About Animal Rescue Aid:

We’re honored to support the life saving efforts of 2,500+ Shelters and Groups on the front line of Animal Rescue each and every day! Through TheBlueBed Donation Program™, it’s our mission to make it possible for every rescued animal, in every shelter across the United States, to enjoy a comfortable pet bed.  Shelter enrichment (pet beds and toys) helps reduce the stress and anxiety often felt by shelter animals – so their true personalities can shine through to potential adopters – and that helps give them a better chance at being adopted!   That’s often the difference between life and death in a shelter, so a simple pet bed can truly save lives.

And please be sure to visit our Forgotten Shelters Program™ page and learn how we help small, rural shelters, without networks of support, received the items they desperately need to care for their rescues.

We couldn’t do what we do for the animals we serve without the caring and kindness of wonderful people just like you … We thank you in advance for your compassion for the animals who find themselves in shelters due to no fault of their own.  Please join us as we try to “Give them a hint of home ~ while they wait for theirs”™

What Our Participants are Saying:

It’s been nearly 2 months since I got an Animal Rescue Aid bed for my beautiful but energetic foster dog, Sparkle. She is happy and comfortable and there is not a single chew mark on the bed! UNBELIEVABLE!! Beds did not last long before with her! I was tired of cleaning up bed parts, but equally concerned that she might ingest fabric and get an obstruction…worry no more! Thank you ARA!
