I'm so glad you're doing this. Our daughter has a charity for rescue animals. I make all sorts of things for the animals and also to sell as fundraisers. If you'd like to compare notes, send me a PM.
We just took in yet another black cat for our sanctuary location. He showed his appreciation by jumping up to the 4th shelf of the bookcase, where I was drying some catnip for the mice I make and . . . <sigh>
