Alexis Flemming has dedicated herself to giving terminally ill animals the best last days of their lives – despite recently almost dying herself.
The animal lover, who lives with autoimmune diseases, was recently given only a few days to live before an operation helped control her condition.
Now recovering, she is back giving care to the variety of animals she has taken in at her animal hospice and sanctuary in Scotland.
She was inspired to set up the Maggie Flemming Animal Hospice – just outside Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway – in 2016 after her beloved bullmastiff Maggie died suddenly at the vets.
