The idea of a newborn puppy in your arms is irresistible. A pile of cuteness, with two ears and tail…
That's how many FREE handmade blankets we have given to animal shelter pets, as of February 13th 2016!
(Over 8,000 were shipped in 2015 alone!)
4 Ways You Can Help Today...
Here's what you can do today to help animal shelter pets...
#1 Sponsor a blanket shipment
We provide 600-800 blankets per month to animal shelters across the US. As we work with shelters farther away, it becomes more expensive to get the blankets to them. Sponsoring a blanket shipment is an easy way to help!
Any amount helps ... so please consider making a donation, with 100% going exclusively to ship blankets! Thank you!
#2 Buy a blanket - Ship a box!
This is a brand new way for non-crafters to help! Linda, CFC's founder, has been busy this fall creating limited-edition blankets which will be sold on Etsy, soley to raise shipping funds.
Each blanket will include this card, indicating that 25 blankets will be shipped to a shelter in need.
A beautiful blanket PLUS sponsoring a shipment, equals a meaningful gift for any pet lover!
#3 Make a blanket
If you know how to knit, crochet, sew, or just use scissors - why not start on a critter blanket today?
#4 Donate yarn or fleece
If you don't have the time or expertise, but do have some extra yarn (leftover from a project) or a full skein you've never gotten around to using, we can put it to good use! Any amount, any color 4-ply yarn will be gratefully accepted.
We also gladly accept any leftover fleece material. We use larger pieces of fleece to make blankets, and smaller strips to make pull-toys for shelter dogs. We have a 24/7 drop-off bin in Glen Ellyn, IL to receive donations. Please see our volunteer resources page for more details.
