CARA Disaster Assistance Team

The Disaster Assistance Team is an optional path for our members who wish to create specific items and ship them directly to the same place each time.  

The goal of the Disaster Assistance Team is to create a stockpile of items ready to ship when our rescues experience an unexpected urgent need, or natural disaster.  Reminiscent of the Australian Crafting movement, these items will be distributed when they are needed most, to areas experiencing hardships such as the California Wildfires, Hurricanes, Tropical Storms and more. 

Items we will be collecting for this project are:

  • Pouches of all sizes

  • Stay Open and Flat Snuggle Sacks

  • Wraps: Flat & Pillow of both sizes

  • Nests of all sizes

  • Fleece Beds/Mats of all sizes

  • Rescue Savers

  • Snuggle Blankets

  • Flat Hammocks

  • Warmable Packs w/Covers

Patterns can be found on our website. While we ask that you use our patterns for safety purposes,  if you have items left over from Australia crafting, the Australian patterns are approved as well as they meet our safety standards. 

If you would like to be a part of the discussion and stay up to date on progress of the team you can join the discussion group HERE

Packages can be shipped to the address below.  We ask that you fill out the itemized shipping log so we can sort items appropriately.
