Safe Beds For Pets

Pets can make us feel safe and grounded. In many cases they’re integral to our sense of home and people will go to great lengths to protect them – even, in some cases, at their own risk. But it doesn’t have to be that way, sometimes people and their pets just need a little help with their exit strategy.

In this story, Selena Shannon visits a special shelter at the RSPCA that provides a safe bed for pets, only not in the usual way.

Produced and narrated by Selena Shannon and originally broadcast on FBi Radio as part of All the Best episode #1604: Doggie. Opening narration from All the Best host Pip Rasmussen. 

Music: Showers by Podington Bear
