sent out to everyone.   why did they wait so long to put out this kill list?   We need at least a few days to find rescue, raise funds for vetting/transport/Foster etc.

MAS has nominated a long list of dogs for euthanasia if they do not have committed adopter or rescue by TOMORROW, Thursday, July 16 by 6:45 pm.  The list or a version of it was published last night with the new photos on Pets Alive.  I have copied it below.  Most of the ones on this list are lab mixes  from 3 months old to 1 year and cute as bugs.   I visited MAS on Saturday, and these dogs are all perfect pet potential.    Please rescuers, step up for these babies.  If out of town rescuers need an agent on the ground here, I will be glad to help physically and financially with pulling, arranging boarding and transport.  

I visited the two photographed above.  I believe they are brothers, not only because they look alike, but because they were taken in and processed at the same time.  They are small (top of heads at my knee), very gentle, cautious at first and then leaning in and giving baby kisses.  They have very slender and rather rectangular bodies— no curvy and muscular pitty parts.  

List:  Most of the dogs photos (3 or 4 each) can be found on the Memphis Pets Alive dogs album for 7/7/15 below.
