Man Placed In Hospice Hoping to Find Homes for 11 Rescued Dogs

Texas man adopted dogs before he was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

A man in Texas who was recently placed in hospice care has one final wish. He wants to find a home for 11 rescue dogs he has adopted.

San Antonio television station KSAT reports 71-year-old Richard Ewers adopted the dogs over the course of several years. But sadly, he has been diagnosed with stomach cancer and reportedly has about a week left to live.

But Ewer's friends and neighbors, who at times have chipped in to help get his dogs spayed and neutered and help repair his fence, are working hard to make sure his final wish comes true. They've set up a Facebook page called "Helping Mr. Richard and His Dogs."

According to a post on the page, there are still five dogs who are looking for new homes. The post says Ewers is stubbornly fighting against cancer and is determined not to go until he knows all of his dogs have good homes.
