Michele and Jeff Allen are a couple with hearts of gold. They spend their time doing something amazing for dogs who are nearing the end of their lives.
Their house, which is on six acres in Southampton, New Jersey, is home to about 27 dogs who need a place to live out their final days in peace.
At the Allens’ house, these dogs are allowed on all of the furniture, including their own toddler beds, and pretty much have no rules. They are cuddled by kind volunteers and get to play outside near a pond. They get home-cooked dog meals every day and have regular vet visits. It’s safe to say that these dogs are absolutely spoiled, and they deserve every second of it! Coming from shelters, these dogs have had rough pasts, but now they get to relax without a worry in the world.
They started a nonprofit called Monkey’s House, which is a hospice for elderly dogs. They pull sick animals from shelters and give them the love and care that they’d only dreamt of having in the last days. If it weren’t for the Allens, these dogs would die in the shelters without knowing what it’s like to be a real dog, living in a cozy home with loving humans.
