This is not taxidermy, but a chance to turn images of your dog into a plush toy. Shelter Pups makes custom wool stuffed dogs while helping local animal rescues and shelters. By submitting pictures of your dog, they will craft an average size 11 x 7 Shelter Pup for you and your four legged friend to bring home. Portions of sales go directly to helping rescues and shelters in your local area which makes this a total win win. From the before and after shots on the site, they do great work, but I wouldn’t let your pup use his new likeness as a chew toy because that is just wrong. Now all the cat lovers out there shouldn’t feel left out because the felines are coming in 2013.
