Comfort for Critters

~ Celebrating 11 Years & 69,000+ Blankets ~

Who We Are...

Comfort for Critters is a volunteer program that donates free handmade blankets to comfort homeless pets living in animal shelters across the US. We support over 200 shelters, which 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."

We are always in need of supplies, shipping funds and more crafters. Please consider joining the team!

"remnants Reborn" Help Ship Blankets!

We rely on the generosity of animal lovers to help us ship 1,000+ free blankets to animal shelters each month! CFC's founder makes a handful of "Remnants Reborn" blankets each month, using leftover yarn and fleece, which are offered for sale on Amazon, Etsy and this website. Proceeds keep CFC going and keep us shipping free blankets to shelters!          Click here to check them out!

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. If you do send them to headquarters, please consider a donation to help us ship them out!

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, with all proceeds used to support CFC and raise shipping funds (more info here). All these blankets are created using the remnant yarn or fleece, left after shelter blankets are created. You can help by purchasing one of these  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.

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 yarn or fleece pieces of 12" or larger will be gratefully accepted.

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