Comfort for Critters

~ Celebrating 12 Years & 74,000+ 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! If you'd like to see the difference we're making....check out our video here!

(Over 1,800 donated in March)

A donation of any amount will help us keep going & help us keep shipping our blankets!

Help Ship Blankets!

We rely on the generosity of animal lovers to help us ship 1,000 - 2,000 free blankets to animal shelters each month! All our merchandise is personally made (blankets & earrings) or designed (t-shirts) by Linda, CFC's founder.  All funds raised keep us going and keep us shipping blankets. Thank you for helping!

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 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!

Help us ship blankets

 Linda, CFC's founder, creates "Remnants Reborn" and "Rainbow Promise" 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!
