Piece for Shelter Pets


With permission, I am partially quoting from Nan Baker‘s Purrfect Spots Blog:

“October is national Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month and some quilt industry professionals are partnering with the Petfinder Foundation to create awareness of Shelter Dogs (and Cats) that need “ furrever” homes. It is an unusual combination but one that is working beautifully to help our furry friends. These quilters are animal lovers and are helping shelter animals in ways that are new and unique.  So join us in the October Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Monthand see how we are helping and how you can help. We invite you to Piece for Shelter Pets”.”

Of course, there is much more information to read about along with darling photos of pets.

    So happy to see this is happening for animal shelters. I once had a kids sewing club to make quilts for our local animal shelter. We had so much fun picking colors and sewing.
    When the pets were adopted, the quilt went home with them.

    • Donna,

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment – and kudos to your for your work with the sewing club!
      Kennel quilts go home with adopted pets, too. The pets become quite attached to them and our volunteers enjoy sewing more.
      They are great scrap quilt projects!

    Thanks for the care you give.

    • It’s a team effort, Alesha. Our TQPM Kennel Quilt Program has over 900 members now, all contributing before, during, and after disasters.
      Your thanks are appreciated by all the Team! We thank you and appreciate your leaving a comment.
