Help! ‘Space crisis’ plea for dog kennels at Memphis Animal Services

In Memphis, Tennessee, the local animal shelter has become overcrowded. Sadly, there are more dogs than  Memphis Animal Services can house in their temporary shelter cages. Help is needed now.

According to Fox News, the shelter is sending out an all-call to help with the overcrowding problem. Alexis Pugh, the director of Memphis Animal Services, stated the dog side of the shelter has been reaching critical levels. There are currently more than 200 dogs in the building.

And why so many dogs at the shelter now? The shelter has had a recent influx of 61 puppies – all under 12-weeks-old as well as half the staff as before caring for them because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It has been a year since the shelter has had to euthanize any animal because of space issues, and they surely don’t want to go that route ever again.

Even if someone in the area isn’t able to adopt, how about consider fostering a dog?

“If you could give us one week of a dog in your home, you would be saving lives,” Pugh said.

Please share this important message with family, friends and social media contacts. Check out the shelter’s Facebook page and see the adorable, friendly and loving pups just waiting for the right family to come along and adopt them.

Care to help? Contact the shelter at 901.636.7297 or email mas@memphistn.gov.
