Beds for a Better Life

BENEFITING: SPCA, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jul 03, 2017
This is for our Girl Scout Troop 70811 Silver Award. We are Cadette Girl Scouts who have come up with a project to help our local SPCA shelter. There are three of us working on this project; Ansley T., Anna U., and Kendall M..
This project consists of building Orthopedic Kuranda-type dog beds that help dogs who are waiting to be adopted. These beds are off-the-ground beds that give comfort and relieve stress on joints. By sleeping on an elevated surface, it distributes the dogs weight evenly, eliminates pressure points on their elbows, hips, and shoulders and dogs wake up feeling happy and healthy.
We've contacted the SPCA and they've stated they have a need for 50 beds for the shelter, so we plan to make 50 individual beds to earn our Silver Award.
The material costs to make the beds totals $1,590.25. A breakdown of these expenses can be provided upon request.
Our deadline for this project is September 1, 2017.
