Popcorn Park Mourns Dolly's Passing

The last thing one ever expects after rescuing an animal is that she will pass away within months of her arrival. Brought home to Popcorn Park in a snowstorm in March of this year, Dolly, for the first time in her life, knew the warmth of a den and a comforting sun without pain.

Dolly enjoyed affection from Popcorn Park staff.

Dolly had been taken into the pet trade as a cub, lived with a woman for a year as a pet, was kept in basement-like conditions at a roadside zoo, and then finally found caring souls at the Howell Rehab Center in Maine. However, the extreme cold caused her to suffer with arthritis, and she finally came to Popcorn Park. In her short time with us, Dolly knew the constant warmth she needed, outstanding vet care, and love and attention from devoted staff. Unfortunately, on June 1st, Dolly suffered an incident of gastric dilitation volvulus, and despite immediate urgent veterinary care, she was not able to be saved. Dolly left us, finally having it all ... endless comfort, love, and at last ... peace. Dolly, we sure do miss you.

Read Dolly's complete story with photos - her history, her rescue from Maine, and her stay at Popcorn Park.
