Peaceful Passings Senior Animal Rescue: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

We received seven pet beds; they are used in our crates for pet bedding and the large one is used in our living room for a "crash pad" for senior dogs.

It provided durable, study, washable bedding for our senior animals, bringing them comfort and care. We love the beds, expect them to last forever, and the dogs love them! What is better than bring a senior, hospice, or special-needs animal comfort after coming out of a rural shelter with limited funding, and little comfort?

How many pets did this grant help?

Seven, if I count correctly; possibly eight. Some of our bedding is in the wash as we speak.

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

Rosie, our 15- or 20-year-old hound, was the dog of an owner who died. She was the husband’s dog. The wife later went into hospice care and the family placed Rosie with us. Since the woman had Alzheimer’s disease, she could not remember how old this dog was, but originally, we took her in as a 20-year-old — amazing! Rosie lived in a rural area of Virginia near the West Virginia boarder — coal mining country — and the nearest vet was 1 1/2 hours away. Finally, she has found her forever home.
