Red American Pit Bull Terrier at Memphis Animal Services needs to be rescued as soon as possible. He’s approximately 1 year old. He just got there on March 20 but in typical MAS fashion, he has been given a “Due Out Date” of Tues. March 26, less than a week. Any dog that is past the “Due Out Date” is killed at this high kill facility.

An animal rescuer met “Red” on Sat. March 23 while she spent an hour and a half waiting for MAS to bring out another dog that she was pulling, (not “Red”). They actually brought her the wrong dog and tried to hand over “Red” to her. Apparently, they even gave “Red” a rabies shot and had him microchipped, which was what the OTHER dog was supposed to have. More of those “clerical errors” that continue to happen at Memphis Animal Services.

As they brought “Red” out with a leash fastened around his neck tight like a noose, he cowered and shook with utter fear and urinated on the floor when the staff member holding the leash went to touch him. He seemed absolutely petrified of this place and these people. As my friend knelt down with him on the floor of the lobby, she promised “Red” that his final days were not going to be at MAS. An overwhelming feeling of guilt and panic ran through her as she knew she could not live up to her promise that day because she was pulling another dog, but she was going to do all she could to try to save him.
