About the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County
Thousands of animals are left abused and neglected locally each year. We couldn’t be more thankful to the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County for opening their doors in 1993, and for their continuous efforts to save these remarkable creatures.
Their staff works tirelessly to provide for these animals, and it’s all part of the Humane Society’s mission. This mission revolves around the fundamentals of saving the lives of animals that have been injured, abused, and neglected, enriching the human experience through animal companionship, and preventing animal cruelty.
These goals are met by providing the over 100 cats and dogs in their care with emotional support, socialization, nutritious food, veterinary care, and safe recovery spaces.
Donation & Volunteer Opportunities
The great work of the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County could not be brought to fruition without generous help from the local community.
One way to help is by joining the Friends of the Humane Society. This monthly gift-giving club is divided into four tiers, with each group providing life-saving resources. Donation options include payments to provide dog food, spay/neuter surgery for dogs to help end the cycle of homelessness, and intake vaccinations for rescued cats and dogs.
The Humane Society will also gladly accept the following pet supply items:
- Packages of dog treats
- Cardboard cat scratchers
- Dry kitten food
All items can be dropped off at the Humane Society during business hours.
