Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salām wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,,

It is indeed commendable that you have taken it upon yourselves to look after other creations of Allāh.

While you all have been treating them to the best of your ability, it should be understood that health and sickness are in the control of Allāh, and likewise death.

If they die naturally without one being a cause of death to them, then there will be no sin incurred.
