Yes. Although the pandemic is winding down, supply chains worldwide are still affected and we fall into that supply chain. We continue to operate at half-capacity. Most of our stuffies going forward will be affected by shortages and possible delays until the full crisis lifts. We will do our best to keep everyone updated (Check our Instagram page for up-to-the-minute updates) but our priority is to make sure our employees and everyone else is SAFE and HEALTHY. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered the most during this crisis. We ask not to forget the animals. They are suffering along with us. Love your pets.
Yep. But rescued dogs only. Keep in mind that in addition to the rescues that we're all familiar with, it also includes any dog that has had human intervention to save their life in some way. That could mean a dog bought from a breeder who suddenly develops a life-threatening ailment; if that dog is saved from euthanasia by a human and treated, that qualifies as a rescue to us. Another example would be a dog who was saved from drowning.
Dogs simply purchased from a breeder do not qualify. We care about dogs in jeopardy. Where they come from, it doesn't matter.
Lack of hygiene of our sales reps is our first guess.
We're privately funded. Plus side is that we have total control. Down side is we can't make many. Super down side is we must have "Complaints of the Month" instead of FAQs.
Why are you so weird?
It's a simple one. To introduce the next generation to the idea of rescuing a dog as opposed to purchasing one. If they own a stuffie as a child that has a real story of rescue attached to it, they will grow up familiar with rescuing. Then, hopefully, rescue a dog in the future. The contest we hold is another way we hopefully inspire rescuing.
That's actually our fault. The head design and the body design are always separate drawings. And the factory keeps using the same damn drawing we gave them in 2016 no matter how much we yell over the phone.

Yes. That is, we supply Pibborafi Rescue plushes to shelters and rescues for free so they can sell or auction them off and keep 100% of the profits for treating abandoned and abused dogs. We also donate a portion of proceeds of some plushies to rescues and shelters. If you want to call that a gimmick then yes, we gimmick the hell out of it.
Unless it's true. Then it's not fake news.
Check our Instagram page and pibborafiinsider.com for the latest updates on when the instructions appear. Best to follow us and you won't miss them.
We like your thinking. Email your resume to us here, please. Include a cover letter.
You're forgiven. And, all of them. It's just me right now. Let me have your resume. Are you good with picking up dry cleaning, and deferred paychecks until 2026?
Yes! It's a program called Secret Celebrity: It opens up the possibility for a rescue owner to commission our studio to design their pup guaranteed with no bother with selections. Beaux Tox was the first. However, the rules are extremely strict. And a bit of a waiting list for this program. It would actually be easier, and take us less time, to help you land a seat on the next SpaceX flight to Mars. Email us for details (on landing the Secret Celebrity, not the flight to Mars).
Yes! If you're a Contest winner, you can participate in Pibborafi Unlimited where once your pup reaches past a certain sales threshold, you get a portion of profits! We'll send you an invitation to participate once your pup gets to that threshold. A nice easy way to do no work and get money.
Only those approaching it are told that. It's not as high as you think.
Laziness mostly. Designers working too close to their own fridges. Staff tantrums. Generally, we seem to attract delicate flowers who like to get paid to watch clouds. Management is usually stunned when a new plushie does come out, we always have to ask the designers if they're okay.
Yes you are. The list got crazy cuz it was so easy to just enter a name. We sent out a notice to everyone that to be considered now, you must submit a picture on our Instagram to enter our Contest. Yep you, and everyone else, is still considered but we encourage all of you to post on Instagram and get in the Contest, your odds on getting chosen will be much, much, much higher.
We don't control international shipping costs. Our best solution for you is to move to the United States — how hard can that be, right? Let us know when you're here!
Consider us the lottery of the recreated-doggie-in-plush business. That means you enter your dog into our Contest, if your dog wins a category, you get your doggie-in-plush free with free shipping to your home. If your pup is popular, you get profit sharing. For everyone else, all of our shameful creations go for less than twenty bucks.
That's so scandalous we might start doing that to live up to your question. Alas, we actually do choose the dogs from Instagram submissions. But fingers crossed, we may one day measure up to your expectations and in which case, celebrate with cake. Not for you. For us.
A great question!
Take a look into the eyes of almost any animal. What do you see? We see innocent souls that need to be held close and rescued from harm. Dogs are especially important to us and through the funds we can funnel through animal rescues and shelter organizations, we are privileged to help all animals from Great Danes to squirrels and everything in between. The toys are simply a means to that end.
What's your point?
Because. They were.
We believe this is a question for accounting. This is customer service.
Sure. We have a 12-step anger-management program that many are taking advantage of. We have installed cameras in the parking garage so we can minimize break-ins to your cars, and we've gotten rid of "that smell" in the lobby (you're welcome). We also have a gym in the building that no one is allowed to use because it's not owned by us—but it's there, so as far as management's concerned, it counts.
Never. No way. Not a chance. Forget it. Absolutely not. Not even... well, ok. Maybe. If there's food involved. The kind that gets bought for us.
That's perfectly all right. It's your opinion. Hold on, your kindergarten teacher's on the line, she wants to apologize for ignoring you in favor of all the other kids back then. Oh, wait. She's changed her mind. She's good. Never mind.
That seems more of a comment than a question. Please submit to the comment section. FYI: we have no comment section.
We can't name employees because of privacy laws, but you're probably referring to employees like Stephan, or maybe Jonathan, who are in need of intensive counselling. So, in their case the answer to your question is in fact; "Not sure where to begin."
