There are thousands of dogs in shelters around the world waiting to be adopted. And while they wait patiently for a home to welcome and love them forever, these dogs rely on shelter staff and volunteers to care for and keep them company.
This is the most rewarding job a dog lover can do, and he does his best to provide love and care to these animals.
However, the 89-year-old Maisie Green knitted more than 450 blankets to help the shelters dogs stay warm during cold nights at the kennel.
A few years ago, a dog shelter in England called Dogs Trust launched an initiative asking people to knit dog coats.
This initiative helps homeless dog owners keep their four-legged friends warm during the cold winter months.
The idea of helping animals with knits was very appealing to Green. After all, she loves to knit and she has a lot of talent, so why not share this incredible talent with those who need it?
“I love knitting and I love dogs, so it’s a great combination of both! It takes me three days to knit a blanket and a day to knit a dog coat. It keeps me busy and I often like to knit while watching TV. I am happy to help in one way or another the four-legged residents of the center, “said the 89-year-old lady.
Apparently, Green has been doing the right thing for 3 years now. She gives blankets and coats three times a year and each time, with the help of her family, brings over a dozen hand-made puppy products.
“Maisie regularly donates her knitted gifts and we are very grateful for her support. As the cold of the winter months really begins to invade us, I know our dogs are happy to use them wisely – and love to feel warm! “, Said the head of the Rehoming Center of Dogs Trust Basildon.
