MidSouth Animal Rescue League
We are a Memphis, Tennessee based rescue, but several years ago, moved 30 miles outside of town to a large piece of property as we grew and wanted to do more and help more animals. We are a foster based rescue, we do not have a physical shelter that is open to the public. Most of our foster homes are in the Memphis area, considered the greater Mid-South area, which can be confusing, but is a tri state area of Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas.
We are not a shelter - our animals are fostered in volunteer's homes throughout the Mid-South area. We are staffed completely with volunteers, and try to respond to everyone as quickly as we can, but due to the volume of calls and emails we receive, we are not able to get back with everyone. Please be patient with us!
Our mission is simple. As a network of individuals and rescue organizations, our goal is:
- To improve the plight of homeless animals dying in local shelters by providing rescue, shelter, medical care, adoption services, and foster homes.
- To assist other agencies in investigating incidents of animal cruelty, abandonment, and neglect. To reduce pet overpopulation by advocating spay/neuter programs.
- To reduce the number of homeless animals entering MidSouth shelters by promoting responsible pet ownership, permanent identification, and the humane and compassionate treatment of all animals.
