Yesterday Mayor Wharton posted something on his FB page along the lines of “Yay local sports team” and I replied with a comment expressing concern about the pets at the shelter. He responded to my comment as follows:
Now I am not one to let false claims go by unchallenged (adoption rate is up 40% – whoa!) and so I posted a link to this post where I worked out the numbers showing that there is no such improvement at MAS. My link was promptly deleted. I have already written to the mayor previously including the same link and will again today be e-mailing it to him.
I’m not sure if the mayor’s plan to “address” the mistreatment and needless killing of pets at MAS is to censor his FB page in hopes that the truth will remain a dirty little secret in Memphis but if so, I have a question for you Mr. Mayor:
How’s that plan working out for ya so far?
Please join me in holding the mayor accountable for the killing in Memphis:
Email him as often as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
Call his office: (901) 576-6000
Send him snail mail: Office of the Mayor, 125 N. Main Street, Memphis, TN 38103
Fax him letters: (901) 576-6200
Post comments on his Facebook page.
If you are in Memphis, make a sign and picket in front of city hall. It doesn’t matter if there are 2 picketers or 200 – the idea is to let the mayor know that we are not going away. Have someone take a picture of you picketing and send it to me for the blog.
Change begins with one person. Be that person for the pets suffering at MAS.
