Children can be some of the biggest animal lovers out there, and we’re excited that your child wants to learn more about how they can help take care of homeless cats in their community!

What’s cuter than watching a cat play? Why, watching a cat play with a toy you made with your own two hands! We’re also always seeking those with basic sewing skills to help us make enrichment supplies like trap covers and cage curtailments.

Behavior and Enrichment Crafts

What you’ll do: craft homemade cat toys, trap covers, or other enrichment supplements.
Time commitment: 30 minutes to a few hours.
