Kansas City Pet Project: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

The 10 dog bed we received from the 2021 P.L.A.Y Pet Bed Grant has provided dogs in our shelter a soft and comfortable play to rest and sleep.

This grant helped our dogs by reducing stress levels by providing relief from an uncomfortable concrete floor where we typically utilize blankets and towels.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Cleopatra (first photo) is a lovely 3-year-old Shih Tzu who wound up at KC Pet Project when she was brought in as a stray by a member of our community. She was so darling that she almost immediately had an early-bird hold placed upon her.

As we could tell Cleopatra had been very loved, we extended our stray hold from the typical five days to 10 to see if we could find her family. She spent those 10 days very comfortably on a bed. Cleopatra was adopted and is now a very spoiled and happy dog!
