Wish Bone Canine Rescue: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We were the recipients of 20 Chill Pads offered through P.L.A.Y.'s Warm Bellies Voters' Choice Poll.
Being able to have these comfortable landing spots for the dogs in our care has enhanced and enriched their lives, not only at the shelter, but also out in the community. We use the beds in the crates at our weekly community adoption events so that, even while they're crated at an event, the dogs are on comfortable beds.
How many pets did this grant help?
It helps 20 dogs at a time and as dogs get adopted, the Chill Pads are assigned to new dogs.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Oscar came to us badly matted and needed to be shaved down. His skin had sore spots from scratching at the mats. He was pretty miserable. The Chill Pads enabled him to have a soft spot to lie down instead of on the kennel floor or the bare Kuranda bed. When we took him to his first community adoption event, we took along his Chill Pad. He absolutely loved it and, because he was so comfortable, he made a big positive impression on all the people he met. Oscar was adopted by his forever family that week!
