To improve the daily life of dogs at a shelter in Arizona, dozens of volunteers have responded to the call of an American association.
The life of a dog at the shelter is not the same as what he should have in a house, within a family . However, the volunteers and employees who work in the reception structures do what they can to help the four-legged residents to feel surrounded and loved. This is the case with this group of volunteers brought together by Jill Smyros , founder of the association Step Up USA .
The idea was to support the Animal Care and Control Center in Maricopa County , located in Phoenix , Arizona, and make the dogs living there a little more comfortable .
Jill Smyros therefore asked the inhabitants of Gilbert , still in Arizona, and the surrounding towns, to make raised beds for these canines. Many people responded to the call and $ 2,000 was collected, which made it possible to purchase the equipment needed to make 100 beds , reports The Dodo .
The next step was to build the said beds. The founder of Step Up USA made her home available to volunteers who, to her surprise, were around a hundred to come to her home. People of all ages, children, adolescents and adults, helped each other to complete the manufacture of beds , which were then installed at the refuge.

The dogs loved their new beds. As soon as they saw them, they jumped on them, wagging their tails in approval.
