New York City’s municipal shelters are bleak. Homeless dogs, cats and other animals are kept in small cages where their bedding consists of lousy towels placed on cold hard floors.
Through the Mother’s Comfort Project, the nonprofit Rational Animal provides comfy homemade beds for shelter residents to curl up in and muffle the noise of their lonely environment. The group also makes catnip toys adorned with orange animal guardian ribbons. The beds and toys are sewn by Rational Animal volunteers and school clubs at sewing studios in Brooklyn.
These lovingly-made goodies are then delivered to Animal Care and Control Centers and placed inside the kennels of the weary souls seeking human companions and forever homes.
Please join Rational Animal for a wonderful important event to help bring warmth and love to animals in city shelters this holiday season. No sewing experience is needed!

Over 3,500 beds and 2,000 toys have been made through the Mother’s Comfort Project and brought to Animal Care and Control, providing a comfortable place for homeless animals to sleep. The organization aims to make this year a little warmer for many of the thousands of animals housed in NYC shelters.
