No reason. Just asking. JK. T-shirts coming soon!
Here's what dealing with #Memphis Animal Services is like. MAS tells one person that a puppy has til the end of the day to live. I emailed about the same puppy, and THE SAME DUDE told me the dog can't leave because he's a part of an investigation. I asked why he's giving us two different answers, and he told me to FOIA. Sigh.
I imagine he rolls his eyes and lights a new cigarette every time my name appears in his inbox. It's a losing battle to try to have him get off his bum and go check on an animal. Their computers are full of so many errors, but that's how he gets his information when we ask for it.
Contact me and let me know how many stickers you need, and where to send them. You can also pick up from East Memphis or Midtown.
I would like to issue a formal complaint about Mr. James Rogers. These frequent, deadly mistakes happen so often at Memphis Animal Services, and are regularly covered in the media.
The most recent involving the Rottweiler has been syndicated nationally, and reached millions of people. People associate the city of Memphis with death and wrongful killing enough. Memphis Animal Services is wasting taxpayer money by killing instead of adopting out, and worsening the city's reputation. We cannot move forward with Rogers in the driver's seat. He's incapable of running the facility, and needs to be terminated.
I feel Mr. Rogers has been insensitive and downright rude to me. I do not appreciate the way he addresses me, and am offended by "I expect no reply to the contents below" remark. This is bad customer service, which trickles down to his employees and staff members. Telling me to stop replying does not encourage open conversation or create an environment for suggestions, which he needs.
I've received the official set of records regarding this matter, which expose the truth. The dog was not euthanized due to aggression, as Rogers stated to the media. I'd appreciate an official statement regarding what disciplinary actions have been taken, and to which individual responsible for the tragic, accidental death of #A276371.
