Recently someone shared the picture of a cat who was available for adoption at the Memphis Animal Shelter onto my facebook page.
I could not get this little cat out of my mind and I just knew that someone would adopt her.
But no one did.
I checked back on the Friends of the Memphis Animal Shelter facebook page and found that she had been at the shelter longer than any other cat and she needed a home immediately.
I understood what that meant.
And I knew that I had to go bail this little cat out of the pound.
But I was scared.
I have been a lot of places and seen a lot of things in my life, but the thought of going into the Memphis pound filled me with absolute gut churning fear.
I got my sister and made her come with me.
She was scared too.
But we went.
Here is the thing, I had been several times to the old pound facility and the place was horrific.
But the new facility is bright, cheerful and airy.
There are volunteers who are helpful and want to help these animals get adopted.
If you are thinking of getting a pet, give the Memphis shelter pets a chance.
Go to the MAS and look please.
You may be the one that some little one is waiting for.
And it feels good to save a life...it really truly does.
If you have a bit room in your heart or your home to squeeze a little lost soul into, then go and do it today.
Oh, and today they are running a special Yappy Hour!
From 4-7 pets are available for a reduced adoption fee.
Every Thursday they have the Yappy Hour Special.
And they have other specials sometimes too.
I got my little pound kitty.
She is sleek,friendly and healthy.
I had to squeeze her in here, but she fit.
I met some other kitties while I was there who were lovely, friendly and want a home so badly.
Go meet Curley, an adorable little red fellow.
And Velvet who has an incredibly soft fur.
And the truly beautiful red point with the vibrant blue eyes.
I cannot believe that these babies have been overlooked and time is not on their side at this point.
I am praying that someone can take them before the weekend.
If you have thought about adopting a pet, but you are afraid of the Memphis shelter, go and see.
It is okay.
If you know someone who is thinking of adopting a pet, please suggest the Memphis shelter.
Offer to go with them.
Save a life and find a friend.
