Upper Rio Grande Animal Society: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

The ten Special Edition Chill Pads were used to keep the shelter dogs warm during the cold winter months.

It has been a very cold winter and the Chill Pads came at the right time to keep the dogs warm. It is very difficult to keep warm bedding available for the dogs, and it is very expensive to buy. The shelter has to rely on donations to keep a supply of bedding for the dogs. Most of the time we use blankets, rugs, pillows and occasionally we receive dog beds. The shelter was thrilled to receive this grant award.

Edward is a 2-month-old Blue Heeler mix that was found on the street and brought into the Conour Animal Shelter by an individual. He is fortunate to have been found because of his age and the cold weather. He is such a cute precious little guy. He loves to lay on his Chill Pad to keep him warm.
