    Default Xmas Gifts for the Doggies *and Cats* Without Homes.help!!

    hey guys

    I have been racking my brains all night and it hit me, why not ask the people who deal with the rescues...

    I help out at my daughters school every few months and come with a new and (hopefully) exciting thing for them all to do. As Xmas is approaching they are doing a lot for the less fortunate, (starts with a food drive, and goes on from there) and I thought how can I incorporate an acitivty for them to do whilst keeping with the theme...

    Which lead me to the idea of making something for the 'pound' pups we have in the area... (and kitty cats!!).. But im a bit unsure what would be needed..

    At first I thought some yummy doggy treats for them to eat? But would these be accepted by places like vets, rspca, safe etc??

    I'd like to be able to give these on behalf of her class and get a bit of a thank you back so they can see that their efforts are appreciated.. they are only 5 and 6 so it needs to be pretty simple...


    Any other ideas would be appreciated!

    Our RSPCA is always after dog and cat toys for the young ones to relieve boredom, help with teething, and for play. Little children can relate to toys, so that may be an avenue to pursue. It toys are too expensive for some of the parents, a simple tin of food would be just as welcome!

    I thought of that! but i was hoping to make something with them rather then buying something

    The school is very big on giving and helping etc, and this year the P n F board has already asked for a lot of donations etc... So i dont know if they'd allow me to do it

    Well, a good idea for cats and kittens is pom poms. Very easy for young kids to make using leftover wool of any kind. Not sure about what to make for dogs....hmmmm, will think about it. It's a great idea, Jodz!

    That's a really good idea!

    I can't think of anything to make off the top of my head, but I will be back when I actually think of something! lol

    Our rescue shelters put out a request for things like margarine containers and cream containers and stuff that could hold a doggy iceblock. You could phone and ask if they want these, and then your kids could save them or collect them from the neighbours.

    Any kind of stuffed pillow is good as far as Frosty is concerned. I got a few from hard rubbish and put them through the wash, and now they are being thoroughly shredded. And I'm keeping the stuffing to stuff again... So that would be easy for kiddies to do I think. Then again, I'm still crap with needle and thread.

    Frosty is also fond of cardboard toilet rolls. You could use wool or string to join a few of those together and it would amuse cat or dog.
