If you are crafty and enjoy knitting, we have the perfect opportunity for you. Everything can be done at home when you have extra time. We are looking for someone who has good knitting skills to help create items for our gift shop.

We are currently looking for someone who would be able to knit hats, scarves, and other items for our gift shop. If there are other things you are able to make for us, let us know! We are open to any new ideas.

All the profits we make from the gift shop directly support our animals. Do something you enjoy while making a difference!
