These were gifts and the pups loved them. They were throwing them up in the air and playing. Thank you!

About

We are friends who met several years ago at Busy Fingers, a sewing group at The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago. We range in age from 40 to 70 and have diverse talents. Marsha is an accomplished seamstress and hand quilter. Terry photographs the toys. Lisa assists with toy production. Together Lisa and Terry tend to the business side of things. Every dog toy and cat toy we sell is designed and carefully handcrafted by one of us in Chicago.

We design and make innovative, fun, high quality toys for your cats and dogs.

Our experience designing and sewing toys and beds for shelter animals has helped us create fabulous toys for your pets. Every Critter Project Inc. toy is carefully handcrafted by one of us.

Critter Project Inc. uses 100% of its profit for animal care efforts such as beds and toys for shelter animals. A bed and toys are very important to a shelter cat or dog because it reduces stress. Less stress makes the animals calmer and less susceptible to illness. Calm, healthy cats and dogs are more likely to find loving forever homes.
