The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to save companion animals in local shelters.
We are implementing innovative & progressive ways to help shelter pets in the Memphis & Mid-South area after studying the best practices of other cities. We are currently focused on helping the healthy and treatable pets who are at risk in a shelter, by rescuing the pets who are at the greatest risk of euthanasia and helping owners with alternatives to shelter surrenders.
This is a fantastic group that truly has the stray, lost and abandoned animal population of Memphis in their minds and hearts at all times.
They are positive, focused on forward movement and diligent in making every effort to save the animals at risk of euthanasia at Memphis Animal Services.
It's a hard road, animal welfare, but this group is strong and motivated. I am proud to be a part of their efforts.
Most importantly now they need support from the public and volunteers (and a winning lottery ticket wouldn't hurt.. or a donated farm...).
