Your pets can be decked out in Missouri-made apparel thanks to Mount Vernon-based Collar Craft. The locally owned business features a wide array of dog and cat collars, leashes, and even clothing. Everything is made onsite by a team of 13 employees headed by owner Betty McCullah.
The business started in 1958, and when the original owner was ready to retire, Betty and her husband stepped in and bought the business in 1966. At the time, it was based in the state of California, but the McCullahs moved to Mount Vernon three years after buying Collar Craft. The pet accessory company ships their products all over the United States and overseas to Europe and Japan.
The two most popular dog collars are the Beverly, which has one row of jewels, and the Fleetwood with two rows. Collars range in size from six to 26. For more information call 417-466-7266.
