About Us

Mother Daughter Duo

Meet Susan (Sue) and Heather, mom & daughter duo who founded Ruthie & the Misfits out of their passion for helping animals & rescue groups in need (& high quality, homemade products!).

Your pets are your family. They deserve the best in quality & design - and our products meet those standards. 

Sue, mom of three, and sewing extraordinaire is the main fabricator of all the original designs you see in the boutique. 

Heather, mom of four rescue dogs and two rescue cats, has been a licensed veterinary technician for 23 years. She has a knack for design.

Together, they create handmade one-of-a-kind pet goods, from customized name tags to party hats for your beloved cats & dogs.
