Dog's tragic life inspires creation of charity
December 9, 2007
Merrick, a yellow Labrador retriever abandoned without food or water in an East Pennsboro Twp. apartment, didn't know much of human kindness, but his story has inspired a fund to help other homeless animals.
When Merrick was found in June 2006, he had an open tumor on his side that was infested with bees.
He died the next day as he was being transported to a veterinarian at the East Shore shelter of the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area Inc.
