Show and Tail: Take Part in the Humane Society Adopt-a-Thon 

Tune in to the virtual event on Thursday.

It's a ruff life. According to the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County (HSMSC), owner surrender intake is up over 150 percent from last year. Stray animal intake is also up almost 40 percent. The Memphis Flyer and HSMSC are working doggedly to help these unfortunate creatures who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own.

It's not all bad mews. Cat adoptions are up 25 percent and 4,038 pounds of food have been donated to people who cannot afford food and to those who rescue.

"We're looking forward to our first-ever adopt-a-thon," says Ashley Haeger, controller at Contemporary Media and organizer of the event. "We hope participants will tune in to find their next fur-baby as we shine a light on the great work that Hollywood Feed and the Humane Society are doing."
