Paws for Life Utah: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used the P.L.A.Y. pet beds for our shelter pets, and those in our boarding facility, as well as those in foster care. We are still using all of them -- they are so durable through the wash!
It allowed us to give the shelter pets a warm bed to sleep in rather than a cold shelter floor.

These adorable Pomeranian puppies were two of more than 160 that were rescued from a hoarding situation in Las Vegas. We transported a total of 17 Pomeranians to Paws for Life Utah and found every one of them a loving home. These two puppies needed medical care, and we were grateful that they had time to rest and relax on a P.L.A.Y. pet bed. The second picture is that of Lucy, a 12-year-old Chihuahua mix whom we rescued from an [open-admission] shelter in Los Angeles county. She needed medical care (surgery for a bilateral hernia and to remove several mammary tumors) and rested comfortably throughout her recovery on a P.L.A.Y. pet bed.
