It all started with this viral video.
The Knox County Humane Society in Galesburg posted a plea on social media asking their followers to donate any old armchairs so that the dog and cat residents could have a comfy place to sleep while waiting to be placed in their forever homes.
The idea came after a few of the shelter workers gave a pup named Buster Brown the job of guarding the front desk. While he was posted in the lobby, Buster refused to leave his spot on a chair.
“The shelter pets absolutely love their chairs! If anyone has any older chairs they no longer want, please think of the shelter pets!” reads the caption for the video.
We love this idea and are never surprised by the power of social media paired with caring hearts.
