If you have a question about anything you wonder if we can turn it into $$$ to help the animals in rescues, please just ask! 
What we do is collect from people, or restaurants [empties] cash in to buy food, help with vetting costs for Vanier Street Cats and Adopt Me Cat Rescue. I upcycle old quilts, blankets, towels, etc into pet beds/pads, fashion toys out of microfleece fabric for tugg toys, make cat toys, rice blankets [warm up like a bean bag] for smaller pets to lay on for warmth. In turn I also make up “pet packages” for SafePet Ottawa – they foster pets for people fleeing domestic abuse – and shelters do not take pets – the pet packages are made for dogs and cats – and contain when possible: a washable bed I have made, two bowls, collar and leash, stuffy toy to love, ball for dog, cat nip toy for cat, wet and dry food, cat litter and sometimes an animal carrier. This becomes the pet’s own stuff – so when they can go back to their family – and nothing looks or smells the same – they have THEIR stuff for comfort!
We also work closely with Pet Resource Bank – the 4 groups of us – PRB, Empties, Vanier and Adopt Me all support each other and work together!
