This woman has decided to create a hospice for puppies abandoned either by old age or by a terminal illness and there she takes care of making them live the last days full of happiness.
Saying a final goodbye to our pets can undoubtedly be one of life’s most painful experiences, and one of the last ways to thank them for giving us so much love is to stay with them until ‘at the end. Unfortunately, many people end up abandoning them to their fate, no matter how many years have passed by their side.
That’s why this retired nurse decided to start a hospice for dogs where she makes sure they get the care they need in their final days.
Nicola Coyle created The Gray Muzzle Canine Hospice, where puppies abandoned because they are old or sick are housed. She runs this hospice from her own home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England.

Gray Muzzle Canine Hospice offers steaks and ice cream for pooches. Nicola even takes them to various places like McDonald’s, according to Bored Panda.
The former nurse said in an interview with Metro:
We only admit them if the vet says they are less than six months old, so we focus on end-of-life care. I think the longest I’ve had is about a year and the shortest is about two weeks.
Although she doesn’t know the exact birthday of the puppies she rescues, Nicola makes sure they each throw a birthday party, taking them to the beach or for some good food to celebrate.
The woman spends around £500 on each of the dogs she cares for.
She maintains this dog hospice with her own money and some donations from people who love animals.
Although Nicola only takes care of these animals for a few months, it is very intense for her to say goodbye to them.
No matter how difficult it may be to discover that we are about to lose them, that should not be a reason to abandon them to their fate, on the contrary, it should be a reason to accompany them with more love and more dedication.
