There are numerous canines at shelters awaiting adoption. Puppies depend on shelter staff members and volunteers to take care of them and keep them company as they patiently wait for the forever home that they without a doubt deserve. Dog lovers work hard to provide these animals the love and care they need because it’s the most fulfilling job there is.
However, among the group of thoughtful workers, one particular woman stood out. Over 450 blankets have been knitted by 89-year-old Maisie Green from the UK to keep the dogs at the shelter comfortable during the chilly evenings they spend in kennels. An effort to knit dog coats was launched a few years ago by the Dogs Trust, an English canine rescue. “Are you good with needles or a crochet hook? For our Hope Project Christmas hampers, we’re asking all creative types to bring homemade dog coats, the shelter announced on Facebook.
This program has been assisting homeless dog owners in providing warmth for their canine companions during the chilly winter months. Green found the notion of using knitting to aid animals to be quite interesting; after all, she loves knitting and is an excellent knitter, so why not help those in need by using this incredible talent?
I adore knitting and dogs, so this is the perfect combination of the two! A blanket takes me three days to knit, while a dog coat takes me one day. Because it keeps me occupied, I frequently like knitting while watching television. I’m thrilled to be contributing in some manner to the center’s inhabitants who have four legs, the 89-year-old lady added.
Green has reportedly been doing the kind deed for three years. Three times a year, she contributes blankets and coats, and each time, with the assistance of her family, she also brings in more than a dozen handcrafted items for the dogs. “Maisie frequently donates knitted items, and we are incredibly appreciative of her help. Our dogs are delighted to utilize the products and adore feeling extra cozy, especially now that the winter chill is starting to set in. remarked the Dogs Trust Basildon Rehoming Center Manager.
