Woman Opens Dog Hospice Where She Spends The Last Days With Abandoned Dogs

Sad enough to sound, our dog friends were only temporary visitors of our lives – but we are usually their lives. And at least in the last moments of our pets, to be with them, to make sure that, when the time comes, they know they’re not just pets for us: to make sure they’re part of the family.

Unfortunately, saying goodbye to your dog can be a sad experience that not everyone can use. This is just one of the reasons why some elderly or deadly sick animals are abandoned. However, as a glimmer of hope, a woman is sure that all abandoned pets have spent the last few days to the end of their lives.

Nicola takes the dogs through McDonald’s drive-thru and even takes them to the local pub for a nice steak dinner.

Nicola normally has a maximum of two dogs at a time

“We’ll only take them in if the vet says they’ve got less than six months to live, so we’re focusing on end of life care,” said the former nurse in an interview with Metro. “I think the longest I’ve had one is around one year and the shortest was about two weeks.”

Even though she doesn’t know when the dogs’ birthdays are, she still throws one for every dog
