The nonprofit will buy the type of beds seen at left. They keep dogs off the cold, hard floor and are recommended by veterinarians for dogs with joint problems. Plus they are easy to sterilize and hard for dogs to chew up, so they could be in use for many years at the city’s animal shelter.

Dogs need 12-14 hours of sleep a day, and they sometimes lose sleep in a shelter environment because of fear and discomfort. So the beds could help shelter dogs to be at their best and find homes more easily, which aligns with the nonprofit’s mission of helping to bridge the gap between homeless pets and people who could adopt them.
