    Thank you all for the comments.. To settle some of the disagreements here, i work at the shelter, we do it cause we love animals, love to see them get a good home. Our shelter does have a yard sale every year, the employees and volunteers also put together a cook book. We have a contract with science diet and so that is the only food they feed there other then prescription food to some, or can food to ones to small for dry, or other issues... All the other food we donate to rangers pantry which then they distribute to people whom cant afford it... The blankets and towels come so often they donate some, but the tattered ones we cant use cause the dogs shread them the rest of way, then risk the chance of it blocking their intestines making it to where they have to have surgery to make it where they can go restroom. ( we had a 10 year old golden come in this way, that lived her remaining months in very loving home). So if it has holes they cant putwith animals.

    The lady whom donated the quilt, said it was old tattered and she found it in her grandmothers home after she had past away, she said she had no use for it because it is tattered and old and figured the dogs would get a couple uses out of it. Before judge me on taking away from animals, just know we work there because we love being involved wiyh animals, and we always are making stuff for them, braided fabric ropes, fleece, scrappy blankets tacked together, bandannas to make them stand out more for adopters.

    Heirlooms have no meaning to some anymore was the meaning of this post. Just because it is old and tattered,... We have numerous quilts donated and well used untilcan no longer hold together in wash. It was the way the lady told her story and protraid herself that was heartbreaking. I myself have lost a dog and we buried him in a quilt, that is not the issue to me it was the fact this was an heirloom and meant nothing to the lady, so we saved it from being destroyed by dogs like after about 3 uses of them getting thrown away.. This day and age is material things and it is sad, but never set in judgement of someone until knowing whole stories. I believe most every quilter if heard this lady would have done same thing in our shoes.. I told my husband the day this happened if he done that to mine id come back to haunt him lol. Sorry but if my grandmotjer or someone i knew put that much time into something i would cherish it always and pass down to my kids with the story behind it... Judge if you want but not before hearing or being there to see and hear.

    So glad you cleared that up Carla. I think itís great that your shelter gives the other brand of foods to the pantry. I always include a bag of dog, cat, and bird food when I donate to the local pantry. I hate the thought of someone having to give up their pet because they couldnít afford to feed it.

    I spent many hours cleaning out kennels at my local shelter. You couldnít pay me to do this job, but I volunteer to do it for free. I think you did the right thing. Oops, I guess I was judging. Keep up the good work.
