The Scituate Animal Shelter is reaching out and asking the public for help making snuffle mats.

Executive Director of the Scituate Animal Shelter, Maryann Regan says snuffle mats are made out of a rubber sink mat with holes and fabric strips tied through them that create a big kind of fluffy half ball.

 

Regan says it’s important to offer these types of enrichment to prevent animals from getting bored in the shelter.

 

A fun craft for all ages- all you need is a rubber sink mat with holes and about 200 7-inch fleece strips and start tying them through the holes.

Pictures and directions can be found here.

Snuffle mats or the materials to make them can either be mailed or dropped off at the Scituate Animal Shelter located at 780 Chief Justice Cushing Highway.
