Seeking Your Help Please

The “Friends of the Shelter” are working on a project to build elevated dog beds for our local Monroe County Animal Shelter located off South Raisinville Road. These dog beds are made of PVC pipe and heavy fabric. The shelter dogs now sleep on plastic risers that look like steppers that are used for exercising. The elevated dog beds offer the dogs a comfortable place to wait until their owner’s find them or they are adopted out to their forever homes.

The idea for this project came from a group called the Columbus Dog Connection. This great group of people have made and donated more than 900 elevated dog beds for their area. Click Here to read about what they have done and to see the plans for what we are doing as a group to make elevated dog beds for our own local animal shelter.

You can help by donating items needed to build the beds… You can see what is needed by Clicking Here> Elevated Dog Bed Plans. Of course you can certainly make a monetary donation and those are most welcome. The cost to make each bed is right around $15.00. We are finding that replacing the fabric will be an on going task…
