Many of you have asked how you can help the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County as we navigate the impact of COVID-19 on our shelter and community. As we work diligently to ensure the health and safety of our animals, staff, volunteers and supporters, we’ve made difficult decisions such as suspending our volunteer program and canceling or postponing critical fundraising events.
To offset decreases in funding during this challenging time, we invite supporters to help in different ways. Below is a list of opportunities to support the Humane Society under today’s circumstances. Thank you for helping us fund our critical work today and into the future. Our animals and staff appreciate you!
ADOPT: Because health is our top priority, we have suspended adoptions until further notice. Our Adoptions team will continue to keep information on adoptable animals updated on our website. In the meantime, prospective adopters can fill out our application here and email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOSTER: We need people to sign up to foster should we temporarily need to move all dogs and cats out of the shelter. Please contact Ashley Moore at email@example.com for more information.
DONATE: Your gift will help us continue our lifesaving work. You can donate much-needed funding here.
FOSTER SUPPLIES: As we move animals into foster homes, we need medium and large dog crates, particularly sizes 42”-48”, and Fromm Classic dog and cat food. Items can be dropped off at our intake door at 935 Farm Road. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FAST & FURREST VIRTUAL 5K AND WALK: We’ve extended our virtual 5K and walk! Register here and run or walk anytime from through March 28th! We will still have winners, prizes and the opportunity for our supporters to both fundraise and get out and exercise with their pets. Register today and run or walk with us in spirit!
AMAZON SMILE: AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
KROGER REWARDS: Kroger Community Rewards makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day. Once you link your card to an organization, all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card! A digital account is needed to participate in Kroger Community Rewards. SIGN UP
WOOFTRAX: WoofTrax is an app you can download onto your phone that donates to the animal charity of your choice when you walk your dog. The more you and your furry friend walk or run together, the more money your organization of choice receives. Download the WoofTrax app today, start tracking those long walks and support the Humane Society at the same time!
