Three years ago, Mission Driven was able to donate 3000 beds. This donation gave a brand new bed to every homeless dog and cat living in animal shelters across Kansas.
Now, we aim higher.
Our goal is to provide every homeless pet living in an animal shelter a warm, comfortable bed to sleep on this winter across Kansas and Missouri. We would start with the smallest, most rural organizations and work our way up.
Mission Driven will be able to donate 6251 beds to shelter pets across Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Indiana and Illinois. These beds were purchased from IKEA.
Why an IKEA bath mat? The mats keep the animals dry, warm, and cozy and improve their chances of adoption. These ultra-soft mats fit perfectly on a Kuranda bed. They are incredibly absorbent and easy to launder, allowing volunteers to spend less time doing laundry and more time with the animals.
6251 Beds Have Been Donated.
157 Animal Shelters Will Receive Beds in a Total of 7 States (MO, KS, IA, AR, OK, IN, IL).
Thank you for everyone who recommended an animal shelter to receive beds.
Scott Poore heads to a Kansas City animal shelter to deliver warm, cozy beds to the homeless dogs and cats living there. Join the mission, donate a bed.
Donations raised on GoFund Me from individuals.
Donations raised from corporate and celebrity sponsors.
Thanks to Hills Pet, this is our cost to ship the beds to the shelters.
Eric Fisher, of the Kansas City Chiefs, sends Mission Driven a surprise donation towards the campaign, Beds for Shelter Pets.
Fisher's donation of $2500 was matched by the Hunt Family Foundation & the Kansas City Chiefs to bring a total donation of $5000.
Watch to see Eric's message to Mission Driven and the KC community.
No better way to start this than to say thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.
On December 2, 2020, the bed mats left IKEA and headed to Hills Pet where they will be boxed and distributed to 157 animal shelters in 7 states- Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Indiana, and Illinois.
6251 shelter dogs and cats will have have a warm, cozy bed.
