Community Engagement and Events

The Humane Society is dedicated to educating the community about preventing and reporting animal cruelty, proper animal care, and how to help homeless animals. This includes visits to local schools, appearances in the media, and hosting a summer camp for children each year, to name a few of our outreach efforts.

We always welcome schools or organizations to engage their students in service learning so that they can engage in real-world problem-solving while working toward a common goal. Animals at the shelter and in the community benefit from your students’ creativity, passion, and energy.

If you’d like to suggest a school or organization have a humane education class or workshop, please contact the Volunteer Manager at or 901-937-3905.

Some projects we suggest are:

Host a coin drive or pet supply drive

Help us provide critical care where it is needed with your donations.

Craft together

Make cozy blankets for animals at the shelter and in foster homes.

Make a video or story

Teach other kids about kindness and responsible pet care creatively and spread the word and be part of our mission.


Donating to the Humane Society is a meaningful way to make a positive impact on the lives of countless animals. Your generous contributions provide vital support for our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and find loving homes for abandoned and neglected animals. Adopt a pet and change a life.
