Have your say

It’s time to dust off your knitting gear to help keep the furry pups at Jerry Green Dog Rescue warm this winter.

The Algarkirk charity is encouraging knitters and craft groups to give in to their love of dogs and knit jumpers, blankets, snoods or even toys to help keep their elderly and short-haired dogs comfortable during the colder months.

“Whether you’re already a keen knitter, or just waiting for the perfect excuse to start, there’s no need to wait any longer!” said Jenny Harris, fundraiser at Jerry Green.

“We work hard to make sure our dogs are as comfortable as possible all year round, but particularly during the winter when they are most vulnerable to extremes of cold weather.

“Knitted items are really cosy and snuggly for dogs that feel the cold to curl up in or to keep them warm whilst out walking in the colder weather.

“Support for The Great Doggy Knit Off has been fantastic in the past, and we are hoping that the initiative is just as successful this year.

Knitted items such as this snood modeled by Taz help to keep dogs warm during winter, when they are most vulnerable ANL-150924-162251001
