Featured Recipient - Meet Bailey
Bailey, found as a stray, was having trouble
walking. Thanks to Furry Friends Network
and Merrick Fund Foundation, Bailey received
the surgery he needed to help him heal.
Bailey is looking for a new forever family.
Who is Merrick?
Merrick, a yellow Labrador retriever abandoned without food or water didn’t know
much of human kindness. When Merrick was found in Lower Paxton Township in
June 2006, he had an open tumor on his side that was infested with bees. After
being held for 18 hours, he died the next day as he was being transported to a
veterinarian. Merrick’s story so moved two local women that they were inspired
to start The Merrick Fund Foundation so the suffering that Merrick endured
is not repeated.
