Who doesn’t love  reading stories of an adopted pet’s happy beginning of their new life… especially with a dramatic “before” and “after” transformation like with Mercy! (Did you find your pet through Adopt-a-Pet.com or one of our Search Saver email alerts? Let us know! Send your adopted pet’s story and photos to info@

Last January you folks emailed me that there was one named Mecedes at the Tulsa, OK pound. When I saw her she looked so bad (to see her before picture below – click the “read more” link) I walked out. When I got out to my truck I thought, “If I don’t take her she’s dead in seven days.” I went back and adopted her. She’s only half Doberman, only 35 lbs. I think the other half is beaver as she has a penchant for my wood pile. After a few vet bills and some TLC she’s doing fine. (After photo, above). I shortened her name to Mercy because when I took her from the pound the lady there put her arms around me, she was crying and said, “God will have mercy on you for taking her.” I’ve heard adopted dogs appreciate you more. Mercy shows it every day. I encourage anyone looking for a pet to adopt. It’ll make you and the pet feel good.”
