Melissa's Second Chances: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

The pet beds were used in and out of kennels for dogs housed in the rescue.

We love these pet beds and the dogs love them too! We prefer to have our dogs in foster homes, but sometimes we can't immediately find them a foster and they stay in the rescue. When they are staying at the rescue, our goal is to provide our dogs with a low-stress and comfortable environment. The P.L.A.Y. beds are soft and comfortable and hold up to multiple washings. This allows us to reuse the beds as new dogs come in to the rescue.

How many pets did this grant help?

We took in 140 dogs in the month of April and at any point in time had 8-15 dogs housed in the rescue. May and June have been busy months, as well!

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

Haddie, a Yorkie mix (first three photos), loved to hang out with the girls in the office. These photos were taken right before she met her new forever family — you can see how excited she was to meet them. Her new family, with three young children, fell in love with her spunky personality and came back the following day to adopt her.

Margo, a Chihuahua mix (fourth and fifth photos), is one of our newer residents. While she looks serious in her photos, she has a bubbly personality and zest for life. She met her new family today and will get to go home with them as soon as she is spayed. She can’t wait!
