“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” – Isaac Asimov
Puppy #269057 was impounded by the Memphis pound on July 18 as a stray. He was housed in the “healthy hold” area during the mandatory holding period and photographed by Memphis Pets Alive.
Animal lovers networking this pup on social media report that there was a waiting list of people wanting to adopt him. His “review date” at the pound was July 24. On that date, despite having been in the healthy hold area for several days, MAS decided this puppy was so sick with parvo he had to be immediately killed the moment his mandatory hold expired. No one on the waiting list was contacted.
Tragically, this pup wasn’t the first to be killed by MAS while adopters tried to save him and he won’t be the last. How many more, Memphis?
