Radio Show: Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County

The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County has worked in the Memphis community since 1933 to give injured and abused dogs and cats a second chance at life. We provide a safe place to recover, nutritious food and outstanding veterinary care for an average of 100+ animals at a time. Our staff and volunteers provide training, affection and socialization to the animals in our care to help them be adopted successfully into new and loving homes. Our funding comes exclusively from private donations.

HSMSC’s community outreach and humane education manager Matt Womack dedicates much of his time to reaching out to the community to educate about preventing and reporting animal cruelty, proper animal care and how to help homeless animals. This includes visits to local schools, appearances in the media, and hosting a summer camp for 7- to 12-year olds each year, to name a few of our outreach efforts.

To offer refuge, medical care, nourishment and an opportunity for a second chance at life to injured and abused animals;
To protect animals from cruelty, neglect, carelessness and ignorance;
To foster public sentiment of humanity and gentleness toward animals and promote responsible pet ownership through humane education; and,
To enhance the quality of human life through animal companionship.
