MEMPHIS, Tennessee – Memphis Animal Services says there is absolutely no room in their shelter and asks animal lovers to consider adopting or even fostering a pet for a few days.
“Admission continues to climb and adoptions are not keeping pace,” said MAS director Alexis Pugh. “We desperately need people to adopt or foster dogs or cats to help us maintain our non-euthanasia streak for space.”

In fact, the situation is so dire this week that MAS has issued a “code red” and extended its hours to remove the animals.
MAS has currently said that they do not have an open kennel for a single dog and are in desperate need of adopters or foster homes. Memphis Animals Services is looking for those who wish to welcome a dog until Wednesday of next week. MAS said it takes less than a week and will help save more animals.
MAS also needs foster homes or permanent homes for cats and kittens.
