MEDFORD, Ore. — A local organization which aims to help homeless dogs and their owners got a big donation, thanks to a hotel’s re-model. The Comfort Inn in Medfrod donated bedding from 52 rooms to Tail Waggers Rescue. The donation is so large, the organization’s founder, who works out of her car, has only made a couple trips to hand out the blankets to those who need to stay warm.
Tail Waggers Rescue founder Maria Modica said she couldn’t believe it when she saw just how much was being donated.
“It was a hotel room full, floor to ceiling, wall to wall including the bathroom, the shower was filled with blankets and comforters,” said Maria Modica.
Tail Waggers Rescue helps homeless pets from Grants Pass to Ashland and assists in a variety of ways ranging from supplying dog food to cover vet expenses.
