THE ANIMAL SAVIOR

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal,
Sadness and betrayal, and I was angry.
GOD, I said, this is terrible! Why don't you do something?
GOD was silent for a moment, and then he replied softly,
I have done something, he replied.
I CREATED YOU!

The Humane Society of Eastern Arkansas is proud to be the sponsor for the low cost mobile surgical hospital, Arkansans for Animals, Inc. The City of West Memphis and West Memphis Animal Shelter hosts the event at the animal shelter.

West Memphis, Arkansas is the only town in Crittenden County to provide this service to the county citizens that might otherwise not receive any veterinary services for their pets. We have been providing this service several times a year for the past 15 years. Due to this program, we have spayed and neutered thousands of animals that would have been allowed to reproduce and cause overpopulation of animals to enter into an already full shelter. Please call the West Memphis Animal Shelter at (870) 732-7599 if you would like more information about this service provided for the public and a substantial savings for sterilization. If you missed our clinic, MARS (My Animals Rejoice Sterilized, in Marion, AR) may have an upcoming clinic that you could get your pet into. MARS number is 501-266-8243.
