Beds For Homeless Pets

Donation protected
My name is Scott Poore and I’m an advocate in Kansas City for homeless pets. I volunteer in shelters every day and have personally witnessed all of the hardships these animals face. As a result, I’ve made it my mission to improve shelter pets’ lives in every way possible.

Every dog and cat deserves a comfortable bed to sleep in, but despite their best efforts, not every shelter is able to provide that to them. I frequently see animals sleeping on cement floors, in metal kennels, or—if they’re lucky—sheets of newspaper. Many of these animals have spent their lives on the street, fighting to stay alive. How wonderful would it be if, upon entering a shelter, these animals could have a nice, comfy bed to sleep in while they wait for their furever home? Shelter life can be scary for these pets. having their very own comfortable place to sleep is the first step in improving their lives. Every homeless pet deserves a comfortable bed and I’d like your help to provide that to them.

Visiting animal shelters every day, I see the constant battle they face with laundry. Washing machines and dryers run 24/7 because most shelters are using sheets, towels, and blankets to line the kennels. Some shelters aren’t using any bedding at all, because they cant keep up with laundry…which breaks my heart. On a recent trip to IKEA I came across some incredibly comfortable and affordable bath mats that would make perfect bedding. These mats are absorbent, easy to store and machine washable. My goal for this fundraiser is to collect enough mats for every kennel in every shelter in the United States. I wont be able to accomplish my goal without your help, so please find it in your heart to make a donation. Thank you!
