Wise Animal 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. beds were distributed to foster homes so that when in foster, a dog has a bed on which to lay their head.

This grant was especially helpful in these trying times. We were able to distribute beds to new foster homes as we prepared to pull 15 dogs from a local shelter.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Pebbles (first photo) was pulled from a local shelter at the end of March, right at the height of the coronovirus. She had been in the shelter for several months, living in a kennel with cement floors. Pebbles loved this bed so much, she slept on it every night and would sit on it and wait for her treats! Pebbles has since been adopted and is living the life with her new mom!

Larry (second photo) is our hospice Chihuahua who can never find a comfortable space to lie. He began to chose lying on his new bed, which become the one place he loved to eat his cheese.

Phoebe (third and fourth photos) lived a hard life in a local shelter and found much-needed comfort lying on her bed. She loved the fact this bed was so lightweight that it was able to move to her favorite places — the couch and under the kitchen table — while everyone worked from home (and close to the treats)!
