Memphis, Tenn., June 26, 2017 Memphis Animal Services today announced that adoption fees will be reduced to the patriotic price of $17.76 from Sunday, June 25, until Monday, July 3, as part of a partnership with national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society.

MAS had planned to run the promotion as regularly scheduled from July 1-3, but decided to start it a week early. Due to the June daily intake numbers increasing up to 35 animals some days, the shelter is extremely full, and shelter staff hopes that this adoption special helps many pets find homes.

Summer is the time of year when we have the highest number of animals coming in, and we are certainly seeing those overwhelming numbers now, said Alexis Pugh, MAS administrator. We need the communitys help year-round, but especially in summer, to get as many pets adopted as possible! This reduced adoption fee offers a great opportunity to add a pet to your family!

Adoptions fees are usually $75 for dogs and $70 for cats. Cat adoptions are already reduced to $10 until the end of June, and they will still be reduced to $17.76 July 1-3.
