We are asking you to donate a little of your time and your leftover scraps of yarn or fabric to make snuggles for your local humane societies and animal shelters. Crochet, knit, quilt or sew cloth blankets in the following guideline 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
These sizes are just guidelines. The actual Snuggles don't have to be exact. They could be made out of acrylic yarn or cotton in any pattern or color that you choose. The ends should be double-knotted and fastened off long and woven through the work to prevent unraveling from washing and wear. They are best when they are made thick for comfort and warmth.
Many of our participating animal shelters and humane societies also accept donations of blankets and towels in the name of the Snuggles Project. All blankets and towels should be cleaned before sending. Please do not send yarn to local shelters unless they have specifically requested it. Very few have the volunteers or the resources to convert it to Snuggles.
