The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby
County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal shelter
focusing on injured and abused animals.
The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County has worked in the Memphis community since 1933 to give injured and abused dogs and cats a second chance at life. We provide a safe place to recover, nutritious food and outstanding veterinary care for an average of 300 animals at a time. Our staff and volunteers provide training, affection and socialization to the animals in our care to help them be adopted successfully into new and loving homes. Our funding comes exclusively from private donations.
