Sad update. I called MAS this a.m. and they confirmed that the puppy A243794 died in his cage. Yes, you really were looking at a puppy who died. And someone really did snap that photo and someone posted it on PetHarbor, which tells me they no longer “see” the animals, if they ever did. They didn’t know why the puppy died. The mama dog, A243793, is still at MAS on stray hold. Her release date is July 20. If she makes it out of MAS alive, this sad story will have a partly happy ending. And she’ll get spayed. The shelter didn’t know whether she came in with just one puppy or there were others. Either way, they’re gone now.
Please help her by contacting Memphis area rescues. Adoption is a long shot for any pit at MAS, so rescue is probably her best bet. Thanks.
They don’t know why the puppy died. They don’t know if there were other puppies or what happened to them. Whom should we ask? If MAS doesn’t know what’s going on under their own roof, who does know?
