When you are well into your eighties, you are the one who usually needs constant attention and care. We do not have the physical and mental resources to even think of helping another, leave alone doing something for them. But this grandma has spun a different tale of care and love for dogs at a local shelter. She has knitted 450 blankets and coats for the pups and dogs at the shelter.
Dogs Trust, the 127-year-old charity that takes care of dogs, shared her heart-warming tale of love and perseverance on Instagram. The lady is 89-year-old Maisie Green and she knits the coats and blankets for the charity Dogs Trust, Basildon. It is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK and Ireland and has 20 re-homing centers caring for over 16,000 unwanted and abandoned dogs each year.
In this age of automation, she has relied on her hands to knit for these mutts. It makes the experience more real and she feels even closer to the dogs. Her work has combined two of the things close to her heart – dogs and knitting. Her unique way of helping her furry friends had saved many from the bitter English cold. She is assisted in her loving endeavor by her family. They take her to the shelter thrice a year and helps her unload her knitted love.
Little Drops Of Water
The UK provides a home for thousands of homeless dogs and provides rehabilitation. It is angels like Maisie Green who chip-in in their own way and save the already over-stretched resources of the charities and saves many a dog from being put to sleep because no one is willing to care for or adopt them.

Such interaction between animals and humans is beneficial for both as the elderly also find solace in their lonely years. She stays happily immersed in her knitting and probably even does it while watching television. It is both a mission and a delight to be able to serve the animals.
Maisie is not only helping the animals at the shelter. She is an inspiration for the elderly and others like her can take heart that they too can contribute in their own way to the society. They need not feel unwanted and can look up to this daring lady.
As the bitter chill of the English winter sets in the animals know that they have a warm hearted lady to see them through the long winter.
