Mercy was a 10 month old pit bull when she was viciously attacked, stabbed, doused with gasoline and lit on fire. Remarkably, she lived and was found by a passerby who took her to Operation Kindness, a no-kill shelter in Dallas.
Mercy's story made the international news because she was as gentle as could be to all that strived so hard to save her life.
Regrettably as her burns covered 60% of her body, her little heart finally gave out.
More than 1,500 people attended her memorial service and her final resting place is in the gardens at Operation Kindness.
Her attacker has been arrested and is in jail -- now you are being asked to take a few seconds and sign a petition to send a resounding message to the District Attorney that the harshest sentence possible is the only thing deserving of her attacker. While only 1,000 names were requested, there are now 17,775 signatures on the petition -- please add yours.
