Voorhees Animal Orphanage Receives Answers to their Call for Help

Last Edited:

A local animal shelter is feeling the love this holiday season.

When cold weather hit earlier this month, the Voorhees Animal Orphanage looked in their storage sheds to see if they had any beds to keep the dogs off of the cold and drafty floor, but unfortunately, a few of the beds were in rough shape.

So they put out a call for help and the community answered.

With the help of generous donations from the community and the non-profit organization Bubba’s Beds for Shelter Friends, the shelter was able to get beds for each kennel.

Officials say the outpouring of love has been overwhelming and they are thrilled that these deserving pups will have comfy and warm beds to sleep on.

"It was like a Christmas miracle for us here, so everybody's just so thankful and we're really excited and we can't wait til the dogs are on their comfy beds tomorrow," Voorhees Animal Orphanage Kennel Manager, Laurie Ballard.

The donations helped purchased Kuranda beds which are elevated, durable beds designed to withstand heavy usage.

On Saturday, December 29th, a team of volunteers from Bubba’s and Kuranda USA will visit the shelter to deliver and assemble each of the beds on at no cost to the shelter.

The Voorhees Fire Department will be also be lending a helping paw to the cause.
