These are great -thans Cher. May I add, if you have an hour or two, and can't volunteer on a regular basis, come into a shelter and play with an animal for awhile. Brushing would be a tremendous help; the ultimate would be to clip a few claws!.

Noted. These animals need love and attention, so volunteering is wonderful. Bringing in toys, scratching posts, beds would be great too!

Thanks Cher. When I bought a new washer I gave my old one which still worked well to the local humane society. I make a round of the local thrift stores monthly and buy some used blankets and throws at low cost, bring them home to launder, then bag them and off they go to the shelter. Wool is not a good choice as it will not stand up to frequent washings. Big ones are good for dogs and little ones are good for cats. They especially like fuzzy ones. Quilts can be cut down to cage size and resewn around the edges. Nothing fancy, just sturdy enough to make sure the stuffing doesn't come out.
