The Knox County Humane Society in Galesburg, Illinois, is a "no kill" facility, so some of the animals remain there for a long time before adoption. Usually dogs just lay on a blanket on the floor of their cage, but they really prefer easy chairs.


When the staff realized this, they posted a video of a few dogs lounging in easy chairs, and asked the public to donate more old chairs. Since posting the video, the shelter has received dozens of chairs to help house their animal residents. Now other shelters around the country are asking for similar donations.
