POPEYE, a pitty that we rescued & fostered from Shafter Animal Shelter in January suffered an accidental death. Popeye was a START dog that went to Snipped Rescue on a mini transport where they did an amazing job on his eye removal surgery. He was then adopted out to a loving home.

Sadly, POPEYE was riding in the car with his new mom and leaned on the window control, rolled down the window and jumped out the moving truck before she could grab him and was run over.

Our hearts are so heavy right now, our stomachs in knots, but what keeps us going is knowing that POPEYE has had the best few months of his life living with his adoptive family, playing in the water, walking with his horse and doggie siblings and being loved!

PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW…PUT THE CHILD LOCK ON, AS WELL AS, PUT THEIR DOGS IN A HARNESS AND BUCKLE THEM IN WHEN THEY ARE IN YOUR CAR SO THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN TO YOUR BABY!!!

Our hearts hurt tonight for his family, Snipped Rescue and Celeste & Ray.

RIP sweet POPEYE.
