Poppy Medical Memorial Fund
The Poppy Medical Memorial Fund was started in 2015 to honor a very special dog who came to Great Plains SPCA’s Veterinary Care Center after being hit by a train. Poppy’s injuries were severe, and it was only through the support of the community that she was able to receive lifesaving surgery and loving care.
Despite receiving the best care possible, Poppy’s injuries proved to be too extensive for her to recover and live a quality life. Our staff held her close in their arms as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge and never will we forget the imprint she left of our hearts. Her legacy lives on through the Poppy Medical Memorial Fund.
Donations to this fund will enable us to provide emergency medical treatment to future pets in crisis who need us… pets just like Poppy. Will you be a Hero?
