Volunteer to Make Snuffle Mats for Dogs

November 23 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Help make snuffle mats for dogs in need … and cards for those who care for them!

At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, we will:

  • Make snuffle mats for Dog Patch. Snuffle mats are a rubber mat with fleece tied onto it to make a type of small rug. When you hide treats in it, dogs love to “snuff” them out!
  • Create cards for the employees working at the Dog Patch to thank them for all they do.
  • Learn about how this organization helps dogs and how it’s our responsibility to care for animals in need.

What You Need to Bring

Bring yourselves and be ready to tie some snuffle mats. We’ll provide all of the supplies.

Where and When

We’ll meet at Naperville Bank & Trust’s Community Room on Saturday, November 23rd, at 10:30 am to make the toys. At around 11:45 am, any of the families that would like can follow the Inside Out Club lead volunteer to Dog Patch to drop off the mats. Please note: If you can only make the first part of the event, that is fine.

Practicing kindness and caring for those in need is not only a great time but also a fabulous lifelong skill!
