Are you a crafty person? Can you knit, crochet or sew? Wildlife Rescue League needs you!
The rehabilitators, partner veterinarians and transporters that volunteer with WRL use knitted and crocheted nests for keeping animals warm so they can be safely transported and cared for until they are ready to go back to the wild! Your donations of these nests helps tremendously in the efforts to save wildlife.
Our rehabilitators also use all kinds of sewn items – hammocks (regular and honeycomb), pouches/snuggle sacks (hanging and non-hanging), bat wraps (can be used for other wildlife too) and more (click on the Hammocks button below for the Tutorial for Common Rat Hammocks and Accessories). 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!
We have compiled a list of tutorials and knitting / sewing patterns. There you will also find instructions on how to send in your items.
