Memphis Animal Services Prepares for Move

Posted By on Tue, Nov 1, 2011 at 1:14 PM

Thursday is the last day to adopt a pet from Memphis Animal Services (MAS) in their current location at 3456 Tchulahoma. Adoptions will then be halted until the animals are moved into the new facility on Appling Cove on November 15th.

MAS will hold a Yappy Hour event on Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m., and all animals eligible for adoption will be $10. Friends of Memphis Animal Services are also seeking foster homes for adoptable animals to reduce the number of dogs and cats moved into the new facility. Anyone interested in fostering should call Tracy Dunlap, senior animal care technician for MAS, at 362-5310.

Any animals left in the stray area and adoption areas will be moved to the new facility unless the shelter's medical director determines an animal must be euthanized due to a medical condition.

After Thursday's Yappy Hour event, the shelter's schedule for the transition is as follows:

* On Friday, November 4th, and Saturday, November 5th, it will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. solely for owner reclamations and owner surrenders.

* The shelter will be closed to the public on Sunday, November 6th, and Monday, November 7th, as usual.

* Tuesday, November 8th, through Thursday, November 10th, the shelter’s volunteers will be handling owner reclamations only from 2 to 5 p.m.

* The Tchulahoma facility will be closed to the public beginning Friday, November 11th.
