Chair company donates pet beds to shelter after hearts captured by ‘La-Z-Boy’

Furniture manufacturer La-Z-Boy announced it plans to donate pet beds to the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League in honor of the organization’s most recent celebrity – La-Z-Boy Gatson.

The rescued puppy got the name after he was found abandoned along a road in Lincoln County. He was sitting in a discarded reclining chair, thus his new name.

“He’s been in the news recently and has completely made his way into our hearts,” the La-Z-Boy company wrote in a social media post. “We have been so moved by the work of Brookhaven Animal Rescue League who rescued La-Z-Boy Gatson, that we decided to make a donation to the rescue and send some of our La-Z-Boy pet beds so other pets at the shelter can live in comfort until they find their furever homes.”
