Two puppies had been found recently in a local rest stop and brought to the shelter quite cold, hungry and frightened. They were able to stay in the lobby area comfortably on their PLAY Pet Beds while awaiting medical evaluation and foster care availability. Probably not the best use of the beds for play and not exactly what the company meant when naming them; however, the pic of this puppy a short while later shows how hardy they are 🙂
