WHILE he waits to be adopted, Theo the three-month-old cattle dog requires a warm and cosy space to rest.

Which is why Animal Welfare League Queensland in Ipswich is appealing to people to help keep the pets in their care comfortable.

The non-profit organisation is in need of an industrial sewing machine to make new covers for their dog beds.

AWLQ spokeswoman Brooke Whitney said the shelter's beds received a lot of wear and tear with dogs of all shapes and sizes using them.

"We use a number of raised stretcher beds and trampoline beds and some of the dogs like to play on and occasionally attack them" Ms Whitney said.

She said the non-profit organisation needed sewing machines that were durable enough to make mesh and trampoline fabric alterations.

"We also are in need of more towels, blankets and dog coats if anyone is able to spare them."

If you are able to donate, phone 5509 9030 for more details.
