October is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Month. Even if you cannot bring a new dog or cat into your home, there are lots of ways you can help shelter pets. Shelters are always in need of toys for their rescued animals. Especially, our beloved mischievous felines who’s curiosity drives them to bat, toss and poke.

These items can easily be collected:

  •         Carpet scraps/strips
  •         Paper towel or toilet paper tubes
  •         Ping pong balls
  •         Shower curtain rings
  •         Key rings / keychain rings
  •         Empty Tissue boxes (any size)
  •         Twine

 These crafts / DIY items can be easily made:
