Sadly black cats have the most difficult time being adopted (followed by black dogs). One reason: they're more difficult to see in the shadow of their crate. A brightly-colored cat bed or crate mat (starting at just $4.99 at #TuesdayMorning, compare at $19.99) can help a black cat be far more visible!
Young pet lovers will enjoy making collar pompoms for adoptable dogs; I used discounted yarn from my local #TuesdayMorning store, just $2.99 (compare at $6.49). See the Tuesday Morning blog for instructions on how to make this quick and easy craft!
Visit a local pet adoption event and you'll come up with all kinds of ideas for craft projects you can make -- including "adopt me" bandannas! Check the #TuesdayMorning blog for all kinds of craft projects to help adoptable pets.
A bright orange vest, t-shirt or bandanna can help make black dogs more visible in the shadow of their kennels so that they're not overlooked. Visit your local #TuesdayMorning store to find deeply discounted products for crafting your own "adopt me" items to donate to your local shelter!
Your gifts of kindness to your local shelter can take the form of adoption, sharing adoptables on social media, fostering, volunteering, or donating. Craft "adopt me" vests to help adoptables find a forever home; you'll find deeply discounted materials at your local #TuesdayMorning store!
Did you know that there's a National Craft for Your Local Shelters Day that encourages everyone to make products for their local pet shelter? Held July 21, the day draws attention to the many toys and crafts you can make (although, if you have missed it, the good news is that shelters need your items EVERY day!) Visit your local #TuesdayMorning store for discounted craft items to start creating goodies for your local shelter!
Does it cost more to adopt a small dog or a large dog? While the adoption fees might be the same, you'll find some variation in costs when it comes to things you'll need to get your adoptable dog off on the right paw. Find deeply discounted pet products -- from crates to leashes to USA-made dog treats -- at your local #TuesdayMorning store!
Shelter dogs can get anxious. A treat ball can help the dog focus on the treats, moving the ball so each treat (or piece of kibble) falls out one by one. Interactive toys like this treat ball are available at deeply discounted prices at #TuesdayMorning; priced at just $5.99 (compare at $15.99), this makes a great shelter donation!
With numerous animals in a small space, shelters spend a lot of time cleaning to keep everyone -- both two- and four-legged -- healthy. Cleaning products make great donations; package brooms, scrubs, hand soaps and more in a cute #TuesdayMorning container to make a donation extra special!
Did you know that black dogs are often the last adopted as shelters? They more difficult to see in the shadows of the kennels -- but you can help increase their chances of adoption by crafting "adopt me" collars and bandannas -- or colorful collar flowers and pompoms! Visit your local #TuesdayMorning for discounted craft goods (and see the Tuesday Morning blog for crafting ideas!)
Many shelter dogs don't have collars so they make a great donation gift for use at adoption events. Visit your local #TuesdayMorning for collars as low as $4.99 (compare at $14.99). Collars can also be great craft projects for young dog lovers; fabric paint can be used to decorate even the plainest collar to make it -- and the adoptable dog -- extra eye-catching!
Children enjoy making colorful "Adopt Me" bandannas for dogs to wear at adoption events. Using fabric paint (available for deeply discounted prices at #TuesdayMorning), young pet lovers can use those artistic talents and learn the importance of helping homeless pets with a fun craft project!
