Help the animals from the comfort of your home.

Collect items from our Wish List or complete a DIY project and help provide enrichment for the animals while in our care.

Here are few projects you can do at home. After you have completed a project, please contact our Volunteer Dept. at to schedule an appointment to have your documents signed.


Pet Bed

One bed earns credit for 5 hours of volunteer time.

You Need:

  • New or clean used bath towel (BATH TOWEL ONLY)
  • Batting from fabric shop the thicker the happier
  • Needle and Thread, sewing machine would be good
  • Odd yarn (leftover yarn)


Fold the towel in half width wise. Sew up the outside edges. Cut the batting to fit the inside of the towel and insert. Sew the opening closed. Now take pieces of yarn and stitch through the entire towel and batting and tie off. Place the yarn tie-downs evenly on the pet bed. This helps the batting not to shift and bunch when being washed. You have a great easy-clean-pet bed. The homeless cats and dogs do like these.

Cat Toys

10 toys earns credit for 5 hour of volunteer time.

You Need:

  • Baby Socks (BABY SOCKS ONLY)
  • Stuffing or fiberfill
  • Dry Catnip


Take a baby sock and fill from toe to heel with stuffing. Now add a pinch of dry catnip. Pinch the sock around the heel and ankle. Stretch the ankle and cuff and tie itself close to the heel. Done! An easy cat toy to make and cats love it.
