Meet Valerie Reid, the amazing woman who converted her home into a hospice because she couldn’t take the thought of any elderly pets dying alone
Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary, a pet rescue organization in Missouri run by Valerie Reid, is making a difference in the lives of senior dogs that have either been abandoned or have lost their owners.
Since Whispering Willows is a lifetime hospice sanctuary, it accepts and cares for dogs who are nearing the end of their lives. The dogs that arrive at Whispering Willows are never fostered or adopted, and they are never kenneled or imprisoned like they are at other pet sanctuaries. Instead, they move in with Reid and her family and remain there until they pass away.
Reid tells Daily Paws that “they just get to be here and get to be home.”
