(MEMPHIS ANIMAL SERVICES NEWS RELEASE) – Memphis Animal Services announced they will offer $10 pet adoptions to citizens who prove that they voted in the City of Memphis Municipal Election with their “I Voted” sticker. The adoption special will start on Election Day, October 3, and run through Sunday, Oct. 6.
“Regardless of your political beliefs, I think we can all agree that homeless pets deserve loving families,” said Alexis Pugh, MAS director. “A citizen who cares about their city enough to vote is exactly the kind of person we want to adopt our dogs and cats.”
Every adoption at Memphis Animal Services includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccines, heartworm test (and treatment if needed) for dogs, FeLV test for cats, collar and/or leash, and customized ID tag. Adoptions fees are usually $80 for small dogs and puppies and kittens under 5 months and $40 for large adult dogs and adult cats.
Memphis Animal Services, located at 2350 Appling City Cove, is open for adoptions daily from 12-4 p.m. plus until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Dogs at the shelter are also listed on MAS’s website, www.memphisanimalservices.com.
Memphis Animal Services is the only open-intake animal shelter in the city of Memphis. MAS works to help keep people and pets safe by enforcing animal care and control laws, caring for homeless pets, and achieving positive outcomes for the pets in their care. Having saved 88 percent of the nearly 9,000 pets in its care in 2018, MAS envisions a day when no healthy, adoptable pet dies in Memphis due to lack of space, every owned pet is well loved and cared for, and no citizen’s safety is put at risk by irresponsible pet ownership.
