The “Borrow a Buddy” program is a great partnership between the Beachcomber Motel, Surf & Sand Lodge and the Beach House Inn, all in Fort Bragg, and the Mendocino Coast Humane Society. If guests don’t have a dog, or can’t travel with their own, this program encourages them to spread the love to our local pound puppies.
The “Borrow a Buddy” program enables guests of these dog-passionate Fort Bragg lodging properties to borrow an adoptable dog and take him/her on a fun local outing, away from the adoption center here in Fort Bragg. Give a deserving pup some love and exercise by taking them to a dog-friendly winery, restaurant, state park, or beach!
This free program is available Tuesday – Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Humane Society asks that dogs be returned by 3:30 p.m. each day. Though this is a free program, a credit card will be required as a deposit while the dog is on an outing. Ask the front desk when you stay at any of these hotels about the Borrow a Buddy Program.
A to-go baggie will be provided by the Humane Society that includes:
- Collar & Leash
- Waste Bags
- Water & Dish
- Adoption Vest
