Let me first say I've been working at this no-kill pet shelter for 6.5yrs and love my job. None of the animals have "expiration dates" and they stay till they find homes. They take in any breed and any age(they currently have an 11 yr lab up for adoption). Every year they have a "Howliday" craft and bake sale around christmas and are accepting ANY type of craft donation...human or pet related. Items would need to be received by Dec 11th (the sale is Dec 12th but they need time to price and organize) and are located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. They can even mail you back a tax receipt for deductible donation. 100% of the proceeds benefit this local shelter. They are not associated with Humane society of the United states, they are independent. See their website link here for more info: http://www.sfhumanesociety.com/events.aspx?ViewEvent=18824
You can mail items directly to the shelter(3720 E Benson Road, Sioux Falls SD 57104). Any questions? I'm all ears. I've personally made magnets, fleece tie blankets, pet mats, braided fleece dog toys, almond bark dipped bones, catnip toys, baby headbands, dog bandanas, necklaces and kids bracelets as some ideas.
