Happy 3 week birthday to us!🎉

We are excited to announce we’re partnering up with Pets In Need, a Bay Area Peninsula based shelter, “The mission of Pets In Need is to advance the no-kill movement, reduce pet homelessness, and find every dog and cat a loving home.”

This is a small project; 36 blankets to start, but this is also an ongoing partnership that will come up again as new needs arise.

Please use the Pledge Form (https://forms.gle/sWQaqUwPTdaXEMm1A) to pledge how many blankets you will make. Once your blankets are done, please go back and update the form saying your items are complete. Once completed items are ready, you will receive an email with instructions on where to send your items.

For those of you in San Francisco or South San Francisco, you can make arrangements to drop blankets off to Raquel directly.

Immediate Needs for our new partners:

16 Cat Condo Blankets - 27” x 24.5”

20 Dog Condo Blankets - 35”x 23.5”

Due Date: April 1st

Material:

  • 2 layers of Fleece or multiple layers of thinner material to provide some cushion/padding

Patterns:

  • No restrictions - Sew, knit or crochet. If you have a dog or cat then think of what they would like. You can also use any of the patterns here.

If you knit or crochet, go to Ravelry and type “pet blanket” into the search and any of the free patterns will be fine as long as they meet the dimensions above.
