On Friday, the Providence Animal Center took in an emaciated puppy who is believed to have been abandoned at a park in Pennsylvania. By the time that the pup was found, he was near death.

The shelter updated Facebook followers about the heartbreaking situation:

We’re currently caring for a near-death 2-3-month-old male puppy who was found wandering around Cobbs Creek Park. He is gravely sick, severely emaciated and too weak to walk. There’s no way he could have gotten there himself, so it is believed someone dumped him, as a sick puppy, and left him to die. We’ve named him Bennett, which means little blessed one – Benny for short.

Though Benny was immediately provided with round-the-clock supportive care, his little body was not up for a continued fight. On Sunday, Benny passed away.

On Sunday the Animal Center broke the news to those who were keeping tabs on Benny’s condition:

We have very sad news to share. Benny passed away this afternoon. His symptoms worsened and he died before we could provide him with an ultrasound to determine the root of the problem. He passed quickly, so he didn’t suffer. Our hearts are broken. We are comforted knowing we did everything we could for him; that his last days were possibly some of the best of his short life – surrounded by unconditional love as he is in this photo in his medical foster home; and of course, by your overwhelming support.
