We're Here to Help You!

So many crafters are passionate animal lovers and advocates, donating and volunteering to their favorite rescues and shelters but are left asking if they could do more.  Crafters & Artisans for Rescued Animals was born out of that desire.  By using our skills we can come together as a community of crafters and help provide important items to you, our rescues. 


We ask that each rescue interested in donations from CARA fill out our Rescue Wish List advising us of your specific needs down to sizes, quantity and material selection.  We've compiled a list of patterns consisting of crocheted birds nests, dog & cat supplies, small pet products and even items for you to use for fundraising.  We are continuously updating our donation offering list based on the suggestions and needs of our rescue partners.


Our crafters check our lists of needs and ship the items directly to you.  Our goal is always to help not hinder, so your request list can change as often as you like by just contacting us.  Our lists stay within our group to avoid the risk of a rescue being inundated with donations.

A Truly Collective Group

Our Facebook group consists of both crafters and rescues.  This allows for valuable discussion amongst our members.  Crafters are not only learning about rescues from all over the US and Canada, but how they can improve their skills to better serve the animals.  While we do require a rescue or rescue representative to join our FB group to receive donations we truly wish you will consider joining us.

We hope you'll join us

We hope our movement can help you and the animals you serve.  If you would like to be added to our list of rescues please fill out our Rescue Contact Form by clicking the button to the right.  We look forward to helping you and the animals.  Feel free to contact us anytime to change and update your wish list, we are constantly updating our products to better suit the needs of our rescues.
