Toys for Shelter Animals - Help us celebrate national pet day by creating dog and cat toys for animal shelters. Approximately 6.5 million animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Animal shelters across the country operate under extremely tight budgets. Most of the donations they receive go towards food and other essentials, not toys. By completing this Kynd Kit, you’re providing shelter animals with opportunities for fun that they might not otherwise receive. And who knows — the toys might just allow these animals to show off their fun sides to a future adopter.
