Dog Toys and Blankets: Make From Home

At Pebble Tossers, October is all about the animals and we are helping our animal friends at LifeLine Animal Project. LifeLine Animal Project cares for over 40,000 animals each year. Over 14,000 animals were adopted, rescued, or returned to their owners from the Fulton and Dekalb shelters in 2019.

What Volunteers Will Do: Making toys and blankets for shelter dogs is a fun way to get your children excited about serving. LifeLine Animal Project currently has a need for both items. This is a serve-form-home project and is perfect for all ages. Click here for instructions on How-To-Make No-Sew Dog Toys or No-Sew Blankets. Pebble Tossers volunteers can register to make either toys or blankets by clicking here.

Registration: We have multiple dates on the calendar to allow you to record volunteer hours however, you can make and deliver the toys or blankets on a day that is convenient for you. Once you have registered you will receive an email with further information on how to deliver your items.

Sew Masks

This is an Open Project for September in honor of the Elderly.

In an effort to add extra protection for the medical community and others, a call to action has been sent out to communities worldwide to make masks. There are many templates and opportunities to make masks for yourself, your family, those with a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 and the medical community. This project can be done at any time in addition to the dates on our calendar.

Patterns for sewing masks can be found all over the internet. Below are a few suggestions:
