A Great Idea for Pets in Shelters – Armchairs!
I can see Northern Colorado getting into this. Too often, I have seen discarded chairs on the side of the road. Here's a much better use for those chairs.
A no-kill animal shelter in Galesburg, Illinois has received a huge response for their need of armchairs for the pets they have in their facility.
It all started when some of the pets they have were gravitating to the open armchairs in the office. They decided that they should get more chairs for their furry residents. After posting a 10-second video that received 15-million hits, people began to donate chairs they no longer wanted. The response was so big that they provided chairs for the cats as well. The folks who work at the shelter say it has made a noticeable difference in the attitude of the pets.
Another shelter in Idaho has also adopted this campaign.
