In-office project to benefit PetsEmpower.
ABOUT OUR BENEFICIARY
PetsEmpower is a nonprofit foundation and umbrella organization giving courageous domestic violence survivors a positive alternative preserving pet relationships at risk, through no fault of owners. They work to increase capacity across the United States for short-term pet fostering allowing domestic violence survivors to enter shelters, access services and reunite with their pets.
Volunteers will create dog toys out of fleece to benefit local shelter animals and provide them with toys to encourage energetic play.
- Knowledge of braiding and/or knotting
- Cut three strips of fleece using your scissors. Tie the strips of fleece together at one end, leaving about 4 inches of tassel at the very top. Separate each strip to prepare for braiding. (Helpful Hint: if using six strips, create three sections of two strips.)
- Braid the fleece strips together tightly until you have about 8 inches remaining.
- Tie a knot at the end of the braid and trim the remaining end to create a 4-inch tassel.
