Comfort for Critters depends solely on the generosity of animal lovers to help us ship our free blankets to over 400 animal shelters across the US. We donate over 1,500 blankets each and every month, and even the shipping is free for the shelters!
Comfort for Critters' founder, Linda, publishes e-books of her favorite pet blanket patterns and uses leftover yarn to create "Remnants Reborn" blankets to raise funds. All purchases keep CFC going and keep CFC shipping our free blankets to shelters!
Since 2007 Comfort for Critters has provided free, handmade blankets to animal shelters across the US. While these pets await adoption, the blankets provide a comfortable bed year-round. When they are adopted, their blanket goes with them, providing something familiar as they adjust to their “forever family”. We now support over 400 shelters and have donated over 125,000 blankets!
For the first time, we're sharing our most trusted patterns with the world via this PDF e-book! Each of the "perfect patterns to pamper pets" has been developed by CFC's founder and used to create adorable blankets for animal shelter pets. If you love pets and love crochet, this is the easiest way to get started, and get helping!
The e-book covers the foundation of Comfort for Critters and the resources they provide to all volunteers. It also discusses animal sheltering in the US and the myriad of blessings these blankets provide to the shelters and even to the volunteers who make them. Of course 30 easy-to-do crochet patterns are included with clear photographs of the finished blankets. For the finishing touch, there are pictures of grateful shelter pets and words of thankfulness sprinkled throughout. Enjoy!
Comfort for Critters is a volunteer program that creates free handmade blankets to comfort homeless pets living in animal shelters across the US. We support over 400 shelters, which are in every US state!

Thank you so much for mybeautiful blankets. My two cats are loving them…and the catnip toys! What a wonderful organization! I love knowing that my purchase enabled other furry friends to receive a soft warm blanket. Also, thank you for the note letting me know who would be receiving the blankets. You are providing a wonderful service. Thank you again!
Linda Kastiel Kozlowski
Founder & Owner
Comfort for Critters was founded by Linda Kastiel Kozlowski, after she adopted a kitten named "Anna," and wanted to do something for all the pets which she couldn't take home that day.
Instead of bringing in old towels, as was suggested, she asked if she could crochet blankets for the cats and dogs, never envisioning she was starting on a road which would bring thousands of blankets into shelters across the US.
In her "spare" time she's the chief cook and bottle washer for Comfort for Critters. She's loves all God's creatures, from Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches to newborn kittens. She's had most of them as pets, as well!
She endeavors to demonstrate that love by making blankets to comfort all the "critters" waiting to join families. She's grateful to her many volunteers for truly paving the way on the Comfort for Critters journey!
