Snuffle-mat-a-thon 2022!

It's BACK!

⭐ In 2019 Katie from Dogwood and Helen from Cleveland Dogs hosted the world’s first ever Snuffle-mat-a-thon! Our supporters made 29 snuffle mats. Not bad at all!

⭐ Then in 2020 we were back! We made a whopping 51 snufflemats, 61 tug toys and £125, all of which were donated and gratefully received by our local rescue centres. 

⭐ Last year in 2021 we SMASHED our record with 151 mats, snuffle balls and tug toys – tickets raised £350. We shared the spoils between national rescue centres and food banks. 

🤩 Now here we are in 2022 with the world’s fourth Snuffle-mat-a-ton, and can we beat last years’ record?

SURE WE CAN! But we need your help. 

Our Rescue dogs really need us more than ever with all of the uncertainty in our world, and the snuffle mats we make and donate will provide them with enrichment whilst they await their new homes. And with more families than ever relying on food banks this year, let’s try to get a present to ALL dogs on Christmas morning.

We’re inviting you to our action-packed charity event. There’ll be crafting, entertainment and merriment a-plenty. 

The details:

  • Wednesday 7th December, 6.30-8.30pm
  • Snuffle crafting demonstration with Club Dogwood’s Alexis Meadows
  • Entertainment while we make our snuffle mats
  • We’ll send you the list of all the supplies you need for the evening, plus crafting instructions

We know times are tight, so this year we have a Pay What You Can policy. The emphasis will be our snuffle mat targets rather than ticket sales. Suggested donation £10. We hope that helps. 

See you then?

Please contact Helen at to book your place.

Oh but wait!

If you’ve attended our Snufflematathon events in the past, you’ll know that in addition to the snuffle mats themselves, every year an expert guests joins us to demonstrate now to make a BRAND NEW snuffle creation! 

This year Club Dogwood member and pro crafter Alexis Meadows is guiding us through the step by step process to make a Snuffle Sausage! Gift it to your dog this Christmas, or donate to a rescue.

We can’t wait! You will be sent the materials list when you buy your ticket. 

How cute is this little sausage?!

Calling all product businesses!

We’re seeking products to offer as raffle prizes, to boost our fundraising efforts for rescue centres and food banks. 

Do you sell or make products, and could you help by donating a prize that can be posted to the UK please? We will promote your business on social media.

Please email Helen at if you can help.
