Save Memphis NJ is holding a Memphis Mile Dog Walk on Saturday, September 15th at 11 am for the pit bull that has been embroiled in a continuing debate over his future. Memphis has been deemed unadoptable by the town of Bloomfield, and is currently being held at the town’s John A. Bukowski Shelter for Animals.
Supporters of Memphis demonstrated in front of Bloomfield’s Town Hall prior to the council meeting on Monday, and spoke at length during the public comment period.
The walk will begin in front of Bloomfield Town Hall located at 1 Municipal Plaza in Bloomfield, NJ. Dogs that are leashed are invited to attend, along with their two-legged friends.
Renowned dog trainers Jeff and Diana Coltenback, who have asked to adopt Memphis, will be leading the Memphis Mile, according to the event organizers. After the walk, water will be served to participants in Watsessing Park, across the street from Town Hall.
Organizers say the event will take place rain or shine. They’re asking attendees to please bring signs showing support for Memphis. Derogatory signs are prohibited.
