Pawsitive Tails Dog Rescue: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

The product was Chill Pads from P.L.A.Y. for our fosters to use for our rescue dogs/puppies! We are a foster-based rescue. Each one of our rescue dogs/puppies is in a foster home with a loving family. These Chill Pads were great for the foster homes were they stayed until they were adopted.

It helped provide a soft, comfy place for our rescue dogs/puppies. A lot of our dogs came from outside and poor living conditions. This was a nice addition to some of our foster homes to provide a much more comfortable sleeping place for our pups.

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

Liesel is a 4-month-old puppy who was found as a stray in Oklahoma. She was quickly pulled into rescue by Pawsitive Tails Dog Rescue and transported to Kansas City to find her forever home. On her journey to freedom and finding her best life, she was exposed to the deadly parvovirus. She began to become very sick and was boarded into a parvo ward, where she received around-the-clock care for several days. After about a week in the hospital, she was finally feeling better and had made an amazing recovery! She then made her way to her new foster home and this is where she was presented with her very own P.L.A.Y. Chill Pad. She went from living on the streets to a not-so-comfortable enclosed kennel area in the hospital to her very own Chill Pad! She absolutely enjoys spending her days sharing it with the other dogs her new foster home, or just lying around and relaxing. Thank you P.L.A.Y. for adding just a touch of coziness to Liesel’s amazing recovery!

She ended up being adopted to a very loving family.
