Linda The Dog just LOVES her Stuffed Animal Squeak Toys. She has played with them so much that they are destroyed, so now it is time for replacements. I have gone EVERYWHERE and can’t find a toy that is NOT made in china. Doesn’t ANY American Company make these any more? I REFUSE to buy ANY product made in China. Not even for my Dog who doesn’t understand world politics.
Try etsy.com for handmade toys.
You can make them by hand from socks and old fleece shirts. However, the plastic ‘squeaks’ are probably made in China.
Check out thrift stores for used stuffed animals and insert the ‘squeaky’. Save some money;)
p.s. The reason dogs love to destroy them is to stop the squeaking.
and you are welcome!

I found stuffed toys at Christmas time made in the USA, I was shocked.
I got mine at Petsmart.
Just go to your local Sally Ann or Goodwill or Saint Vincent dePaul’s and buy some used stuffies. It matters not where they came from, and you will be helping the less fortunate.
My GF’s mom (who works at a Goodwill outlet) sets aside stuffies for us, since we have FAR too many dogs. We gladly pay the $1-$2 each, and the toys last as long as 3 weeks!
You can make an anonymous donation (the ONLY charity that IS charity, afaiac), and get stuff for your furbuddies, for CHEAP!
Then you get to watch them play!
How much fun is THAT?
Here’s a couple.
