This Woman Quit Her Job To Knit Christmas Sweaters For Abandoned Greyhounds.
The beginning of winter means that we're all breaking out our coats, hats, mittens, and scarves from storage -- and one UK woman is making sure that the local abandoned dogs in her area have warm clothes, too.
Her name is Jan Brown, and she has spent more than 4,000 hours knitting Christmas sweaters and other cuddly garments for canines, hoping that her efforts will lead to no abandoned dogs freezing to death in the frigid months ahead. Each sweater takes about 20 hours to make, and Brown has been working on this project for the last five years. It's truly a labor of love, and by the looks of the animals below, you can tell they appreciate it.
Brown makes scarves, sweaters, and blankets for chilly dogs in need.
The outfits and accessories are adorable, but they also serve the important purpose of keeping these animals warm through the winter months.
Brown uses old blankets and other items to create the coats and sweaters.
“It’s really sweet seeing them in their festive Christmas jumpers, I think they look really sweet and it’s giving much needed help to the rescue centers. Greyhounds have very thin fur so they really feel the cold during the winter so my gifts help keep them warm during walks,” Brown said in an interview.
As the shelters usually have to allocate their funds for things like veterinary care and food, Brown's efforts are much-needed. In her way, Brown is playing a huge part in nursing these adorable dogs back to health -- and making sure they have a warm and cozy holiday season.
