When Poptart and her furry dog buddy were taken to McDonald’s, we can only imagine they thought they were in for a treat…
But when they were left for dead behind the fast-food chain in Sacramento, California, the poor puppies were probably terrified.
Due to the freezing-cold temperatures and Poptart’s severe mange skin condition, she almost didn’t make it. But the three and a half pound cutie was a fighter. Sadly, though, her friend didn’t pull through.
Thankfully, the sweet girl’s luck changed when she was rescued and brought to the Sacramento SPCA where the rescue team worked tirelessly to get the little lady healthy once more.
Everyone at the shelter fell in love with Poptart’s tenacity, and she had so many fun times during her stay with them.
Sadly, though, after a long struggle to survive, Poptart passed away in her sleep.
The shelter shared this update:
“She had a great week last week: playing, wagging her tail and back to her happy self. Unfortunately, it seems like her little body couldn’t quite keep up with her great spirit. She had many friends through her journey (her Doberman big brother, her BFF Nellie, and all of you) and we’re sure she’s bounding around on the other side with perfect knees, booping all the boops and enjoying the sunshine.”
This just breaks my heart! Shame on the person who left this gentle creature to die behind a McDonald’s. She didn’t deserve that fate.
If you’d like to help the SPCA that gave Poptart the happiest days in her final few weeks, you can do so here. Even though they couldn’t save this sweet girl, they’ll continue to do everything they can for other pups just like her.
