At World Of Wool we have recently been giving our help and support to animal charities Epsom Canine Rescue and Furry Friends Animal Rescue.
Epsom Canine Rescue was formed in 1995 and they specialise in neglected dogs in the Epsom area, their main aim is to rescue and rehome unwanted as well as stray canines. All activities carried out by Epsom Canine Rescue are on a voluntary basis.
Furry Friends Animal Rescue is a home run rescue in Old Coulsdon, Surrey. They cater for dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, terrapins and smaller caged animals. Originally just a small animal rescue it now caters for lots of animal species.
One of World Of Wool's customers Janine Nunney has been making some amazing felted dog portraits for Epsom Canine Rescue, and every penny raised through selling them has been donated to them.
We were so impressed with Janine and her charitable crafting that we were happy to support her with some extra goodies in her parcel.
This is what Janine had to say:
"Today I received my lovely order from you (World of Wool) and with it a big dollop of kindness :D
With my order I was hopeful and added that:- 'I have been making felted dog portraits for Epsom Canine Rescue with every penny going to help Rescue Dogs - and it is very popular and raising lots of donations. If you have any additional doggy colours or can send me a discount it would be very gratefully received and I will thank WOW on our Facebook page :D'
Would you please pass on a very grateful Thank You for the bag of 'Extra doggy colours - with compliments' that Nic packed :D and what a fabulous selection you have included. In particular the perfect colour for my next feltie which I am doing 'with compliments' for a fellow volunteer who runs an incredible rescue called Furry Friends where they save dogs but also loads of small furries that have nowhere else to go."
