We will be collecting donations of crocheted and knitted baby hats, sweaters and blankets to World Vision's Knit for Kids program. These items will be going to impoverished areas such as Armenia, Nicaragua, Swaziland, and Tanzania.  Just continue to mail the donations to From Ewe to You and include a note that you would like them to go to the Knit for Kids program. From Ewe to You will package everything and make sure it gets to the appropriate place.

From Ewe to You Helps the Animals

Here are some statistics from the ASPCA.

Shelters

  •  5-7 million animals enter shelters each year.
  •  3-4 million of those animals are euthanized.
  •  Animals in shelters are divided equally by those given up by owners and those found on the street.
  •  Only 10% of animals received by shelters are spayed or neutered.

Pet Ownership

  •  The average cost of raising a cat or a dog is $700-$875 annually.
  •  The cost of spaying or neutering is less than raising puppies or kittens for one year.
  •   Dogs that are microchipped have a 90% chance of being returned to owners.

Overpopulation

  •  It is impossible to determine how many stray dogs and cats there are in the United States.
  •  Cats that are not spayed produce 1-2 litters a year with 4-6 kittens a litter.
  •  Dogs that are not spayed produce 1 litter a year with 4-6 puppies a litter.
  •  5 out of 10 dogs and 7 out of 10 cats are destroyed because there is not enough room or supplies at shelters.
