MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Animal Services now says it won’t change its hours on August 1.
A notice on the city’s animal services webpage says, “The hours of operation at Memphis Animal Services will not change on August 1, 2014. Stay tuned for additional updates.”
The proposed hours were 12 to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, which would be nine fewer hours a week than now.
Earlier this month, MAS administration was reviewing the proposal, which the advisory board had already voted against it. Public sentiment also appeared to lean toward not shortening the hours.
The current hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The shelter is closed Sunday and Monday.
