Columbus, Ga. — We first brought you Chester’s story two weeks ago when we reported that Nicole Elliott, a mother from Columbus, had rescued the terminally ill dog from a shelter and had created a bucket list of things for him to experience and enjoy during his final days.
Now, Elliott is using his legacy to help raise donations to benefit other senior animals that have been surrendered by their owners to shelters or abandoned on the streets.
“I am so sad to tell everyone that my sweet baby Chester has left this world. I am heartbroken, but at the same time, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.”
Right before his death, Elliott prepared an amazing list of activities and experiences for Chester to enjoy. He went on car rides, shopping sprees, oatmeal milk baths, playtime in the water and more. Despite being sick, this dog was still sweet and perky.
While Elliott will be focusing on other animals looking to be rescued now, she says Chester will hold a special place in her heart for changing the way many see older animals.
