When your a dog in a shelter, it must sometimes feel like you don’t really have anything to call your own.  So it’s extra important to provide these dogs with warm, comfortable beds.  Even if it makes things just the slightest bit more cozy, it’s a huge help.


That’s why Step Up USA got together for a fundraiser where they raised enough money to make and then donate 100 dog beds to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Center, in Arizona.  According to event organizers, it was one of the single biggest events they’ve seen.


Jill Smyros, founder of Step Up USA, said “There was like 100 people here. Kids and adults, and teens. It was awesome!  We’ve done a lot of things this year, but this is probably one of my favorites for sure.”
