Two years after a public outcry and raid on Memphis's Animal Services, they are set to open a brand new facility. The old facility had cameras which the public could view. The new facility also has camera, but these are linked to the police department so if a problem is noticed, it can be taken care of immediately.
The new state-of the art facility costs $7.2 million and at 35,000 square feet is three times larger than the old one. A nationwide hunt will begin today for a new shelter director, for those who may be inclined to move.
Check out the story and slideshow. Let's hope that the rumors of illegal activities and neglect will not continue. I am sure the animal lovers in Memphis will be watching closely.
