Comfort for Critters

Celebrating 17 years & 195,000+ comforted shelter pets!

We'd love to hear from you...

We're headquartered just west of Chicago, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, but we support animal shelters all across the country. We welcome you to join in the fun and become one of our volunteers!

Please check out our Volunteer Resources page to download our volunteer kit, and then visit our Animal Shelters Supported page to find the nearest shelter which participates in our program.

We also welcome your feedback and questions. Please use the form on this page and we'll reply as quickly as we can!

Please mail, or drop off, all donations of yarn and fleece for our free blankets to our headquarters in Glen Ellyn, IL. We also accept blankets from local volunteers.

We ask that if you plan to ship us blankets from out of state, you instead ship them directly to a shelter in your state (see our list of "Animal Shelters We Support" on this website). You can email me at for the shelter near you, most in need of blankets!

If you are personally dropping something off, we have a large pick-up/drop-off bin (ie. bench, whose seat opens for storage) to the left of the front door, for 24/7 access.

Please leave your name and email on whatever you drop off, so that we can send a thank you note.  Thank you!
