Some of you will remember this dog from the post last Friday. I wanted to find out more about the dog and keep tabs on him so I’ve been contacting the shelter. As it turns out, this dog came in with a look-a-like buddy and they have been kenneled together for the last week. I have just been advised today that one of the dogs will be moved to the adoption floor. The other dog is going to be killed if not pulled by 5pm today because he’s been chewing his tail. I have very limited information, and I know what a longshot it is in trying to find help for him at the last minute but, I want to at least try. Since he is not listed online, nor has he been available for the public to see when looking to adopt a dog, as far as I know, this post is his only hope.
I do not know if the dog in the photo above is the dog in need or if it’s the buddy dog. Apparently they look alike, possibly related. I have asked for a photo of the dog in need and if I receive one, I will update this post. This is all the info I have:
ID #226249 -Male, approximately 8 months old, kennel #558
Memphis Animal Services
3456 Tchulahoma Road
Memphis, TN 38118
Phone: (901) 362-5310
TTY: (901) 576-6501
Closed Sundays and Mondays.
This shelter’s 2010 kill rate was 77%.
Update: A mess of crazy ladies whom I don’t know stepped up with offers to help this dog and donations of cash for expenses. Thank you irresponsible public, from the bottom of my bleeding heart. If all goes according to hastily-thrown-together-e-mail-plan, the dog will be bailed out of MAS Saturday morning and taken to a local vet for board and treat. From there, transportation will be arranged to NY. I’ll keep everyone posted as things develop. Again, thanks to everyone. I am so happy to know that being carried to his kennel instead of dragged was not the last kindness this dog will ever have known in his life.
