MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A protest is planned for Sunday due to concerns about new policy enforcement at Memphis Animal Services.
The protest is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Union and Cooper.
Local animal lovers have launched a national petition to change the policies at the Memphis Animal Shelter.
Memphis Pets Alive has recently be banned from taking pictures of animals in the area where animals are held for 72 hours.
Technically those animals are not city property and not listed for adoption.
Memphis Pets Alive used to shoot pictures there every week to help promote adopting the animals via Facebook, and reunite lost pets with owners.
Memphis Pets Alive volunteers, however, say the policy has only recently been enforced.
Currently, MAS does not post photos of stray animals online, you must go by in person to the shelter to see animals who have been brought in.
