers together atop the downtown hotel for an afternoon of pooch-themed activities and adoption opportunities. Animal Friends will be on hand with adoptable animals, and “unlimited puppy play time” is included with your ticket.

Additionally, the event will include readings of the Dr. Seuss book “What Pet Should I Get?” and Suess-themed snacks for all ages; grown ups can also enjoy a signature cocktail created by Wigle Whiskey. And if all that petting helps you to work up an appetite, head downstairs to The Commoner and score 20% off of your bill with your ticket.

Oh, and see that statue pictured above? That great dane (the state dog of Pennsylvania, by the way) stands watch outside the Hotel Monaco — but he needs a name. A name-that-dog contest starts Sunday on the Hotel Monaco Facebook page.

Tickets for The Pet Connection are available here.
