Cage Comforters

The MADACC Cage Comforter Program enlists volunteer sewers to make small comforters and toys for the kittens, cats and small dogs in our care. Our animals love their comforters! The comforters not only ease the stress of our homeless animals, they also help to ease the transition when the animals are transferred, because they take their comforters with them to our animal placement partner organizations.

Because of the number of animals we care for each year, a great many comforters are needed. We are looking for volunteer sewers as well as donations of material, batting and thread. You can also make a monetary donation earmarked specifically for this project.

If you can help by sewing, donating or offering suggestions to make this program a success, please contact Kathy Shillinglaw at 414-649-8640.

Cage Comforters Specifications and Instructions:

Comforters can be made from any type of material except looped fabric like chenille or terry cloth that might get snagged in the animal’s nails. They should be a finished size of:
