Help get the dogs off the cold concrete at the Guilford County Animal Shelter!!!  (watch video)

The Volunteers of the Guilford County Animal Shelter in Greensboro, NC are seeking donations to purchase dog benches for this high-volume animal shelter.  During a July 2013 Agricultural Department inspection, all the benches had to be removed due to being old and chewed.  Now, all the dogs in the shelter have to lay on the concrete floor.  The cost to replace all benches is very expensive, as the adoption area alone for dogs, has 117 kennels.  Sometimes, dogs have remained in the adoption area as long as 14 months!!  That is a long time to lay on the concrete.  When you add in the kennels in the dog intake area and sick bay, it adds up to almost 300 benches needed!!
Please consider donating to this cause.  The shelter has asked that we provide a specific durable dog bench that will last and pass inspection.  The current estimate for each bench is $90.  We are currently testing a cheaper option, but it is still expensive and may not be approved. 
The Guilford County Animal Shelter is one of the finest shelters in the state, keeping dogs up for adoption a long time and providing adoption hours 7 days a week!!!  Still, there are budgetary limits and the volunteers are exhausting every avenue to help our dogs.  Your donation will go towards a product that will be used by many dogs over its lifetime.  This shelter takes in THOUSANDS of dogs every year.  Let's get them off the concrete while they wait for loving homes!!!!
