Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

For two dog parents, Will and Deb, the creators of PLAY dog beds (http://www.petplay.com) the whole idea for their wonderful products was born out of necessity. It all started with an adorable, irresistible ball of fur — Momo the pug, their little bundle of joy. They wanted only the very best for her and giving her a great dog bed was an essential first step.

Finding a bed was certainly easy, they’re everywhere – in boutique pet stores, to even the 99cent store! But beds that are of high quality, have aesthetic appeal and are affordable are few and far between. So they partnered with a well-established manufacturer of children products for the US, Europe and Japan markets. That gave them the confidence to know that their beds at PLAY would be the best offered to a pet.

This same commitment of providing a warm spot for a restful pet’s sleep has extended beyond their own dog, and the dogs of their customers. Will and Deb decided to help homeless pets have warmer bellies. PLAY believes that every pet, regardless of whether they are a celebrity pooch or a pup waiting in a shelter for his forever home, deserves a warm and cozy place to sleep. To help as many homeless pets as possible, they partner with the Petfinder Foundation (http://www.petfinderfoundation.com) for a donation program — the Warm Bellies Initiative.

For every Artist or Original Collection pet bed purchased on http://www.PetPlay.com (or at participating retailers) PLAY donates a Special Edition Chill Pad to a pup in need. Simple as that. Although PLAY is based in San Francisco, they wanted to ensure that they help rescue groups and shelters around the country. So the Petfinder Foundation and PLAY determine which shelter or rescue group will receive the donation based on need and availability; each month they donate to a different region. If you have a shelter you would like to nominate, please email them at GivingBack@petplay.com.

Purchase one of their beautiful beds, available in sizes XS to XL. The exclusive Artist Collection pet beds are designed by San Francisco’s own David Collins. Every design is individually sketched and each top and side graphic is individually produced, a painstaking process compared to the traditional “repeating pattern” beds. This makes each bed its own masterpiece, perfectly crafted for style and comfort.

Their Chandelier Design is their bestseller, made from 100% natural cotton the covering is soft, breathable and allergy-free. While their new Dog’s Life Lounge Bed is made from furniture-grade ultra-soft velvet material to please any restless sleeper. Even better, PLAY dog beds are filled with eco-friendly PlanetFill™ manufactured from certified-safe recycled plastic bottles.
