89-year-old Maisie Green from the UK has knitted over 450 blankets to help dogs at the shelter stay warm during the cold nights they spend in kennels.

A couple of years ago, a dog shelter in England called Dogs Trust started an initiative asking people to knit dog coats.

The idea of helping animals by knitting was very appealing to Green, after all, she loves knitting and she’s very good at it so why not share this amazing skill with those in need?

“I love knitting and I love dogs, so this combines both wonderfully! It takes me three days to knit a blanket and one day to knit a doggy coat. It keeps me busy and often, I like to knit whilst watching television. I’m delighted to be helping the four-legged residents at the center in some way,” the 89-year-old-lady said.

Green has been doing the good deed for 3 years now. She donates blankets and coats three times a year and each time with the help of her family, she brings in more than a dozen handmade goods for the pups.

“Maisie regularly brings along her knitted donations and we are so grateful for her support. With the chill of the winter months really starting to creep up on us, I know our dogs are very pleased to put the items to good use – and love feeling extra cosy!” said the Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Basildon.
