Kuranda beds are sturdy and long lasting, so you will be providing a lasting gift for a dog today and another tomorrow.

They can make a big difference for even one dog who, for the most part spends 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a concrete floor.

Donations are offered at a special discounted price and shipped directly to the Elk Country Animal Shelter.

Donate a bed in your name, or send one as a gift in the name of a friend or family member.  We will mail a personalized Gift Card acknowlegement directly to them from you.
