No Sew Blankets

No sew blankets are easy to make and they keep our dogs and cats comfy and warm during their stay with us. You can make small ones for the cats and bigger ones for the dogs.

Instructions available here, or watch a how-to video for more details. We welcome your creativity.

Rope Toys

Dog rope toys are great for heavy chewers and for the dogs to play with while they wait to be adopted. You can make them out of any old materials, but fleece is especially sturdy. Instructions available here.

(SSL hours equivalent: 10 toys = 1 hour)

Catnip Sock Toys

Catnip sock toys enrich the lives of the cats at our adoption centers. These are made by taking a sock, stuffing it with catnip, and tying a knot in the ankle. That's it! The result is a durable, huggable toy our cats can lick, kick, and enjoy for countless hours. Instructions available here.

Host a Donation Drive

Are you able to host a donation drive for our animals? We are always in need of toys, treats, leashes, harnesses, and Kongs, among many other items. The items we need most can be found on our in-kind donation page and on our Amazon wishlist. You can also get creative! One group did a Kong drive for us and delivered them to the shelter already stuffed and frozen. The dogs were delighted by their frozen treat.
