Have a heart, donate a bed

Posted on December 21, 2010


Please help out a great cause that my friend Sarah created!!


All I want for Christmas:

Imagine sleeping on cold, hard concrete. It’s what hundreds of dogs at the South LA Animal Shelter endure 24/7 while waiting for someone to adopt them. Every day, about a dozen of them will never get adopted, and will unfortunately spend their last night on earth on cement. While it’s not always possible for everyone to take home a dog for Christmas, we CAN make their stay at the shelter more bearable this year. How great would it be if every dog at the South LA shelter had a comfy, warm bed to sleep on at night?!

This particular shelter has approximately 140 cages, with multiple dogs in each. We want to outfit each cage with a durable, water-resistant bed. Unfortunately, most store-bought beds won’t work. The dogs will ruin them and they will be thrown out; making it difficult for new dogs to have a bed.

But, there’s this company that makes beds specifically designed for shelters, and they’re offering them at a discount. Kuranda will offer one of these durable, reusable beds for $52- giving us a $10 discount.

The beds aren’t cheap, but they are built to last with a warranty included. Can you help? Maybe this season you could consider:

■Have a friend or loved one who loves animals? Giving a truly thoughtful gift by donating a bed in their honor
■Instead of spoiling your precious pup this year with another pile of chew toys and yummy snacks- donate a bed in Fido or Fluffy’s name
■Ask for a donation as your own gift this year
You will get a card thanking you or your loved one in return. Here are the ways you can help:
