I am passionate about animal rescues and it is one of the main reasons I named my blog Rescued Paw Designs. I realized very early in my business that I can help others by teaching them to crochet all the while they help me to save animals. Helping Animals is my passion, my main purpose and goal in life.
About My Pups
When I first started RPD in 2014 I was lucky enough to be the dog mom to rescue pups Oscar and Gus. They both passed away recently and left a deep hole in my heart. I am sad but at the same time happy that I was able to spend 14 years with them and give them a life they deserved. They were/ are true rescue success stories! Since then I have adopted two more pups Penn and Clyde. You will probably see them from time to time pop up in some of my posts here and on Instagram since they tend to follow me everywhere. I hope you like furry cuteness!
Animal Charities I Support
Butler County Humane Society – Butler County Humane Society is a no kill shelter that serves my little hometown and surrounding areas. They do wonderful public outreach, education and are all around a great addition my town. Donate to them today and help save a life!
Ovada – Ovado is a small group of women who saw a need for someone to advocate for the abused and neglected animals of their town. They rely fully on donations to pay vet bills, answer calls and truly truly need the communities support. Donate to Ovada today!
Crochet Charity Patterns
Here is my list of easy-to-make crochet projects that are great to make for donations to animal shelters.
Chunky Crochet Blanket – This simple chunky blanket would be great to use for dogs at shelters! Work one up today, donate and help a pup out. They would sure appreciate it! 🙂
Crochet Baby Blanket – Even though this is a baby blanket it is the perfect size for a dog! The chunky soft yarn it uses is also great because it can be washed again and again for constant use! Check this charity crochet blanket to get started.
How You Can Help
By donating, fostering, adopting, and even spreading the word (yes even hitting the share button on Facebook) about homeless animals helps! Each month I donate a portion of my total blog profits to animal charities, rescue groups and more. I am fortune to be able to do what I love while at the same time helping those animals that are in desperate need. By reading my blog, making my patterns, purchasing my patterns and just being here you are helping!
