City of Memphis Animal Shelter Hosts Spooktacular adoption event
On Saturday, October 30, Friends of the City of Memphis Animal Shelter, along with Public Services & Neighborhoods Director Janet Hooks and Shelter Administrator Matthew Pepper, hosted a Halloween Spooktacular adoption event. Several dogs, cats, puppies and kittens were featured at the event. Mayor Wharton was also on hand to greet employees and citizens. Persons visiting the shelter were treated to complimentary hot dogs and sodas. And a special adoption fee was offered to encourage as many adoptions as possible.
The event proved to be a huge success. Final numbers show that the shelter adopted out more animals at the event than the number brought to the shelter that day. For more information on how you can adopt a pet, please contact the Animal Shelter at 901-362-5210.
