We are open Mondays through Fridays from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturdays from 9:30 am to 2 pm. We always need new volunteers to walk the dogs and play with the dogs and cats. A volunteer is required to go through a 20 minute volunteer orientation and sign the necessary paperwork. If under 16 years old, an adult must also be with the volunteer. Call 757-7358 to set up a time for an orientation. WE HAVE LOTS OF FUN!
Who We Are
We are an animal shelter which strives to adopt dogs and cats to good homes and to house dogs and cats that have strayed from their home until the owner picks them up. We are a KILL SHELTER but try to keep the animals until they are picked up by their owner or adopted, unless we get full or the animal is seriously injured, very sick, or aggressive.
Adopting a Friend
The adoption fee for dogs is $80. This includes vaccinations, heartworm testing, deworming, spay/neuter, microchipping and a rabies license for Shelby County. If a dog does have heartworms, the heartworm treatment will be paid by the city once the dog is adopted. The adoption fee for cats is $80. This includes vaccinations, feline AIDS and leukemia testing, deworming, spay/neuter, microchipping and a rabies license for Shelby County.
Come Visit Us!
We are located in Germantown, TN which is east of Memphis, TN. From Poplar Avenue, go South down Germantown Rd. Turn left at Southern Ave. which is just before the railroad tracks (Germantown Commissary Restaurant is on the other side of the railroad tracks). Proceed on Southern Ave. Go straight past the stop sign and the shelter is on the left in the back of the Public Services Complex.
Are You Interested in Fostering?
The shelter is now looking for individuals interested in fostering. As part of a new initiative to reduce euthanasia, foster homes would be used to prevent the shelter from becoming full. Please give us a call for more information.
