Comfort for Critters

Celebrating 14 years in business & 119,000+ FREE pet blankets donated to animal shelters!

Who We Are...

Comfort for Critters is a social entrepreneurship that sells one-of-a kind, handmade pet blankets, and ebooks to help you make your own! But we're "in business" to help homeless pets! 

All net proceeds go to ship our free handmade blankets to 400+ animal shelters in every US state! These blankets are made by our amazing volunteers, and you're welcome to join the team!

While homeless 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." Together we're making a difference to animal shelters & pets!

119,893

That's how many FREE handmade blankets have been donated by CFC to animal shelters as of

May 18, 2021

A gift of any amount directly funds the blanket donations we make to animal shelters & you'll receive our "Comforting the Critters" ebook!

(Please note: We do not have 501(c)3 tax status for our free blanket program for shelters.)

handmade pet blankets & ebooks so you can make your own!

4 ways to help homeless pets today . . .

Help us ship our free blankets

 Linda, CFC's founder, makes handmade pet blankets and creates ebooks of crochet patterns, so that you can make your own blankets! Sales keeps CFC in business, with net proceeds all going to ship the free blankets our volunteers make for animal shelters across the US. 

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

join the team & 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 directly to a a participating shelter in your state (please let me know when you do), or contact us and we'll help you find a shelter right near you.

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!

Donate Yarn or Fleece

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

Click here for the address to drop off or ship materials!

We provide 1,000-2,000 blankets per month to 400+ animal shelters across the US, completely free of charge. We also provide free materials to local volunteers near our headquarters in Illinois. So we never have enough yarn and fleece, and we never waste a bit!
