Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Cage Comforters | February 21, 2008

After our recent blog post on Operation Happy Sock, Joanna at Vegans of Color left a comment telling us about Cage Comforters.  NYC’s Animal Care and Control (AC&C) accept these great items that can be made from a few simple materials.  All you need is a piece of 13″ X 18″ fabric and some batting as filler.  Then sew the ends together and you have a great gift for a shelter animal.  A complete set of instructions can be found here.   

According to AC&C’s website, “The comforters not only ease the stress of our homeless animals, they also help to ease the transition when the animals are adopted, because they take their comforters with them to their new homes.”  Sounds like a great idea to us!

 The next time you are feeling crafty, don’t bother making a sweater that only Bill Cosby would wear.  Make a cage comforter, and help a shelter animal sleep a little easier while they wait to be adopted by their new best friend.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
