Westerville North’s Jacob Washburn, Troop 64 build dog bed kits

Westerville North High School student Jacob Washburn's Eagle Scout project involved building dog beds.  Washburn and Boy Scout Troop 64, chartered by the Spring Road Church of Christ, worked Feb. 26 to provide 50 Kuranda bed kits for dogs that are being fostered through the Speak for the Unspoken pet rescue.

Dogs that are being fostered through Speak for the Unspoken can rest more comfortably now, thanks to Westerville’s Boy Scout Troop 64.

As part of his Eagle Scout project, Jacob Washburn, with help from Troop 64, chartered by the Spring Road Church of Christ, worked to provide 50 Kuranda bed kits for dogs that are being fostered by the nonprofit pet rescue.

“I love dogs,” said Washburn, a Westerville North High School junior. “I chose this benefactor because they’re connected with my mother’s work. They needed dog beds, so the dogs don’t have to sleep on the ground. Kuranda beds lift dogs off the ground.”

Andrea Porzellansparger, executive director of Speak for the Unspoken, said the original idea was to build beds from scratch.
