How did Funky Mutt begin? A rather simple question that I am often asked, and I always smile as a preface to the answer: "With a GREAT cause"... 200 collars were made by Funky Mutt to donate for a local 'no kill' animal shelter in desperate need of a new location. The rescue needed to be rescued. Their current location was very unsuitable, as it often flooded, became infested with every know insect to man, and was in a terrible location. The volunteers were able to raise over $20,000 dollars in one day for the cause, and needless to say, they (the shelter organization) found their new home! With that said, Funky Mutt (having sold all 200+ collars) began it's operation. The orders were pouring in. Three sewing machines later, an addition for a studio, and countless hours of research/development, Funky Mutt was on it's way!

It's funny, because people often ask me, "do you ever get bored with such a monotonous job when making large volumes of collars?" How could I? Knowing that these items will be adorned on family pets who are so loved and well taken care of, never abandoned, abused or neglected! We've become a part of thousands of families over the years, and each time one is sent out, I know that it will be received with love and gratitude...because it is made with the same!

We still donate, rescue, and find ways to help local shelters. It's an ongoing labor of love... but one heck of a way to feel good about changing the world!
