Meet Ryan S., this inspiring young man contacted Chance Shelter to see if he could help advocate for pets and give to the cause. I explained that although we are foster-based, someday we will have a shelter. He wanted to create a project that would have longevity and be a part of the shelter. He shared his idea of the dog beds and we told him those would be perfect because we can still utilize them now at the foster homes when needed. When Ryan presented the beds to us we were heart-warmed to say the least.
We all seem to always here about the bad things some of our youth are doing in our world today. Ryan is a prime example that there are still a lot of our youth out there that care about our pets, their community and their future. We are so proud of where he is going and what he plans to accomplish in his future.
Ryan, we thank you for your hard work and innovative idea for these dog beds (30 total). Below, please see Ryan’s bio;
My name is Ryan S., I am an eight-teen year old senior in high school., and I have been a scout since the age of seven. Currently I am a candidate for the rank of Eagle which is the highest honor of scout scouting with the BSA can earn. To do so one must earn twenty-one merit badges, thirteen of which are required merit badges. Then you must complete a service project you organize and fundraise yourself; my project was to make thirty dog beds made out of artificial grass and PVC for Chance Shelter. I am extremely grateful to the wonderful folk at Chance for the opportunity they provided me by agreeing to be the beneficiary for my project and for the volunteers who came to lend a hand with making the dog beds.
