Volunteers requesting help purchasing beds for furry friends

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Volunteers at the Jackson County Animal Shelter are encouraging South Mississippians to buy new Kuranda beds for cats and dogs who are waiting for their forever homes. The prices of the beds range from $34 to $59.

The group has already donated more than a dozen of the beds so the animals can sleep comfortably. They hope some generous people in the community would also dig deep in their pockets and give to the displaced animals.

"Really, it is a more comfortable bed for them, and it is just going to make it more comfortable and at ease here for their hopefully very short stay," said Marlana Nacol, a volunteer at the shelter. "It gets them off the floor, and it gets them into a nice warm, cozy bed."

For more information, call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 228-497-6350.
