Dog #256667 was impounded by Memphis Animal Services after the owner surrendered him in the field on July 15, 2013. His one and only medical note is dated the following day, July 16, and indicates the dog was quiet and didn’t feel much like eating, which is understandable for any pet taken to a killing facility.
MAS housed the dog in the stray area so he was off limits to the public. No one walked him. No one even knew he was there except MAS employees. There are no notes indicating MAS reached out to fosters or rescues or issued any pleas to the public for this dog.
The next day, July 17, MAS killed him, noting that no one had requested a hold be placed on the dog that no one knew was there.
That’s one more dog who’ll never feel the sun on his face, never hear how special he is, never get to be the light of someone’s life. Because MAS.
How many more, Memphis?
