After Surgery or Dealing with Arthritis, Shelter Dogs Can Now Rest More Comfortably

Nico chills on his new Chill Pad.

Our partners at P.L.A.Y. (Pet Lifestyle and You) donate a Special Edition Chill Pad dog bed to a shelter pet for every Artist or Original Collection pet bed purchased (learn more here). So far they’ve given 260 homeless dogs warm places to sleep.

That includes Nico, above, and Duffy, right, at Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society in Brownsville, VT. We got this email from shelter manager Jackie Stanley:

“Please find attached pics of Nico enjoying some of his new favorite Chill Pads! Nico is a 3-year-old neutered male Pit Bull/Shepherd mix. He has gone through two surgeries to correct a torn ACL, and his Chill Pad makes his relaxing time much more comfortable.

Duffy gets comfortable.

“Duffy is a 12-year-old spayed female Westie. Duffy is particularly fond of the Chill Pads since she is highly arthritic!

“All of our dogs have been thoroughly enjoying the comfort of the Chill Pad mats. We are incredibly thankful to be the recipients of this gracious grant. We work very hard to make sure all of our animals remain safe, healthy and comfortable while they’re in our care. You definitely helped to make that easier!

“Many thanks from all of us at Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society … especially Nico and Duffy!”

Thanks for the update, Jackie, and thanks to P.L.A.Y. and everyone who purchased an Artist or Original Collection pet bed for their own pet so a shelter dog could rest easier!
