Old Dog Haven
I recently made some doggy cushions to be donated to Old Dog Haven. I personally believe that especially in a tough economy we should all do what we can to support whatever charity is near and dear to our hearts. My dogs are very fortunate - they will never be thrown away. They will never be left behind because we are moving an can't afford to take them. They will never know hunger. Unfortunately - not all dogs are as lucky as most of the Dogs on Thursday bunch. I would ask my bloggy friends to step out of their comfort zone and do something kind for an unknown dog. Donate something from Old Dog Haven's Wish List; make washable fleece dog cushions - you can either send these to me or donate them to your local rescue. Donate to the ASPCA - a link can be found on Nicole's blog. In the past I have made squares for the comfort quilts for several different blogs, two don't exist anymore. I knit for Virgina Tech after their horrible tragedy. I knit for Luke. I have knit chemo caps for complete strangers. Now, I'm asking you to do the same - to donate to dogs by making a washable fleece cushion to help make the lives of the dogs in final refuge a little bit better. I promise it will make you feel better.
