Poor, poor Merrick

I would like to thank all those involved who desperately tried to save this young fellow. His last bit of strength appears to have been used to escape from the inhumane conditions of that apartment. Why does this appear to be an everyday occurrence, with programs like PAWS, the Humane Society etc., that offer discounts to have spay, neutering and offers to euthanize? Maybe we should have credit checks, background checks and referrals to all those who think they would make a great pet owner....
