Chester was diagnosed with serious cancer, and he doesn't have long to live.

When the people we love fall ill, we do everything in our power to make them comfortable, especially as they head into their final weeks and months. However, would we think to do the same for our animal friends?

One woman from Georgia, Nicole Elliot, decided to do just that. She recently adopted Chester, a cancer-ridden pooch, from Animal Ark Rescue in her home state. According to Elliot, when she saw that Chester required hospice care, she had no choice but to take him in and make his final days as joyful as possible. Looking at these photographs, it's clear that she succeeded.
