The Snuggles Project provides information on making a comfort blanket or a Snuggle for animals at animal shelters. After being given a Snuggle, a frightened and/or difficult to handle animal is able become calm. This calming effect gives the animal and the caregiver time to learn how to handle the situation. They believe that this calming effect has saved the lives of many newly sheltered animals.
Snuggles make the shelters look and feel more homey. Animals are more at ease when visitors are more at ease. This makes for better matching and better adoption results. The website provides a link to shelters where your homemade Snuggle could be donated to countries like Australia, Jamaica, Spain, Japan, Romania, Germany and Thailand, as well as providing instructions for making it.
