Grateful Hospital Client Sews Quilts for Pets

Daily Journal (Kankakee, Ill.; Dec. 22) – Linda Ahrens’s yellow tabby Spike was treated for cancer at the veterinary clinic at the University of Illinois in Champaign. After Spike received loving care, Ahrens knew she wanted to help the facility that helped her. She began sewing 24-inch square flannel quilts and selling them through U of Iā€™s clinic. The funds then went toward the humane supplement fund that assisted pet owners who might not be able to afford veterinary care.
