A reader sent me this photo of the kennel deck inside the dog cages at the new Memphis Animal Services facility. It appears that the coating on it is already peeling away. I hope the coating is not toxic to the dogs if ingested.
It’s nice that dogs have a raised platform in their cages but where are the soft beds/blankets for the dogs to lie on? Are these kennel decks the only “beds” the dogs have at MAS? Because these are not beds.
I wonder what happened to all the Kuranda beds they had at the old building. Even though the staff ruined the hammocks by cutting them, the frames could be reused and are valuable. With new hammocks, they could provide comfort to the dogs at the new building. I hope they didn’t junk them. Even if they refuse to give the dogs the Kuranda beds now that the webcams are turned off, the very least they could do is donate the frames to other area shelters/rescues to help other dogs. Anyone know what happened to the Kuranda beds?
