If you are looking for opportunities to cooperate with sheltered animals, then you will find that opportunities and methods are not lacking. There are many things that can be done, such as walking the dog, fostering, cleaning the kennel or assisting in adoption activities-whatever it is, most local rescuers are happy to get any help from volunteers.

I Love Knitting and I Love Dogs

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.”

With all the knitting, it is obvious that she is happy to help dogs in need because they are looking for their forever home. Maisie knits in batches, and her family helps her drive to the shelter three times a year to give up the donation for knitting.
She also said that the knitting project filled her with a sense of purpose.
“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 Note

Dogs Trust Basildon noted that by December 2018, Maisie had prolifically knitted 450 items for the shelter animals to keep them warm.

The dogs at the shelter seem to love having knitted items, whether they’re from Maisie or somewhere else. Plus, they look so cute when they’re using them.
