In honor of a dog who kept her owner happy right up until the end, the first animal hospice opened its doors to the public. Similar to humans, animals begin to lose many of their capacities as they become older, and loneliness may become a recurring theme in their latter years.
Alexis Fleming made the decision to start Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice, where puppies and other animals meet a dignified death, in order to escape that bitter pill merely in the twilight of life.
The hospice, which is in Sweden, first welcomed patients in 2016. Since that time, it has housed grandparents of various kinds, and Alexis is primarily responsible for all the affection that the animals there experience.
This woman had always wanted to do something to help animals, but it took the passing of her close friend Maggie to finally convince her to start the effort.
While Alexis was online browsing, the rescue puppy just so happened to enter her life. She discovered someone was seeking 100 euros for a brindle through an advertisement. The woman was subdued by the bullmastiff’s dejected eyes and lost expression.
While Maggie battled a serious illness, Alexis gave her a safe and caring home and the dog kept her company and encouraged her.
These circumstances allowed for the development of a rather strong connection between the two. Because of this, when Maggie was diagnosed with cancer, Alexis did not have the heart to abandon her, and when her furry companion passed away, the lady was heartbroken.
After that encounter, he was determined to complete a project he had been considering for a very long time.
Although it was a foolish concept given how ill I had been and how much Maggie’s death had hurt, the thought still persisted and would continue to torment me until I took action.
Despite Maggie’s illness, Alexis found her passing to be unexpected, and in Maggie’s honor she decided to start the first animal hospice ever.
This woman’s plan was to take in the animals whose former keepers had not been the finest, giving the animals a little calm in their surroundings.
