One hotel in Mississipi has set up an ingenious program allowing guests to adopt the foster dogs that live there. And when you see these cute pooches, you'll understand why the program has been so successful.
Travelling can be lonely.

via: InstagramAnd a hotel filled with dogs is basically a dream come true.
But that dream has become a reality.

And what's even better?
via: InstagramIt's part of a program called Fostering Hope.
Which means that ...
via: InstagramEvery single one of these cuties is available to adopt.
It brings in dogs from the Humane Society of South Mississipi.
via: InstagramAnd guests can enjoy playing with and cuddling these cuties.
The dogs are all in the lobby.
via: InstagramAnd as guests check-in, they have the option to foster them in their hotel rooms.
The guests share an experience with their dog.
via: InstagramAnd then when they leave, they get to make a big decision.
They get the option to adopt their pooch.
via: InstagramAnd take them back to their forever home!
via: InstagramWhat an absolutely incredible idea.
It frees up much-needed space in the shelter.
via: InstagramThe shelter takes in around eight thousand dogs per year, and adopts out about 80% of them.
The hotel helps speed up turnover.
via: InstagramWhich means more and more dogs have the opportunity to meet their potential family.
The hotel tends to have guests for longer stays.
via: InstagramWhich makes it a great venue to allow dogs and humans time to bond.
"They have a lot of transient guests who stay for months at a time near our army and navy bases and that's just enough time to fall in love with a dog."
via: InstagramAs Bianca Janik the shelter's relations manager told USA TODAY.
Hotel sales director Teresa Johnston set up the initiative.
via: Instagram"Teresa thought they needed to set their hotel apart and this was," Janik went on.
"She wanted to have the business more involved with the community."
via: Instagram"It was a very out-of-the-box way to find our animals' new homes so we were on board."
It makes adoption easy.
via: InstagramGuests simply have to fill out a form as they check out, and pay a small $50 fee.
"We have a very open adoption program."
via: Instagram"People are trying to do the right thing by adopting. We reserve the right to deny."
"We may tell them we don’t feel comfortable, come visit our shelter tomorrow and we’ll find one that is right."
via: InstagramBut that hasn't stopped the program's success!
So far, over thirty dogs have found their forever homes.
via: InstagramWhich is undeniably incredible stuff.
But when you see the dogs ...
via: InstagramIt's not hard to see why!
We can imagine this would be the best holiday ever.
via: InstagramWhat's better than a vacation? A vacation with dogs, of course.
Imagine seeing this cutie in your bed.
via: InstagramWe can certainly think of worse visitors!
This guy is just unbelievable.
