Your knitted or crocheted nests can help orphaned baby birds and other small animals thanks to Second Chance Wildlife Rescue
A few weeks ago, a Knitting Nuggets reader named Judy passed along a link sent to her by her niece. The link referenced an organization called Second Chance Wildlife Rescue and mentioned a need for knitted and crocheted nests.
Now if there’s anything I know about charity knitters, it’s that we tend to love animals, and we love doing what we can to help them. When charitable organizations put a call out for any kind of knitting to help animals, responses tend to overwhelm them. So I’m reasonably certain that this call will prove irresistible too!
About Second Chance Wildlife Rescue
Second Chance Wildlife Rescue happens to be located in my home state of Ohio. Volunteers are solely responsible for this non-profit organization, and their mission is simple: to protect and assist wild animals. Donations comprise all their resources. As such, their resources for items like nests for orphaned baby birds and small mammals are quite limited.
As Second Chance told me:
“We are just looking for various sized nests. All of our volunteers are in-home rehabilitators and I know they’d appreciate these items to help care for the orphaned and injured animals they take in.”

How You Can Help Second Chance Wildlife Rescue
Once you have finished making as many nests as you desire, you can send them to this address:
Second Chance Wildlife
C/O Alicia Elam
763 Cascade Rd
Cincinnati, OH 45240
When they receive nests, they will then distribute these to wherever needs them.
Can you think of a better way to help preserve our planet than by helping to take care of some of its most vulnerable citizens? Why not consider knitting or crocheting some nests!
