Merci, pronounced "Mercy," was rescued exactly one week before Thanksgiving. This beautiful girl was most likely on her way to one of the live kill markets in NYC bound to become someones Thanksgiving dinner. We will never know how she escaped but this resourceful girl found her way to Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn and was discovered shivering in the cold rain by the road. A group of kind animal lovers made it their mission to make sure Merci found her way to sanctuary. We are so thankful that Merci will never know abuse or neglect again.
