The Issue: Shelter Dogs Sleeping on Cold Concrete Floors
Dogs living in shelters can spend months waiting to be adopted. Most shelter dogs sleep in kennels with concrete floors, which can be exceptionally uncomfortable, even with blankets.
The Campaign: Purchase Raised Beds for Shelter Dogs
If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, matched to become $1,000, then Animal Aid Foundation can purchase 100 raised pet beds for dogs at shelters across the United States that do not euthanize. Z-Matrix Solutions will match all donations up to $1,000. Each additional $20 raised will provide a raised bed for two more shelter dogs.
All donations will be matched up to a $1,000 total by Z-Matrix Solutions. You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
Animal Aid Foundation
Animal Aid Foundation works each day to place lost or unwanted pets in permanent homes through rescue and community-outreach programs. One day, the organization hopes to open a no-kill shelter to help reduce pet overpopulation and provide an alternative to shelters that practice euthanasia.
On a typical day, Animal Aid Foundation volunteers might review pet-adoption applications, transport shelter animals to the veterinarian for vaccinations, or remove animals from shelters with high euthanasia rates and place them in foster care. Volunteers also deliver pet food to low-income families and help run community-outreach programs that provide necessities such as bedding and doghouses.
