Every day, Joan Potters spends hours carefully sewing high-quality dog beds from fabric scraps left over from the Greater San Antonio Quilting Guild.
"I just am happy to do it for them and to know that some dog is going to be comfortable," Potters told KSAT. "It makes me feel so good to know that they're not going to be laying on cement or a hard floor or in the winter."
Potters cuts up rags for days and uses them to stuff the beds. Volunteers from local churches occasionally help her with the sewing and deliveries.
Potters makes around 30 to 40 dog beds every month.
"I get tired, but I'll just keep doing it until I can't do it anymore," Potters said.
"You know their bones ache, too. You know they have feelings. They can't talk to us in our language, but look at their eyes and the expression on their face. They all have expressions and I just love them," she said.
