Our Mission

The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County recently hosted the 2nd Annual 36-Hour Mega Adoptathon presented by Hollywood Feed. We offered greatly reduced adoption fees, stayed open for 36 straight hours, and invited local shelters and rescues to bring their adoptable animals to our grounds. As a result of the event, more than 160 animals from our facility and the other rescue groups and shelters found their forever homes!

About Us

Since 1933, the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County has been providing shelter, food and medical care for thousands of injured, neglected and abused animals. And for just as long, people like you have kept us going. Thousands of animals are neglected or abused in Memphis and Shelby County each year. Hungry, scared and injured, these animals face a bleak future. That's where we come in. We are the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County.
