"We were thrilled to make this donaion happen," says Patty. "The project normally donates 10 or 20 beds at a time. We hope word of the project reaches more rescues and shelters."  Patty welcomes any dog rescue to get in touch with her regarding dog beds and other comfort items for dogs that she makes. Donations of fabric, comforters and pillows are always appreciated. Volunteers are welcome, which without, could not have made this amazing donation of 100 beds possible.
