DOG BED DONATION DRIVE
Cedar City has a beautiful new Animal Adoption Center but it
is missing something that is desperately needed…beds for the animals. The facility does not have anything for the
animals to lie on. Donors have graciously
given blankets, towels and sheets but they are put on the floor.
Think about it.
Kennels are cleaned and disinfected daily and the animals have to sit on
the cold, damp, floor. If the kennels
haven’t been cleaned yet, they are sitting in a soiled area. The animals don’t have an option of anywhere
to go, but a soft bed that keeps them off the ground would make a world of
difference in their lives.
Some of the homeless pets may be in the shelter for weeks
and even months. A bed can help give comfort, making their situation less
stressful and more comfortable. Less
stressed animals can then show their true personalities and are more adoptable.
Animal Rescue Aid is a non-profit corporation that offers
shelters & rescue groups beds at an affordable price to make it feasible to
place high quality rust proof aluminum framed beds in a facility. The beds range in price depending upon
size. ARA is offering to pay all
shipping costs and every donation is tax deductible. The beds are made in the USA.
Cedar City Animal Adoption Center is in need of 28 medium
sized beds. The beds measure 35” X 23” X 8”.
If donating online, you can go directly to the Animal Rescue
Aid website at animalrescueaid.org and then click on “Donate to a Shelter”. The registered “shelter” is Friends of
