Posted Date: 12/18/2012

NEWS RELEASE CONTACT: Danielle Tate, 972-237-8578,  


GRAND PRAIRIE—Citizens are giving the gift of comfort to Grand Prairie Animal Shelter dogs and cats this holiday season through the Kuranda “Donate a Bed” program. By ordering online at, the public can have a dog or cat bed shipped in their name directly to the Prairie Paws Animal Shelter at a special 28 percent donation discount.

"We have had an outstanding response," said Animal Services Manager Danielle Tate. "Our goal is to have 60 dog beds and 25 cat beds by the end of the year, and people have donated 40 dog beds so far. Generous individuals are giving the gift of comfort to our shelter dogs and cats."

During the month of December Prairie Paws Animal Shelter has a gift of its own to give.

“We love our animal guests ‘like the Dickens,’” Tate said. “So much so that we have great expectations that we can reduce the number of animals at the shelter by giving most away during December.”

The shelter is running a “Love Pets Like the Dickens” adoption special through Dec. 29. Regular price adoptions are $70, but Dec. 1-29, big dogs and cats are free and small dogs are $20.

For more information on how to give the gift of a dog/cat bed or how to receive the gift of the December adoption discount, visit, call 972-237-8575, or stop by the Prairie Paws Animal Shelter, 2222 W. Warrior Trail.
