Springfield Humane Society: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

We received several of the P.L.A.Y. beds, which will be used in our kennels to keep our dogs nice and comfy!

The dogs were much more comfortable than lying directly on the floor, or on one of the typical hard-type beds. I believe that this, along with other tricks we use, helps their mental health quite a bit.

How many pets did this grant help?

When the beds came in, we had a total of 17 dogs in our kennels.

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

This is Herbie. He was one of two litters totaling 15 puppies. All of the puppies ended up getting parvovirus, so the beds were a real boost in keeping them comfortable and warm through their recovery. Herbie DID get adopted and, as you can see, he’s doing just fine now!
