I recently visited the memphis animal shelter looking to adopt a dog for my daughter. My husband and I found a little puppy that we were interseted in adopting. We proceeded to speak to someone about adopting this puppy and were told that if we wanted this animal that we would have to come back and stand in line because several people wanted this dog. I then asked this person why we would have to do this that from past experiences I thought it was first come first serve. She proceeded to tell me that there was a waiting list on certain dogs and told me to leave unless there was a different dog I was intrested in. I then said to her I don't understand why any other dog would be any different in adopting then the one we wanted. We were never given a reason or explantion of why this was going on. My family and I returned the next day later in the day and noticed that the puppy that there was supposedly a waiting list for was still there. I still to this day can not understand why they did not want to adopt this dog out to us. We have adopted from this shelter before and never had problems like this before.
