The Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project

A woman in the UK is helping dogs spend their final days feeling as happy and loved as possible.

Nicola Coyle was a volunteer at a kennel when she started taking some of the dogs home, most of which were strays in order to save them from being put down. Today, she runs the Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project from her home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, where she provides end of the line care for both abandoned and terminally ill dogs which are given less than six months to live.

She was malnourished to the point where she couldn’t stand on her own feet and when she sat down, the short chain around her neck kept her from putting her head on the floor. Cala’s health grew increasingly worse and she even started having trouble breathing. If help didn’t come soon, Cala was going to die.
