My friend, Robyn started project71 when she was inspired while visiting the local animal shelter for inspiration. The dogs were laying on concrete floors. She came up with a great idea for mod dog beds. She is freaky for all things mod. She designed a bed that can be used in the shelters, then when the dogs are adopted out, they get to take their beds with them. It is waterproof and strong and designed to be attractive and something people would want in their homes (especially a mod home :) )



A prototype was made and recently she and a collaborator did some tweaking and made it hypoallergenic and used stronger threads and stitchingl  I love this bed. I love this idea. I LOVE the heart and passion she has put into this project. These beds will be ready to ship the first week of May. She just started this in December. Do you know how amazing that is? When I get a dog, my little baby will SO have one.

She recently talked to someone high up with the SPCA, and they are talking about carrying the beds, too.

I do not have a dog yet ( and won't for quite a while) but she does have some other things for the project I can use. On Etsy, her project71 shop has a necklace and

  

I love what she wrote in the description:

when anyone asks what you are wearing, tell them:

"i love dogs & so does project71"
"i want to help spread the word about adopting from shelters & rescues"
"spaying & neutering your pets is vital to controlling the overpopulated shelters"
"this is my prayer symbol for all the shelter dogs (& cats!)"

Any of you out there that work with rescues and shelters, if you would, check out her site and maybe suggest these transition beds in your area. Her contact information is on the pages.
