No need for warm there!  But soft is nice, still.  When I was deciding which blankets would be which size I would think of those bony dog elbows and how it seems like the bigger the dog, the thicker the the pad.

Oh I hear you there!  My sister used to have a great dane, and she had horrible calluses on her elbows and knees.  I always wanted to make her a big cushy bed, but she lived outside, and it would have gotten nasty real quick.

I just started working on a couple of quilts for Quiltsforkids.org.  I don't really have any extra fabric that would work for this, but whenever I Spring CLean, I donate everyting I get rid of to a thrift store that supports a shelter.

big dogs over here sleep on those metal framed dog beds which have like a heshion top to keep them off the ground though in  winter the cold breeze under is just as bad for the old arthritic dogs here.

That is a wonderful idea! I don't live in USA but we do have one shelter here as well so I'll keep the idea for the next time my brother goes to walk the dogs there (in our shelter people can come and just take a dog for a walk if they can't take him home).

Another great cause!

Ahhhhh.  I haven't thought about the air space under there diminishing heat, but it must.

I'm sure animals in shelters all over the world could use a little comfort.  Even if the shelter provides a blanket, it probably would help them to be able to be able to have their money go further.  I LOVE that people can take the dogs for a walk even if they can't take one home!

I agree on both. We plan to go there and walk the dogs as well as soon as they are healthy (they've been sick in turns all winter - since the kindergarden...) and I also plan to include my girls to help me make some stuff for the dogs in the shelter when they grow older. They have nice rules there: you can come and feed, comb, play with and walk the dogs you like and many people come on daily/weekly basis. I think this helps the dogs keep socialized and entertained and that way they are more likely to get adopted... I'm just working on a blaket with aplike of the dog (from ottobre site - I made my girl a bag and made 2 aplikes so I have one left). Thanks for the idea!

Wow! I'm just so happy that so many craftsters have decided to help out their local shelter or are already helping and half verified that this is a needed and appreciated way to contribute.

I honestly never thought of making blankets for animal shelters.  That is ingenious.  I think I have some scrap material around that I can use.  Thanks for the idea!

I love this cause.  A local animal shelter accepts Snuggles; I've been working on a few sewn ones right now.

Has anyone knitted/crocheted these mats?  I was at the Goodwill the other day and came across a whole shelf full of yarn on sale...as in 29 cents a skein.  I crochet better than I sew but I'm not sure how well yarn will hold up.  Perhaps rug yarn or fabric strips?
