Lovingly Crafted Organic Pet Toys

Purrfectplay's Mission:
We lovingly craft toxin free natural dog and cat toys here in the USA, providing families and their pets with safe joyful play. For more toys and information visit our website at http://purrfectplay.com

Our Story:
I was the kind of young girl who always had a cat on her lap. I loved art, cats, and nature. When I grew up, I studied Art and Biology and adopted a fur family of my own.

Finding toys worthy of our family was a big problem. Most toys were made in China from bright synthetic materials and were just not safe. So, we started making our own toys. Eventually, we decided to share them and started Purrfectplay!

We make our toys in our Indiana workshop-- lovingly crafted, safe, and joyously fun. No synthetics, all natural, and no plastics-- just the organic fibers pets naturally love. If Mother Nature doesn't make it, we don't use it.

We gratefully share 3% of each sale with rescue organizations. http://purrfectplay.com/giving-back-to-pet-rescue/

We offset our carbon use by contributing to local and regional land preservation groups. http://purrfectplay.com/purrfectplays-carbon-footprint/

We are members of Green America http://purrfectplay.com/green-america/ and
The Hoosier Environmental Council http://purrfectplay.com/hoosier-environmental-council

    Owner, Designer, Creator

    As a little girl, I spent much of my childhood with a cat on my lap. As a teen, I designed cat toys, stuffed toys, doll clothes, and my own clothes. Life has circled back to my first loves: cats (dogs) & creating. For me, it doesn't get much better.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 19, 2020
We are a simple business. We design our pet toys to be durable and fun, using only organic natural fibers. If Mother Nature didn't create the fiber, we don't use it.

Our products are crafted in our home based workshop or in our local community member's homes. Each toy and gift item is individually produced. We are not trying to sell "pallets" of goods, instead we are working to understand what our customers want, on a one to one basis. Each of our customers and their pets is important and valuable to us.

We live with our own menagerie of pets and flora. Our karma is deeply linked to the pet world. We are thankful and humbled by the love and wisdom they have passed on to us over the years.

From our beginning we have been dedicated to a sustainable business model. We offset our carbon foot print with a local land preservation fund, Shirley Heinze. We are members of Green America and AmericanMadeMatters, along with many other organizations. We gratefully give 5% of each and every sale to no kill/rescue organizations. We hope you will find a way to contribute to one of these groups too!

We strive to produce the best toys possible for your pets while keeping you informed about the role synthetics and chemicals play in undermining your pets' health and the welfare of our planet.

Returns and exchange details
Like people, cats and dogs are individuals and enjoy or don't enjoy things in different ways. If you find your cat or dog does not enjoy one of our products, please let us know and we will try to work thru this in a fair way.

Durability with dog toys is truly unpredictable. We do not guarantee our toys against destruction. We design our toys to be durable and use tough natural fibers and... some dogs just love to rip toys up-- this is the way they play. Please consider the nature of your dog before asking us to refund a toy he or she really enjoyed "killing".

It is our goal to make your pets happy and to provide safe earth and pet friendly products. We are always open to discussion and feedback.
Payment is due with purchase using direct checkout on Etsy or PayPal. Orders placed with a e-check or PayPal that required days to clear will not be shipped until that payment has been cleared.
Items will be shipped 1 - 3 business days after payment is received. Please let us know in advance if you need your purchase ASAP and we will do our best to get it to you as quickly as possible.

*** Since shipping is included in the price of many of our products, if you give us the wrong address you will be responsible for the price of shipping to a corrected address OR if we cancel your order because it can not be delivered-- we will deduct the cost of shipping from your refund. If we make the mistake we will do whatever is needed to get you your order in a timely fashion, with no extra cost to you.

** We will let you know when your package has shipped so you can look for it. Catnip toy packages left on doorsteps can sometimes end up in your neighbor's cat's paws!

All items are shipped USPS Priority or First Class Mail depending on the weight.

We will ship your package directly to your friend/family as a gift. We are happy to include a personalized gift card-- please just leave us a note when you order.

We have had very good luck with USPS but if you have concerns you might purchase insurance.

Purrfectplay is not responsible for possible duties / taxes. ** please note, some of our non USA customers are experiencing higher than usual tariff fees. Just an FYI- we have no power over this, sadly.

We are not responsible if a package goes missing after we ship it. We will help all we can if your package gets lost, but that is very very rare.
