Naperville animal lovers are grabbing their crochet hooks and knitting needles to give a little comfort to our four legged friends.
Residents meet once a week at the 95th Street Library to make blankets for shelter animals.
The group is part of an organization called Comfort for Critters that supports local and national animal shelters.
Their goal is to make as many mats as possible to donate to the Naperville Area Humane Society.
The handmade blankets are given to shelter animals who get to take them to their new home when they get adopted.
“We’re doing something to give them a little bit of love and friendship,” said Judy Aulik, the Adults Services Librarian at 95th Street. “They do so much for people and we want to be able to do things in return for them.”
People with any skill level in knitting and crocheting are welcome to join.
The group meets each Tuesday from 3-5 at the 95th Street Library through July 24th.
