Animal Abuse - Mercy The 10-month-old Puppy

Mercy

Mercy, the 10-month-old puppy who was doused with gasoline and set on fire, has died. Her little heart just gave out.

She was a gentle soul who showed remarkable strength and courage - she inspired us all! Mercy died Sunday evening about 9:30 p.m. at the veterinary clinic where she was being treated. Doctors said Mercy showed some improvement Saturday, but her condition started to deteriorate Sunday afternoon. She was given a plasma transfusion, but shortly afterward her heart--weakened by burns over 60% over her body--stopped beating.

The young pit-bull mix was rescued Friday, April 14, by a Dallas man who saw her in the wooded area behind apartments in Far North Dallas. He took the dog to Operation Kindness, where she was given immediate veterinary care. Mercy was transferred to the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center last Monday.


She had surgery the following day to remove most of her burned ears and begin the painful debridement treatment. Doctors cautioned that, because of the severity and extent of her injuries--which also included stab wounds and cuts--her prognosis was guarded.

"All of us at Operation Kindness, as well as thousands of people who have been moved by her plight, are grieving for Mercy," said Jonnie England, executive director at Operation Kindness. "We were so hopeful that this beautiful, gentle dog, who had suffered and endured unbearable pain, would pull through in the end. It's more important than ever that the person who brutalized her be caught and brought to justice--for Mercy's sake." She will be privately cremated and her askes will be spread in Operation Kindness' Memorial Garden so she will rest in peace forever.

Thanks to the outpouring of support for Mercy, her veterinary bills have been covered by caring people who were touched by her plight. Donations made For Mercy's Sake will be used to help Operation Kindness care for other unwanted, abused and neglected animals like Mercy.

I just don't get it why do you want to abuse animals? What's the rationale behind it? Stupid.
