Memphis Mayor AC Wharton says that things at MAS are swell and he has every confidence in shelter leadership. I’m sorry Mr. Mayor, but I just can’t reconcile the daily images of needless killing at MAS with the words “every confidence”. But I still believe in Memphis. I believe in the kind-hearted people of the city who care about pets – the same ones you and your city leaders disparage at every turn. They are not the reason MAS has problems – they are the solution to those problems. Believe.
