23-year-old artist Amarildo Silva of Campina Grande, Brazil sees numerous abandoned dogs and cats wandering the streets, and decided to help these unloved little beings.

He began collecting discarded old tires and then making them into colorful, cute beds for animals desperately in need of those beds.

(Story continues from "Read More")

Amarildo picks up numerous tires from the streets and from landfills to use in his grand plan.

He scrubs and sanitizes them to make them clean and safe, and cuts them into comfortable beds.

Amarildo makes each bed beautiful, and colorful, complete with special designs and sometimes even adds the pet's name.

To make sure each pet is comfortable and cozy, he adds a soft cushion and a matching pillow.

Amarildo shows his special beds at community events and schools and online and people buy them.

Although most beds are for stray dogs and cats it has also turned into a self-sustaining business, C√£ominhas Pets.

Amarildo quit his job to be a full-time artist and tire bed maker and he now offers a colorful line of furniture as well

All of this is good for the environment, and good for the appearance of his community.

Amarildo told environmental blog Green Matters:

"Over the course of two years, I already removed 1,500 units of old tires from the environment making the [pet beds]. This certainly makes a very big positive impact on nature."
