Metro East Humane Society: Grant Report

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

Funds from an Adoption Options in Action grant were used to purchase 10 large Kuranda dogs beds for our indoor kennels.

Due to anxiety and boredom, many dogs destroy blankets or soft beds and, therefore, are left to rest on the cold, hard cement floor. The indestructible Kuranda dog beds provide a more comfortable resting place as well as a greater feeling of security for the dogs. Ultimately, dogs who have a comfortable resting place and feel more secure appear more relaxed and are more desirable to potential adopters.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Patches, a 3-year-old terrier mix, is one of the staff favorites! He is a couch-potato dog, is quiet in a home, potty-trained and loves everyone he meets. Patches loves to rest on his Kuranda bed with his “baby,” a toy ball he rarely parts with. Visit Patches at
