Beds for our foster dogs and cats
We go through a lot of beds with the animals we bring in, and the foster animals loved them.

Chipper is one of Friends of Noah-WI’s foster dogs (he’s also the brown dog in the picture). Chipper came from a terrible hoarding situation and had a hard time settling into his foster home. He spent his time hiding most of the time behind the couch. He would occasionally venture out sometimes, but then run back in. So, his foster mom put one of your pet beds on a chair and he walked up reluctantly to sniff it. He decided, after carefully sniffing it numerous times, that it was OK. It’s now his “safe spot” where he goes to snuggle in and be safe from the world.
The other picture is Winston, who was dropped at an over-crowded shelter because his owner simply didn’t want him any more. In his foster home the other resident dogs had their own beds, but Winston didn’t have his own. So, he snuggled in and claimed his spot as soon as it was put on the floor!
