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

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

ABR received P.L.A.Y. beds for dogs in our rescue kennel in Hewitt, TX.

The number of ABR boxer rescues has been very high this year, so the population of the ABR kennel has remained over 75%, with many dogs waiting for adoption at the kennel for weeks or months. The ABR kennel is clean and safe, and ABR staff and volunteers provide rescued dogs with great care. Each dog at the kennel has an elevated bed, time outside, and plenty of food and fresh water, but life in the kennel can still be stressful. The Petfinder Foundation's grant of P.L.A.Y. beds provided ABR kennel dogs with added comfort and security during the journeys to their forever families.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Moochie (first photo) is a beautiful, fawn-colored 8-year-old male boxer who has been a resident of the ABR kennel in Hewitt, Texas, since April 2021. Moochie loves all people, but is a little picky about his dog friends, so it’s been difficult to find him a foster home. He would love a forever family to take walks and cuddle with, but while he waits at the kennel, he is much more comfortable with his soft fluffy P.L.A.Y bed from the Petfinder Foundation (second photo). Thank you! You can meet Moochie here.
