Here are few projects you can do at home.
One bed earns credit for 2 hours of volunteer time.
• New or clean used bath towel (BATH TOWEL ONLY)
• Batting from fabric shop the thicker the happier
• Needle and Thread, sewing machine would be good
• Odd yarn
Fold the towel in half width wise. Sew up the outside edges. Cut the batting to fit the inside of the towel and insert. Sew the opening closed. Now take pieces of yarn and stitch through the entire towel and batting and tie off. Place the yarn tie-downs evenly on the pet bed. This helps the batting not to shift and bunch when being washed. You have a great easy-clean-pet bed. The homeless cats and dogs do like these.
10 toys earns credit for 1 hour of volunteer time.
• Baby Socks (BABY SOCKS ONLY)
• Stuffing or fiberfill
• Dry Catnip
Take a baby sock and fill from toe to heel with stuffing. Now add a pinch of dry catnip. Pinch the sock around the heel and ankle. Stretch the ankle and cuff and tie itself close to the heel. Done! An easy cat toy to make and cats love it.

• Clean old margarine container
• Potting soil
