If you're like me and do not knit, no worries, just drop off old sweaters at your local shelter... these pups are worth it and the warmth they get wearing your 'gently used' golden oldies makes all the difference in the world. Win = Win !!!!!!!

Towels are a good thing to donate, too. Recently I took a bunch of bath towels I don't need to the local shelter. They were glad to receive them!
