Dogs in This Shelter Each Get An Armchair or Recliner

This is the life! Check out the video…

Have you ever had a favorite chair that was also your DOG’S favorite place to sit?  If so, you’ll appreciate this . . .

There’s a no-kill animal shelter in Galesburg, Illinois.   A 10-second video they posted on Monday has racked up over 15 million views on Facebook.

It shows three dogs in their cages.  And each one has its own armchair or recliner to sleep on.

The director says it started when a dog they keep in the lobby started sleeping on a chair when people weren’t using it.  He loved it so much, they decided ALL the dogs deserved a chair.  So they got a few more.

Then after the video when viral, a BUNCH of people started donating old chairs.  They’ve gotten so many in the last week, they’ve even given them to a few cats.

Employees say it’s actually made a noticeable difference, and the dogs seem much more relaxed.

Now the idea is spreading, and at least one other shelter in Idaho is doing the same thing.

Speaking of fur babies waiting for a home, come join me at the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society’s “Whiskers and Tails Gala” on Sat, April 14!
