The Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault program provides an emergency shelter for women and their children escaping abusive situations. Their facility has 32 beds and is the only nationally accredited shelter of its kind in Alaska. They also allow pets, so we would like to send cozies in addition to the slippers and washcloths.

PET COZIES ***Pet blankets may be knitted, crocheted, or sewn, but must be washable! Knitted or crocheted blankets should be a tight weave and fairly thick (use several strands together or a single strand of #5 or #6 bulky yarn.) Suitable fabrics are denim, flannel, heavy cotton with batting in between layers and stitched from corner to corner so the batting doesn’t bunch up when washed.***
