89-Year-Old Woman Knitted 450 Blankets And Coats For Shelter Dogs


When it comes to working with shelter animals, there is so much that can be done, such as walking dogs, fostering, cleaning kennels, or assisting with adoption event. Most local rescues are happy to have any kind of help from volunteers.

But one woman has found a very unique way to assist animals in need: she knitted them sweaters and blankets, she is Maisie Green, a 89-years-old woman from Britain.

Maisie Green has used her knitting skills in order to create hundreds of coats and blankets for dogs over the years. She’s donated all of them to the rescue dogs of the Dogs Trust Basildon shelter in the United Kingdom.

She can be seen proudly seen standing in front of her knitted creations for the rescue pets in the Dogs Trust Instagram page.

She said to the Dogs Trust Basildon, “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 is clear that she enjoys helping the dogs in need as they look for their forever homes. Maisie knits in batches, and her family help her drive over to the shelter three times per year in order to drop off her knitted donations.

“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,” she said.

Dogs Trust Basildon noted that by December 2018, Maisie had prolifically knitted 450 items for the shelter animals to keep them warm. They look so cute when they are using them.

What Maisie Green is doing, definitely is such a sweet way to give back. The animals appreciate all her wonderful donations to them. They seem to love having knitted items.
