MSPCA Boston Adoption Center: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

We used them for our shelter pets -- cats and dogs -- to help make their stay more comfortable while they waited for their forever homes.

The beds were super comfortable and helped our adoptable animals relax and take some well-deserved cat naps while they waited to find their forever homes.

One pet at the shelter is Zoe. From Zoe’s Petfinder profile: “Hello! I’m Zoe, an incredibly sweet-natured, spayed, 11-year-old, 74-lb. female pit bull terrier mix. I’m here at the MSPCA because I was not allowed at the last place I lived and the landlord would not let me stay there. I’ve gained many admirers here at the adoption center, but I sure am looking forward to finding my forever home! Don’t be fooled by my age (what’s that saying again? Age is just a number?), I am a spirited and playful girl! In fact, I love a good game of fetch. I also enjoy going for walks and being out and about. Most of all, I love being around people. I will make a great companion for someone or a family looking for a mellow, fun, and sweet new best friend. I have lived with kids before and did great with them, so I could go to a home with children as long as they have experience with dogs. I’d probably be most comfortable in a home where I’m the only pet. So, what do you say? Can you already picture me in your life? Well, come on over and meet me today!” Meet Zoe:
