MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Animal Shelter reduced its adoption fees to $50 after receiving 17 dogs following a Memphis Police Department criminal investigation.

MPD officers took seven dogs and several cars away as part of an ongoing criminal investigation at a property on Krayer Street on Thursday. It is unclear at this time whether the additional 10 dogs came from the same investigation.

MAS found itself at capacity and dropped the adoption fee from $75 to $50 in an attempt to encourage adoptions of other dogs. Adoptions of other dogs will help make room in order to avoid a significant hardship on the animals.
