Humane Society of Marion County: Orvis Dog Enrichment Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

15 sherpa fleece Kuranda dog bed pads

Kuranda dog bed pads are wonderful and they fit on the Kuranda beds that we have for each dog. We had two pads that were donated to us for our senior dogs that we love and were very thankful for, but we wanted enough for each dog to have one, especially during the colder months. With the Orvis Animal Care Grant, we purchased a pad for each kennel so the dogs can be snuggly and comfortable on their beds. These pads are also great because they can be washed and reused for many dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?

15 and countless more, as they can be washed and reused for many dogs

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Tomato (first photo) is a sweet hound mix. She is enjoying her new Kuranda dog pad. Immediately after we put it on the bed, she climbed on with her favorite squeaky toy and snuggled in for the night! You can meet Tomato here.

Bowser, a Pyrenees/retriever mix, was just neutered in the picture below and he was recovering from the surgery. We got the pad just in time. You can see in the picture the shaved spot from his IV. The fleece Kuranda dog bed pad helped him to be comfortable and relax after surgery.

These beds are washable; therefore, they can be used for so many, many dogs during their stay with us prior to adoption. The fleece pads help to keep them comfortable. Not only are the dogs warm and snuggly lying on them, the pads are very soft too.
