Chance has been involved with his town’s Eagle Scout program in Utah since 2015.

So when it was time to organize a project he voiced the need for one that helps animals.

He told Fox13 News that as a kid he would watch those ads asking people to adopt an unwanted animal from a shelter and would always wish he could help them all.

“What if I want to do that on a bigger scale and help the animals that can’t get adopted,” he said.

Chance knew from his animal shelter research that some rescue centers don’t have enough money to provide each animal with a bed so came up with an ingenious way to help — on a large scale.

Chance discovered a way of making comfortable dog beds using PVC pipes and material. Using his Eagle Scout skills he managed to raise $3,500 — enough money to make 150 dog beds.

The hardworking animal lover put in more than 100 hours worth of work with help from his fellow Eagle Scouts to create the much-needed comfort for shelter animals.
