LitterCritters® is a separately owned business launched by our Proprietress, Diane Smith. Founded on her lifelong principle of reusing materials rather than disposing of them in environmentally unhealthy ways, the LitterCritters company helps employ local artisans to craft treasures from materials disposed of in local waterways and otherwise beautiful landscapes. 

Hand-crafted with love by local artisans, your Litter Critter is made from locally reclaimed garments and fabric that might otherwise have ended up in in our landfill. Each unique furry creature is also stuffed with 100% American-made recycled plastics so you can feel good knowing that you are participating in reducing, reusing, and recycling materials.

We are now featuring an assortment of these fuzzy friends in The Litter Critters® Shop at BuddyLou’s in Hancock, Maryland. Stop by during our regular hours to take a peek at the variety of critters in a wide range of fabrics and colors. Each animal is unique so you can be sure your new pet fits your style and décor.
