There are many ways you can get involved in a shelter to help. Giving food, fostering and walking the dogs are just some. But a woman in the UK has a unique way of showing her love to these dogs in a shelter. Why?

Maisie Green, 89, a woman from Britain has used her knitting skills to make dogs feel loved and comfortable at the Dog Trust Basildon Shelter over the years.   She has made hundreds of sweaters and blankets for the dear furry animals.

Maisie makes them at home and her family helps her deliver her donations to the shelter three times a year. She shared on the Animal Rescue Site that it takes her three days to knit a blanket and one day to knit a doggy coat. Her love for both knitting and dogs is just a perfect combination for her cause. Knitting projects, she said, gave her a sense of purpose in life too.

Knitting makes her busy and she likes to do it while watching TV. “I’m delighted to be helping the four-legged residents at the center in some way,” she cited.

Dogs Trust Basildon noted that in December 2018, a total of 450 knitted items were donated by Maisie. These sweaters and blankets help dogs a lot to make them feel cozy especially in the winter season. And of course, they all looked so cute in them!

Dog Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. This 127-year-old organization is a home to 16,000 abandoned and stray dogs yearly.

Thanks to Maisie for her love and devotion. Even at her golden age, she is still serving her purpose.  The shelter is so lucky to have her.
