This woman decided to create a hospice for dogs abandoned either by an old disease or because of their advanced age and she is responsible for making them live the last days full of happiness.
Saying goodbye to our pets can be without a doubt one of the most painful experiences in life, 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, regardless of the years that have passed by their side.
This is why this retired nurse decided to create a hospice for dogs where she ensures that they receive the necessary care in their last days.
Nicola Coyle created the Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project, where abandoned dogs are housed because they are old or sick. She runs this hospice from her own home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire (England).
The Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project offers steak and ice cream for dogs. Nicola even takes them to take advantage of 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 around a year and the shortest is around two weeks. ”
Although Nicola Coyle does not know exactly when the rescued dogs celebrate their birthday, Nicola makes sure that everyone organizes a birthday party and takes them to the beach or offers them good food to celebrate.
The woman spends around 600 $ for each dog she takes care of.
She keeps this hospice for dogs with her own money and some donations from people who love animals.
Although Nicola assists these animals for a few months, it is very intense for her to say goodbye.
No matter how hard it is to discover that we are about to lose them, this should not be a reason to leave them to their fate, on the contrary, it should be a reason to accompany them with more love and devotion.
