Clay County Florida Shelter Gets Decked Out!
Yes! A dog-bed building party! You may not know, but when FHF fulfills a shelter or rescue wish list, that list includes beds of all sizes -- big donuts, small poofy balls, and yes, those that need building with tools! Our FHF team had SO MUCH FUN with the William Taber Salon team who not only bought Dog Bed Fairy Books that parlayed into funding, but also donated their time. Together with the Friends of Clay County and FHF, The Clay County Animal Care & Control Center was fully outfitted with a nearly $5,000 donation of dog beds, so their rescue animals find comfort while waiting for their FUREVER homes. Dog Bed Fairies everywhere - We Thank You! Your purchase of our book, "Is it True, They Call You the Dog Bed Fairy?" is helping shelter dogs become more adoptable, through warm beds to sleep on. Visit our Dog Bed Fairy Book page for more details if you'd like to become a Dog Bed Fairy.
If You Had 70 Seconds To Be Rescued
It takes most potential adopters less than 70 seconds to evaluate a dog in the kennel according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Euthanasia is the leading cause of death of our companion dogs in shelters, as many dogs are passed over in that short time frame that families take to evaluate them.
What can a simple dog bed do? It saves lives! A warm dog bed helps animals feel less scared and more safe, letting their personality shine over their fear in those 70 seconds. The Dog Bed Fairy project helps animals find furrever homes.
"PEOPLE LIKE YOU GUYS MOTIVATE US ALL TO COME IN EACH AND EVERY DAY AND DO OUR BEST TO FIND HOMES FOR OUR HOMELESS PETS AND BE BETTER AMBASSADORS FOR THE CITY OF GARLAND."
