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

Wow! She's giving back in a big way.

When it comes to working with shelter animals, there’s no shortage of opportunities at local rescue organizations.

Whether you’re interested in walking dogs, fostering, cleaning out kennels or assisting with adoption events, most local rescue organizations are grateful for the help they receive from volunteers.

However, one British woman has found a unique way to give back to animals in need: She knits sweaters and blankets to keep them warm!

The woman, Maisie Green, has reportedly used her special skills to knit hundreds of dog coats and blankets over the years. All of them have been donated to the rescue dogs at the Dogs Trust Basildon shelter in the United Kingdom.
