Who We Are

Our History

Paws-a-bilities was formed in 2008 by Jo Blackstone and her mother, Kris Mathieson.  Pet lovers and firm believers in the importance of rescued pets, both women worked tirelessly to create a concept of an artistic homemade, high-quality product that would serve the needs of pet parents and support the efforts of local shelters. Ms. Blackstone has a rescued beagle of her own, and had sewn a tote bag to carry her boy's car harness, leash and water bottle for trips to the doggy park or pet hotel.  This tote bag served as the beginning of what evolved into beautifully-crafted lined tote bags that are the basis of Paws-a-bilities products.

From there, people were so taken with the colorful totes, Jo and Kris developed additional products to help Pet Parents show off their love of animals. Now there's a whole line of Purrses and accessories that no pet-loving home should be without.

All of our one-of-a-kind products are hand-made in  New Mexico by Jo and Kris. A lot of love goes into every item!
