12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Mandalay - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Mandalay

(WMC-TV) – Have you thought about opening up your heart and your home to a sweet animal in need this holiday season?

For the second year, Action News 5 is teaming up with the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County to bring you "The 12 Strays of Christmas."

During the 12 Strays of Christmas, you will meet 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22. And each pet featured in the "12 Strays of Christmas" comes with a very special adoption fee of just $12, which includes vaccination shots, spaying/neutering, and microchipping.

Meet Mandalay

Mandalay is a 10-month-old terrier/lab mix who has been with the Humane Society since late August. They transferred him to their facility from Memphis Animal Services because he had a severe burn injury on his back. The Humane Society thinks it is a chemical burn from motor oil; some people mistakenly believe that motor oil kills fleas.

Mandalay went on an outing with the group to a festival and did great with meeting lots of new people and socializing with other dogs. He is gentle, mild mannered and calm once he gets his energy out. If he's with a dog who's an attention hog, he'll let them take all the attention and wait patiently for his turn. This sweet boy would make an excellent addition to just about any family.

If you would like to visit Galinda, stop by the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County, located at 935 Farm Road.

The $12 adoption fee includes the following:

* Spay/neuter surgery

* Age appropriate vaccines

* Microchip for permanent identification
