Knitters from around the globe have stepped up to aid the animals who have been injured in Australia's wildfires. Animal Rescue Craft Guild, a group comprised of Australian crafters who create goods for animals in need year round, has been inundated with new volunteer knitters looking to do their part to help the wildlife affected by Australia’s wildfires.
According to the Animal Rescue Craft Guild’s Facebook page, the group, which is in constant contact with wildlife rescues to access their needs, is currently looking for joey pouches, animal beds, possum boxes and more to help aid animals injured in the wildfires. They have received enough koala mittens and bat wraps with pillows for now.
For those who would like to contribute, the Animal Rescue Craft Guild provides patterns and tips for the animal rescue crafts needed and also has a updated list of the crafts they need on their Facebook page.
Those who don’t know how to knit or sew can still help the group with a financial donation, which helps Animal Rescue Craft Guild cover supply and postage expenses.
