Knitting for Shelter Pets in Lausanne?

Hello! I wanted to propose a project with a December deadline that would benefit shelter animals.

The St. Catherine shelter/refuge for animals (Lausanne) collects knitted rectangles measuring 10 inches by 16 inches and use these as liners to keep the adopted pets comfy in their new carriers when they get adopted and get home. I adopted a cat, Lili, from there myself, and she appreciated her little knitted blanket while she got adjusted to her new home and we found a bed that she liked. The rectangles can be any pattern, style, or thickness. The only requirement is the length and width.

I'd be happy to collect these and deliver them to the shelter in December.

Would any of you be interested in joining me? Let me know!

If you can't knit, you can always donate food or supplies that the animal shelter may need, volunteer to walk dogs at the shelter during the week (It's REALLY fun!!), or adopt a furry animal in need of a home yourself.

Thanks for reading! I hope you'll join me.
Feel free to PM me

Re: Knitting for Shelter Pets in Lausanne?


I think it's a great thing you are doing.
I'm not a knitter myself, but would be happy to help in some other way.

Do you know what's the best way to donate say food or supplies to Lausanne shelter? Is it a common practice to drop by with some gifts or do we need to call them before?

I'd like to join, but I am in Zurich. Is there anyone in Zurich to join me for such purpose? I can knit for galgos, they look hairless
