BECKLEY - A local agency is asking volunteers to help build beds for shelter dogs Saturday.
RESA 1 is sponsoring the project as part of this year's West Virginia Day of Service. Organizers hope to build 50 elevated dog beds for the Humane Society of Raleigh County.
Shelter officials said the beds will give a level of comfort to the dogs and promote their well-being.
Selina Vickers of RESA 1 said the volunteers can also stop by the shelter afterward to see how their hard work will help countless animals. “It's just going to be a really great day,” she said.
Build a Bed for a Shelter Dog will take place at the YMCA Soccer Complex in Beckley Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To register to volunteer or for more information, e-mail email@example.com or call 304-256-4712 ext. 1120.
