Paws Tee Shirt Dog Bed
Make a comfy Paws Tee Shirt Dog Bed from a new dollar store or recycled tee shirt to donate to a shelter or for your own special pet. Dogs love to curl up in a soft, cuddly bed when they settle down to sleep and it will give them a sense of comfort when waiting in a shelter for their forever home. The shelter can then send the bed home with the dog as a security blanket to help them get adjusted. Check with your shelter first before assuming they will accept this type of donation, and any regulations they may have. Take a look at 9 Of the Best Dog Blankets to Make and Donate from our sister site at DIY to Donate for more ideas.
Trivia: Research has shown that many dogs prefer classical music. It has been found that harp music can be a natural sedative. Source: SPCA- 7 Proven Ways to Calm Your Anxious Dog
