Kiki -- Our "frugal" cat
The Green note at Prairie suggested donating old rugs to your local animal shelter, where they would receive a second life. Great idea, and one I can expand on.
First, do not limit yourself to a local animal shelter. My guess is the shelter may have limited storage space, and if another kind person had just made a donation, have a plan b. What other animal focused centers might you call:
- humane society
- rescue organizations specific to a breed (i.e. pug rescue)
- a zoo
- an emergency veterinary office
Second, they can probably benefit from more than just old rugs. Here are a few that come to my mind:
- tennis or other sporting balls
Post a comment if you have another idea that might inspire others to make the most of our resources, which is good for the earth, wallets, and our overall health.
