Comfort for Critters

~ Celebrating 10 Years & 50,000 Blankets ~

Who We Are...

Comfort for Critters is a volunteer program that creates free handmade blankets to comfort homeless pets living in animal shelters across the US. We support over 200 shelters, who are in every US state!

While these pets await adoption, the blankets provide a comfortable bed year-round. When they are adopted, their blanket goes with them, providing something familiar as they adjust to their "forever family."

Helping all those pets we can't adopt!


That's how many FREE handmade blankets we have given to animal shelters as of . . .

(Over 1,300 donated last month!)

Comfort your pet & help ship blankets!

As a non-profit we rely solely on the generosity of animal lovers to help us ship, on average, 1,000 free blankets to animal shelters each month!


CFC's founder makes a handful of blankets each month which are offered for sale to support CFC. Please consider purchasing a blanket via the secure Etsy or Amazon websites and help us ship blankets!!!            (More info)

4 ways to help homeless pets today . . .

Make a Blanket!

If you know how to knit, crochet, sew, or just use scissors - why not start on a critter blanket today?

We have step by step directions and even free patterns!

They're fast to make, and lots of fun! Once you have a few done, you can send them to a a participating shelter in your state (please let me know when you do), or to CFC headquarters for distribution to a shelter.

This is also the perfect project for a scouting group, bible study, retirement home or any charitable group. It's a great way to have fun and do good at the same time!

Help us ship blankets

 Linda, CFC's founder, creates "Remnants Reborn" blankets, sold on Etsy & Amazon, to support CFC and raise shipping funds (more info here). All these blankets are created using the remnant yarn, left after shelter blankets are created. You can help by purchasing one of these pet blankets for yourself, or a friend.

Each blanket includes a card which explains that a box of handmade blankets will be shipped to a shelter in need, because of the purchase.

Or....a simple donation of any amount will help us ship our blankets!

Donate Yarn or Fleece

If you have extra yarn or fleece, we can put it to good use! Both full skeins and partial-skein leftovers are used. Any amount, any color, 4-ply yarn or fleece pieces of 12" or larger will be gratefully accepted.

We provide 800+ blankets per month to animal shelters across the US, completely free of charge. We also provide free materials to a handful of retirement homes near our headquarters in Illinois. So we never have enough yarn and fleece, and we never waste a bit!
