Franklin Township Municipal Animal Shelter: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

Second Chance for Animals (SCFA), the volunteer organization that supports the Franklin Township Animal Shelter, was the recipient of a P.L.A.Y. product grant for 10 Chill Pad Pet Mats. The mats were worth $538.

These pet mats were perfect for the winter months for the shelter's dogs, and a few cats! They kept the dogs warm in their concrete runs and helped cut down on their stress levels. The animals had a warm, comfortable place to relax amidst the noise and chaos caused by other animals and human visitors.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant helped 10 animals at a time. The mats were used for more than 10 total.

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

This bed is a particular favorite of Max, a 15-year-old Pekingese, who loves to pose on his Chill Pad like the little king that he is! Max can also relax on the mat and ease his old joints. Max has a few health issues, so he’s more than happy to just “chill out.” Max is still available for adoption. His profile can be found at
