Donations Needed

ASD is strongly encouraging donations of Kuranda beds of all sizes for our doggie friends, There are lots of benefits for pets sleeping on Kuranda Beds, including:

  • Kuranda Beds are the superior choice in shelters and rescues due to their durability and added protection of a 1-Year Chew Proof Warranty.
  • Shelters prefer Kuranda beds since they are easy to clean and sanitize, minimizing the spread of infectious disease.
  • The elevated sleep surface helps regulate body temperature, both in warmer and cooler months.
  • The orthopedic design alleviates pressure points on joints.
  • Quality sleep reduces stress which keeps animals healthy and feeling good while they await their forever homes.
