A Georgia woman who read about a dog in need of hospice for his final days has created a bucket list for him to complete during his short time with her.
Nicole Elliot first heard about Chester when he was saved from death row by Animal Ark Rescue in April, MyFoxAtlanta.com reported. Chester, who has cancerous tumors throughout his body, has also tested positive for heartworm.
“He is still so sweet and as perky as he could be,” Elliot posted on the Facebook page called “Chester’s Final Journey.” He has more than 47,000 likes from supporters following his final days.
Since being placed with Elliot, Chester has gone on car rides, accompanied Elliot at work, enjoyed ice cream, gone on shopping sprees and was featured in his own photo shoot.
Elliot posted on the Facebook page that she is open to hearing any other ideas his followers may have.
“It will be so tough to lose him shortly, so I decided to take the time he has left (which is undetermined, but not guessed to be very long,) and make it as happy as I can,” Elliot said.
Elliot has been directing those interested in donating to the cause to contact the Animal Ark Rescue center to help other dogs like Chester.
“If you wish to help with Chester’s past, present and future, and other animals like him, this is how to do so! Your help with allow this rescue to continue to take in dogs just like Chester!” she posted.
