GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Bubba’s Beds for Shelter Friends, a nonprofit that provides orthopedic, chew-proof, and easy-to-clean beds for shelter pets, donated 100 Kuranda beds, a special type of rugged, easy-to-sanitize kennel bed that is chew-proof and comfortable to Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center.

This is the largest donation of its kind made by Bubba’s Beds since its inception in 2017. The donation comes just before the winter season to ensure the dogs have a safe, dry place to rest that is off the cement floor. 

“We are extremely grateful for Bubba’s Beds’ generosity as we transition into winter months and colder weather,” Freeholder Jonathan Young, liaison to the Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center, said in a press release. “None of us would let our pets spend the night on a concrete floor, and the pets in our care at Homeward Bound are cared for the same way. These beds will help keep our dogs warm and dry as they wait to find their new forever home.”

Formerly Camden County Animal Shelter, Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center is the largest open admission shelter in the region, serving more than 5,000 abused, homeless and neglected animals annually. It offers low cost vaccinations for owned pets, spay/neuter surgeries for community cats, and work with local county officials to ensure the health and safety of homeless and feral companion animals.

The beds arrived fully-built by the staff and volunteers of Bubba’s Beds and were immediately put to use in Homeward Bound’s dog kennels.

Bubba’s Beds for Shelter Friends is a 100% volunteer group dedicated to giving comfort to shelter animals while promoting a cruelty-free, compassionate lifestyle towards all animals.
