A woman makes dogs’ best days as they deserve






In a world full of ‘people’, we have forgotten what humanity is. That's why it has become a trend to kick out the dying dogs or euthanize them as to get rid of the burden of the vet bills, food and all.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals reports in 2011, about 2.6 million dogs and cats were euthanized by animal shelters across the U.S.  Even though this number has decreased to 1.5 million, trust me, we can do better.

However, among these monsters-like-people, there are humans we can still rely on. 46 years old, Nicola Coyle decided to make the last days of the dogs their best days.

What she does is, she goes to the pounds, shelters, and charities and rescue the ill dogs, old dogs, and dogs who won’t live for more than 6 months.

She has made The Grey Muzzle Canine Hospice Project as an official one in the last year. To make this project successful, her two children Harry and Olivia 14 and 15, along with their friends, Emmans and Lisa support her as she takes two dogs at a time to give them the love they have never received before.

To make their last days special, she loves them unconditionally. Moreover, she throws each of them a birthday party even though she doesn’t know their real birthdays. she takes them to the seaside, gives them fish and chips, and ice cream as birthday treats. Also,  in general, she gives them doggy treats, ice cream muzzles, steak dinners, and pub outings.

Nicola says that this is a hard job for her, seeing the dogs she loves passing away at the end. But she makes sure that these dogs get the attention and love they deserve.

The dogs she takes under her wings have their own stories. One dog might be abandoned by the owner, while the other might be kicked out as no longer useful.

She spends around £500 for each dog. She earns money from sponsors , donations and also from her project. She uses this money to pay the vet bills, transport dogs from their shelters to her home, bucket list and also to throw parties, treats, and outings.

When a dog dies, she buries them in her garden or in her parents’ garden or she cremates them. And if the dogs live more than expected, she gladly looks after the dogs as they hold on.

One charity Nicola regularly helps said they are zillion times thankful for her for this humane project she has launched.

Joanne Snaith, from Helping Yorkshire Poundies, also praised Nicolas for her selflessness. She moreover admires The Grey Muzzle Project and the emotional burden Nicola has to carry as the dogs she has looked after pass away.

Nicola has sacrificed her happiness for the pursuit of the happiness of the dogs. It doesn’t matter how many dogs pass away when they are under the protection of her, she goes through the same pain again and again. Yet, she has the courage to save many dogs from their miserable endings and bring them happiness at least at the end of their lives.
