Clean tab tops from soda and beer cans are woven with ultra durable polyester grosgrain ribbon. A durable snap link closes the collar, while a welded D ring provides a place to hang ID, and to hook a leash.

These collars can be made for any size pet requiring a collar - for use with or without a leash. I have tested mine on my dog Cali and it works like a charm! When dirty - wash with some soap and water.
I WOULD NOT recommend this type of collar for Kittens or Puppies for two reasons: They are a 'fixed' collar - and therefore NOT adjustable, as well as being 'fixed' - it means they DO NOT have a safety release. Puppies and kittens tend to be too rambunctious and would be better off in a safety release type of collar.

How to measure:
Please use a sewing tape measure for better accuracy. Place it around your pets' neck where the collar would fit.

In 2010 I entered the Art of ReUse contest sponsored by ETSY and Green is Universal. This product was voted into the TOP 5 in the nation. They were shown on the Today Show during Earth Week of that year.

I realize this is a lengthy description - but I also wanted to let you know that all of the proceeds for these collars will be used to pay for the previous care of our Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix, Cali.

Abandoned as a pregnant puppy, in March of 2009, Rachel and Oliver found Cali chewing cheese off a pizza box at a paper mill/recycling facility. She had just delivered her puppies - they couldn't find them - but she was so emaciated, that later the vet said they probably all died at birth.
Rachel and Oliver took her home - and took care of her. They paid to have her spayed, gave her special care and fed her for 7+ months. Unfortunately - they couldn't keep her. They already had a dog - a 10 year old German Shepherd that didn't want a puppy around. So they had to keep Cali in a stall in their barn. It wasn't perfect but would work for at least the warmer months.
They weren't going to take her to the local shelter - because their state has a 'immediate kill' policy for all dogs that even resemble a Pit Bull - and she was the sweetest dog ever. Finally in September of 2009, they were able to get her story posted to the Best Friends website. My friend Jennifer saw her there - forwarded the info to us - and the rest is history.

We have the sweetest, dearest dog in the world. Rachel and Oliver were only looking for a good home for sweet Cali. They were so selfless in their care for a dog that so desperately needed love and hope. They never asked to be compensated for all of their expenses - but we would like to help them out.

100% of your purchase of this collar will go to fund the 'gift' to Rachel and Oliver. After this is complete - A portion of each sale will go to our local shelter - as well as a Pit Bull Rescue group.
