Since 1933, the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County has been providing shelter, food and medical care for thousands of injured, neglected and abused animals. And for just as long, people like you have kept us going. Thousands of animals are neglected or abused in Memphis and Shelby County each year. Hungry, scared and injured, these animals face a bleak future. That’s where we come in. We are the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County.
With support from our generous donors, we are able to help prevent and stop animal abuse as well as help injured animals in the Memphis community. We provide animals with a safe place to recover, nutritious food and outstanding veterinary care. We provide sanctuary to hundreds of animals a year with dozens more placed with foster families until they are ready to be adopted, and we are dedicated to giving these animals a second chance at life.
