About ALIVE Rescue Memphis Chapter
About Our Rescue Group...
ALIVE Rescue Memphis is a branch of ALIVE Rescue, a very successful foster based rescue that has been going strong in Chicago for over 6 years.
Besides adopting out homeless animals, we also do reach out days at children's hospitals and senior living programs. Providing pet owners with all the tools they need is also very important to us. We plan to do community pet days, like our branch in Chicago, and supply vaccines and microchip to low income pet owners. Our desire is to keep pets in homes, and out of the shelters,
Our mission statement is ALIVE Rescue Memphis is an animal rescue that protects the lives and the rights of animals. We believe every animal has the right to a well-balanced, socialized and fulfilled life. We take on the responsibility to save, rehabilitate and place abandoned, abused and stray animals. We believe strongly in education, and providing pet owners with the tools they need to keep their animals happy and healthy pets. ALIVE Rescue Memphis promotes sustainable living & cruelty free living by building awareness, appreciation and respect for all animals and the environment within our communities.
Come Meet Our Pets...We do not have a kennel but we do have monthly adoption events at Whole Foods in Memphis. We are also more than happy to bring an animal to you, once the application is filled out and approved. We will also always do meet and greets with your current pets, to make sure the animal is a good fit. We are able to do this during the home visit, or at a nearby location. Whatever makes your current pets, most comfortable.
