Rejection Collection Boxer Rescue: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

The P.L.A.Y. pet beds were used to provide comfortable sleeping spots for 20 rescued boxers and boxer mixes in our foster homes.

This grant helped our organization by providing pet beds in foster homes. This saved the rescue money and provided clean, comfortable sleeping spots that each dog could call their own. For some dogs, this was the first time they had their very own soft, clean bed.

How many pets did this grant help?

21 (two puppies shared one bed -- see pics)

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

Tria (first photo) is a tripod who thoroughly enjoys a quick, comfy spot on which to rest her three legs! The P.L.A.Y. beds are great; they are lightweight and perfect to use inside the house or outside on the patio. Tria says this bed is pawsome! Tria has since found her loving forever home!

How do you calm down rambunctious, squirmy puppies (photos two through five)? Put them on a P.L.A.Y. bed! These two little male pups, Mackn and Cheez, were dumped on the doorstep of a vet clinic in Ohio along with their seven siblings at the tender age of one week old.

RCBR was contacted along with other rescues and, even though our mission is to rescue senior and special-needs boxers, we stepped up to the challenge and committed to two of the nine puppies (the other seven went to other rescues). These two little guys THRIVED and have since found their forever homes. The photos are of them snuggling on the P.L.A.Y. pet bed provided by this grant. Mackn and Cheez say THANKS!
