A pet lover who couldn’t stand the thought of old dogs dying alone has turned her home into a hospice – and is now caring for 80 mongrels at the same time.

Valerie Reed, 44, founded the Whispering Willows, a nonprofit shelter for elderly dogs in Hermitage, Missouri, in 2017, after she struggled to find a home for her father’s aging Doberman. Report Dailymail.

She recalled: “My husband and I were at the limit of the possibilities for pets in our city and could not take her with us. We were looking everywhere for some kind of rescue that could help, but because of her age, no one wanted to take her in.

Now Valerie accepts dogs that have been in a shelter for a long time, whose owners have died or moved to an institution for a retirement facility.
