Crafting for Wildlife
Support wildlife with your crafting skills
Are you a crafty person?
Can you knit, crochet or sew?
Wildlife Rescue League needs you!
WRL rehabilitators, partner veterinarians and volunteer transporters use many kinds of knitted and sewn items to keep wild life warm and cozy.
Knitted and crocheted nests
If you have an item you would like to make and donate, we can have a rehabilitator try it out and see how it works! Your donations of these items helps tremendously in the efforts to save wildlife.
