How to Offer Knitted Love to Orphaned Baby Animals Worldwide

Wildlife Rescue Nests

If I know anything about charity knitters, it’s that we can’t resist knitting for animals!

Without fail, anytime an appeal goes out to knit or crochet anything for animals, yarncrafters turn out in droves. And before long, the organization in question will drown in knitted and crocheted animal assistance!

So I want to introduce all of you to Wildlife Rescue Nests, a charity that offers knitted and crocheted nests to wildlife rescue organizations for birds and small mammals.

Wildlife Rescue Nests started life as a Canadian organization. A woman named Katie started it in 2013, hoping to supply nests for wildlife rescue centers in Ontario. Little might she have imagined how it would take off!

Today, Wildlife Rescue Nests supplies nests not just in Ontario but all over Canada, and not just Canada but all over the world!

They now send nests all over the United States as well as to Ireland, United Kingdom, Norway, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, India, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Costa Rica. It has become a truly international organization.
