Decorate Canvas Tote

Decorate the canvas tote to make it fun and colorful! Tip: place a piece of paper in the tote before decorating. This will prevent the marker from bleeding through the tote.

DIY Dog Bowl

*We are currently transitioning out of this step, if you do not have a ceramic bowl, please skip this step.

1. Find the following items:

  • Ceramic Bowl
  • Paint pens
2. Decorate the bowl
  • Using paint pens, decorate the bowl. Write a message or draw something. Get creative!
  • After you’re done decorating, place the bowl in the oven before preheating. Then, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once preheated, set timer for 30 min. Once the time is over, turn off your oven and let the bowl cool off inside for an additional 30 min before taking it out.
WARNING: Bowl may be hot. Use caution when removing!

Decorate the Doggy Bag Dispenser

Using the paint pen, decorate the doggy bag dispenser to make it fun and colorful!

DIY Dog Tug Toy

1. Find the following items:
  • Fleece Fabric Strips (2 bundles of 4 strips)

**These strips are packed in stacks of four and held together with a rubber band. There are two bundles of fleece included. Find both bundles and remove the rubber bands.

*Keep the stacks of four separate. Each stack of four makes one complete toy.

  • Helpful Tips:
    • The tighter you pull your braid and knots, the longer the toy will last!
    • Don’t forget, you have enough material to make TWO toys.

DIY Bandana

1. Find the following items:
  • White Canvas Bandana 
  • Permanent Markers 
2. Decorate the Bandana
  • Use the provided permanent markers or other writing tools to decorate a bandana for the shelter animal to wear when they are adopted.
  • Helpful Tips:
    • Fold the bandana in half, corner to corner, to get an idea of what it will look like when it is worn by the shelter animal. 
    • Place a piece of paper or cardboard under the canvas to avoid the markers bleeding through.
