Animal Shelter Closed Next Week

Posted By on Fri, Jan 8, 2010 at 11:38 AM

The city of Memphis announced today that the animal shelter on Tchulahoma Road will be closed for employee training Monday, January 11th through Thursday, January 14th.

Emergency related animal services, such as dispatch for vicious dogs, will still be available.

The shelter has had its problems in recent months, starting with an investigation that found animals starving to death. Even after the shelter director was removed, however, we got word that problems were still ongoing. That account, about a dog that was set to be adopted but was ultimately euthanized, definitely seemed to suggest that more employee training was necessary.

The city also says that Memphis mayor A C Wharton is in the final stages of confirming an administrator to run the shelter.
