Memphis Animal Services (MAS) held a "Yappy Hour" adoption event on Thursday night, at which some dogs were adopted out for a discounted price of $10. MAS usually charges $75 per dog.
The event drew record numbers, and 38 dogs were adopted. As a result, four dogs were pulled from the euthanasia list and moved into the adoption area. The dogs that were saved were on the list to be euthanized for space reasons. Such a move is very uncommon since MAS is typically always overcrowded, according to a city spokesperson.
