Snuggles Project-Blanket for Animal Shelters

Animals need blankets too. I've had dogs and or cats for 30 years, that would be since I was 7 years old. I'm the kind of person who can't watch the ASPCA commercials or injured animal commercials.

It makes me sad to think of dogs and cats that live on cement floors in cages. They want to be as comfortable as people do.

I have 4 more ready to go. It's a great way to use scraps. I made blankets made of Granny Squares using a ton of mine. Not all shelters have cats so if I make some for cats I look at the individual shelters to see if they have some.

There are so many shelters that participate. You can search by country>state>area code. Look, for the snuggles icon which looks like a cat. Links are below. If you don't have time to search for a shelter you can send it to the headquarters.

Rough Guideline for Sizes:
14” x 14” for cats and small animals
24” x 24” for cats and small to medium dogs
36” x 36” for medium to large dogs

I hope you have a chance to make one.
