Partnering with Local Humane Society, Pet Stay Atlantic City to Provide Dog Amenities and Treats

Showboat Atlantic City is rolling out the red carpet for its canine guests and marking its territory as the only dog-friendly casino in Atlantic City. Pet Stay Atlantic City will launch on February 24, 2011, and provide a wealth of pet-friendly amenities for guests and their dogs.

Showboat has set aside a collection of rooms in its New Orleans Tower to accommodate all kinds of canines. Upon arrival, pups are welcomed with in-room gift amenities including treats, food and water bowls, a doggie mat, disposable waste bags and a keepsake duffle bag.

“We’re thrilled to bring Pet Stay Atlantic City to our guests and provide the royal treatment to man’s best friend,” said Joe Domenico, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Showboat and Bally’s Atlantic City. “This initiative puts Showboat at the forefront of Atlantic City’s world-class offerings and will bring more customers to our casinos without having to leave their pets behind.”

On March 3rd Showboat Atlantic City will present a $1,000 donation to the Ocean City Humane Society in honor of their new guests. Showboat’s Club Harlem will welcome pet owners and their dogs for a special soirée.

The pet program is open to dogs only and allows a maximum of 2 dogs up to 50 pounds per room. There is a $40 fee per night for pets, but the fee will be waived during the first two weeks of the program’s launch.  Dogs are allowed in the hotel but are not permitted on the casino floor or in food and beverage areas, the spa or retail shops.
