Retired Nurse Starts Hospice For Dogs Who Are Dumped At The End Of Their Lives

Nicola Coyle has always cared for dogs, but after retiring as a nurse, she was able to put all of her energy into providing for those abandoned in the last days of their lives. She started Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice in Mansfield, England, to shower these dogs with love.

Nicola can’t stand to think about dogs spending their end days in a shelter without the love they deserve, so she takes them in. Any dog deemed to have six months or less to live or any dog on the euthanasia list is a candidate.

She creates a bucket list for each dog that she welcomes into her home, and it always includes a steak dinner at the local pub and a trip to the seaside! Nicola now looks after two or three dogs at a time and arranges fosters for others. However much time these dogs have left, Nicola is willing to make the absolute most of it! 🙂
