Thanks to all who devote their life to this cause

My original post follows but first I have to reflect on the picture at the right – often I find the pictures on Facebook or someone sends them to me.  One day last week I was walking my “Snowball” at the mall – we go every day early in the morning.  On the ground we saw a back pack and underneath it was a bag of dog chow and some treats.  my immediate thought was that someone had dropped out a dog and left some food for it.  As I approached the bag a voice called out to me it was a man walking a beagle.  He explained he was from Tennessee and his wife had just taken the truck and went for water for the dogs that were in the truck.  They are part of a group who bring dogs from high kill shelters in the south to up north Connecticut.  They make this run about every 3-4 weeks.  This is why this picture is here.   We as animal lovers sometimes go the extra mile to save their lives.  KUDOS TO THEM AND THEIR ORGANIZATION.  We gave them our card and told them next time they are in the area we would like a call and we will arrange for them to have some beds.

I have had a setback.  Some items used in the production of our beds were removed from our workshop.  This happened lST and then the person who removed the items came forward and is now a helper.  We have also had a sewer volunteer to help us.  We have some cat towers that are available to any shelter that would want them.  We will be fabricating more beds, towers and hammocks.  Help is always needed and donations are always appreciated.  We will be supplying beds to a shelter in New Jersey & Washington.  Our goals are animal welfare no matter where you are located.

I am retired after working as an industrial mechanic for most of my work career. I am married have had animals friends almost my whole life. This project that I have taken on has given me more satisfaction than my whole work career. So far over 600 beds and 60 cat bunks or towers have been made and donated to various shelters. Some new items were dog bunk beds and cat hammocks. I sleep at night knowing that in a small way we have made a difference in the life of the animals who have received our beds. We have sent beds to Nebraska, Texas, State of Washington and New Jersey. We have helped Eagle Scouts in their projects and in turn they have helped us.
