Humane Society needs help making dog beds

December 30, 2010

If you have a sewing machine and can sew a straight line, the Lawrence Humane Society could use your help.

The shelter, 1805 E. 19th St., has a large collection of used comforters that can easily be cut and sewed to make smaller dog beds. In doing so, one large comforter can be made into four, six or even more individual beds that can be used, washed and reused. Thanks to several volunteers, this project is already under way, but the Humane Society needs many more helpers so all of its homeless dogs can have a soft, warm bed every night.

If you can help, e-mail the shelter at events@lawrencehumane.org or call 843-6835.

---Kudos to Midge and the shelter! I am impressed that they are doing this. a great way to stretch resources.

and a dog needs this. a small comfort for a big heart.

as I write, Gnomedog has his head on my left leg.

what is the price of a dog?

what is the value of a dog?

these differ dramatically.

love your dog every day. help the dog that doesn't have someone yet.
