Memphis Animal Services is taking part in a nationwide adoption event Tuesday, June 11.

Shelters across the U.S. are participating in Just One Day, which encourages shelters to pledge not to euthanize any adoptable animals on June 11.

According to the Just One Day website, more than 10,000 animals die each day in U.S. animal shelters.

Animals at Memphis Animal Services will have any necessary surgeries before Tuesday’s event so that they can go home with their new family when they are adopted.

The shelter, located at 2350 Appling City Cove, will open at 11 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. There will also be an off-site event at Poplar and Highland from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The adoption fee for dogs will be $35 and the adoption fee for cats will be $20 that day.
