AWLQ’s animal welfare work is almost solely funded by the community through donations. With one single cat or dog costing an average of $500 to put through the rehoming process, and approximately 300 dogs and cats being rehomed each month, AWLQ could simply not do this work without the generosity and support of the public.
Craft 4 Cats is an exciting community project that will raise money specifically for their cat and kitten rehoming program and allow all cat-lovers and animal-welfare advocates to get involved and help spread the word about shelter cats in need.
There are two ways to get involved in the project;
1) Make a Cat Softie
2) ‘Adopt’ a Cat Softie
If you choose to make a Softie, you can download a pattern by visiting the AWL website HERE or you can make one free hand.
Whichever way you choose, make sure you check out the examples on the AWL website as they have provided a ‘ tips’ section. This is to ensure that all the softies made are of consistent size, style and quality.
Remember – you don’t need to be a professional sewer or crafter to make a Cat Softie! You can be a total amateur and still create something lovely to contribute to the project! What’s important is that you put your love into it
If you choose not to make a Softie, then you can still get involved in Craft 4 Cats! All you need to do is ‘adopt’ of their handmade Softies for a small donation. All Softies will be available to adopt for a donation of either $10 or $20 (depending on the size and the detail of the creation). AWL will be posting photos of the Softies up on their website , so there will be plenty of opportunity to ‘adopt’ a Cat Softie that’s just right for you!
