Guide Dogs - Beau's Personalised Pet Hotel

Guide Dogs SA is building a state-of-the-art purpose built pet hotel at the Adelaide Airport.

Located on the airport’s western edge, adjacent to Tapleys Hill Road, the hotel will provide a range of accommodation options for dogs, cats and other pets. 

“Its strategic location close to the airport, adjacent to our glorious metropolitan beaches and Adelaide Shores will be so convenient for inbound and outbound travellers,” said former Chief Executive Kate Thiele. All profits from the pet hotel will help us fund more services to help change the lives of people living with disability."

Guide Dogs SA will run the hotel which was designed by Walter Brooke Architects. It was officially named named Beau’s Personalised Pet Hotel after the first guide dog officially trained in Australia.

A little black Kelpie x Fox Terrier of unknown heritage, Beau was matched to Mrs Elsie Mead in August 1952, and provided Elsie with 13 years of faithful service as her Guide Dog. 

As Elsie’s loyal companion, Beau provided independence and safety and, according to Mrs Mead, “opened the portals of a new life for me and bridged the gulf that normally separates the sighted and the sightless”.
