This is 89-year-old Maisie Green.



Maisie has hand-knitted 450 dog coats and blankets for abandoned pooches at the The Dog’s Trust re-homing center in Islington, UK. Ms Green donates her gifts to the center three times a year.





The Basildon Standard reports:

She said: “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.





Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity with 20 Rehoming Centres across the UK and Ireland. They care for over 16,000 stray, unwanted and abandoned dogs each year. You can find out more about their work here.
