Man Buys a New Dog Bed for Every Single Dog in the Shelter!

It’s true, sometimes shelters can seem a bit of a sad place to be.  When Stuart Edge went to visit a particular shelter, he noticed right away that unfortunately, there weren’t any comfy beds on which the dogs could sleep.  He knew he couldn’t let that stand, so he went and bought one for every kennel, so all the dogs could have one.  Their reaction is one of pure joy!  Check this out…

  1. There are tears of joy running down my face. I financially couldn’t do that all at once, but I am inspired to buy a few doggie beds every month and take them to my local shelter. Thank you for this inspiration, he is a wonderful human being!

  3. I was at a kennel yesterday looking for a cat. Terrible conditions. Some dont care, other dont have the money etc.Im 73 , no, money, but i still manage to buy cans or bags of food, litter, bleach, paper towels etc to try and help the shelters out.. Told them i didnt like certain things, about the shelter, like , matted cats, wet food in the bowls that was sitting to long .. Told them to try and get more volunteers to try and help.. If i were able, i’d help, i love animals,,Very depressed when i left., Please help, if you can, DONT SEND MONEY, If you buy STUFF, you know its going to be used. PLEASE HELP. You will feel good.

    • Bless you Tony for being so generous. Sometimes shelters are woefully understaffed and under-funded, especially the no-kill shelters. The high kill shelters get a budget from their respective city/town and have paid staff. No-kill shelters depend on the generosity of the public. They are staffed by volunteers and funds come from adoption fees, donations, fundraisers and bequeaths. For people who are upset about shelter conditions in your community, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!! Demand from your authorities to fund more money toward the shelters in their area. Whenever budget talks come to fruition, the public is always upset when funds are geared for altruistic reasons, like building a shelter or improving an existing one. The outrage to the politicians is palpable. Well folks, you cannot have it both ways. If you won’t allow your politicians to designate these funds, maybe by way of higher taxes, don’t be surprised when your shelters are in disrepair or worse.

    • Thank you Tony for your generosity. Most shelters operate on a woefully inadequate budget. If they’re a high kill shelter, they have paid staff and a budget from their city/town/government. A no kill shelter gets funds from NO ONE from local, state or government. They exist solely on adoption fees, donations, fundraisers and bequeaths. No kill shelters are usually the ones that are inadequate in every way, because when it comes time to earmark funds toward them, the general public screams that they don’t want higher taxes; they feel it’s a frivolous expense. Well folks, you cannot have it both ways. If you want better conditions, pony up some money and demand that your authorities use it accordingly.

      Qualified volunteers are difficult to come by. It takes a certain temperament to do this job and not everyone is accepted for various reasons. Even some who join don’t understand that if a shift is given, they have to show up ALL THE TIME. The dogs can’t walk themselves, or clean their kennels or feed themselves. Just because someone gets tickets to a ballgame, if a replacement volunteer cannot take over that shift, YOU HAVE TO SHOW UP! This is one of the most difficult jobs out there, but if one takes it seriously, the rewards far outweigh the pain.
