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: We are offering adoptions by appointment. If you would like to adopt or meet one of our adoptable animals, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reach our adoptions team. Prospective adopters can fill out our application here.
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.
FOOD PANTRY: As part of the Shelby County Animal Welfare Coalition, we are partnering with Memphis Animal Services and other area shelters to launch a pet food pantry to assist pet parents residing in Shelby County who’ve lost income due to COVID-19 restrictions. Click here for details.
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.
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!
