(Gloucester Township, NJ)(October 11, 2019)-– Through a generous grant from Bubba’s Beds for Shelter Friends, 100 dogs currently awaiting adoption won’t be sleeping on a cement floor tonight. One hundred Kuranda beds, a special type of rugged, easy-to-sanitize kennel bed that is chew-proof and comfortable, were delivered to Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center on Tuesday afternoon.
This is the largest donation of its kind made by Bubba’s Beds since its inception in 2017. The donation comes just before the winter season to ensure the dogs have a safe, dry place to rest that is off the cement floor.
“We are extremely grateful for Bubba’s Beds’ generosity as we transition into winter months and colder weather,” said Freeholder Jonathan Young, liaison to the Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center. “None of us would let our pets spend the night on a concrete floor, and the pets in our care at Homeward Bound are cared for the same way. These beds will help keep our dogs warm and dry as they wait to find their new forever home.”
The beds arrived fully-built by the staff and volunteers of Bubba’s Beds and were immediately put to use in Homeward Bound’s dog kennels.
