When we think about it, if we want this world to be a much better place for each and every one of us, including all the animals we share it with, we need to care for one another. And no matter how little can we give, it may mean the world to someone.
Maisie Green is an 89-year-old lady who is making a profound change in the lives of the dogs who end up in shelters because of one reason or another. These creatures are spending their days waiting for the right person to enter through the door and choose them to be their loyal best friend until the end of their lives. But until that happens, many of the canines feel lonely and miss the warmth of a real home. Thankfully, Maisie is there to make their waiting a bit more cozy by knitting blankets for them.
So far, this sweet lady has knitted around 450 blankets and she’s not planning to stop.
Her huge love for dogs and knitting got blended in something extremely cute and useful, and now millions are praising her for her genuine act of kindness.
“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 said, as per Bored Panda.
She says knitting keeps her busy and she usually does it while watching TV. Of course, she doesn’t find it hard, but pleasurable, because she knows a dog gets happier with each of her hand-made pieces.
“I’m delighted to be helping the four-legged residents at the center in some way,” she says.
The Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Basildon said: “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!”
Maisie, thank you for your love and commitment. You truly are one special lady.
