About ouafouaf

Sales 363
On Etsy since 2011

We have always found our dogs and cats at rehoming centres and, although the house is full at the moment, I wanted to help out in some other way.
I already have a shop selling my hand made items on Etsy and it seemed natural to turn my hand to dog-related items and sell them with a percentage of the profits going to a wonderful place called 'Twilight' - a retirement home for old or disabled dogs run by Leanne and Mike who explain how 'Twilight' came into being here:-

"We started Twilight in the summer of 2009, in memory of losing our Kizzy, and
needing to find a friend for our elderly but happy retriever, Teg.
It became evident, searching the pounds and refuges, that if you were an old
dog, life was not always so good, and your ending might be premature and/or without dignity.
So now we offer limited places for elderly dogs who are lost, abandoned or bereaved of their owners.

We are not a formal refuge, just mere volunteers with the time, space and love to share our calm home with the dogs ?en famille?. Twilight, La Maison de Retraite pour Les Chiens, the old doggies home."

I decided to open a new shop with just the dog collars and bandanas in and hope to add some new items as time goes on.
You can read more about Twilight here http://twilightchiens.com/

Thank you for visiting my shop and be assured that any purchase will help the dogs by enabling veterinary treatment, food and anything else needed to make their last days more comfortable.

Oh, and, the shop name 'ouaf' - it's what French dogs say instead of 'woof''.

Shop members

  • Ouaf

    Owner, Photographer, Dog Whisperer

    Dog lover and sewing machine owner. By combining the two I hope I can make the world a little better for a few abandoned, neglected, abused and lost dogs.

  • Flo

    Model, Cat Tamer

    The newest addition to the family. A lost dog, she was taken to the animal shelter where she spent 7 weeks until we spotted her.

  • Stan

    Model, Tennis Ball Chaser

    We found him running about in the road and took him to the vet but, when his owners were traced via microchip, they didn't want him any more so we had to keep this handsome boy.

  • Taz


    This is our old boy. He was thrown from a car when he was a puppy and some passers by took him in to the local vet where I just happened to be with one of my cats. The rest is history.
