We have a pet cat. We like to call him Kitty. We adopted him from an animal shelter over 8 years ago. He and his siblings were find by the side of the road, with no cat parents in sight.
They were brought to the shelter and from there, on to a foster family who not only fed and cared for them, but nurtured them all into independent kittens that would know the love of the human touch and perhaps be adopted by a loving family one day. The foster family soon returned the kittens to the shelter to make ready for adoption.
This is our cat, Kitty. Some consider black cats scary, but in truth he is just a scardy-cat. Shy around people and the camera, he is poised, polite, sweet and loving. We credit his good manners and gentle nature the the animal shelter and the foster family. We’re thankful everyday that we have him.
Being part of the Hometalk Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals Blog Tour, our goal is to bring awareness to the various ways that people can give small donations to help animal shelters with the costs for keeping animals safe, fed and comfy until they are hopefully adopted.
If you like thrift store shopping, then one of the best ways to help out is by shopping at a thrift store that benefits an animal shelter.
I’m from the suburbs of Chicago and oddly enough, I could not find a thrift store that benefits sheltered animals near enough. Thus, I thought I would bring the thrift store to them by making up something crafty to donate to the shelter for resale.
Modeled after Martha Stewart’s Soda Bottle Piggy Bank.
I made a pack of plastic Soda Bottle Puggy Banks
that will be donated to the West Suburban Humane Society, where we adopted our kitty from.

The post includes FREE printable directions and puggy bank face template.
A very special thanks to Jeanette Chaney of Country Design Style who organized the entire event,
and to Hometalk for sponsoring the event!!!
If you are interested in giving to the cause for sheltered animals,
consider shopping at a shelter thrift store.
If you are feeling crafty consider making gift type crafts
that can be donated to the shelter to help raise funds for the animal’s care.
