Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County



Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate injured and abused companion animals in Memphis and Shelby County, fight animal cruelty and educate the public to become better pet owners. We do not euthanize due to time or lack of space. Because of our mission, we are only able to take cats and/or dogs that are injured or abused; we unfortunately cannot take stray animals.

If you would like to become a foster parent or have questions about joining an upcoming new volunteer orientation, please email:

I am trying to sign up for Adult Volunteer Orientation and Dog Walking Orientation but there are no further dates to sign up for orientations.

I am trying to sign up for 3-14-2020 Adult Volunteer Orientation and Level 1 dog walking class at noon. I am unsure if I have signed up. Thank you, Lisa

Me and Micki Beene took Dixon and Moonracer to Hollywood Feed. We were out about 3 hours. I did not find a place to record the outing.
You just record the outing as an impact on our main odyssey page. — Ashley Moore Ashley Moore on March 9, 2020
