Areas ALIVE Rescue Memphis Chapter Serves

ALIVE Rescue Memphis will adopt out dogs anywhere in the mid south, Grand Rapids, Nashville & Chicago. As long as it's the perfect home and the perfect fit for the animal in need of a forever family.

As our application states, applicants looking to adopt one of our dogs must be within 50 miles of Memphis.

Applicants looking to foster for ALIVE must be within 30 miles of Memphis.This is due to us needing to get the proper supplies to foster homes as well as getting the animals to vet appointments and adoption events.

We work mostly with high kill shelters in addition to pulling dogs from the streets of Memphis, where they then live in loving foster homes until they are adopted. The stray problem in the mid-south is a very big issue, and we do our best to save as many dogs as we can and place them in loving forever homes.

ALIVE Rescue Memphis Chapter's Adoption Process

• Applicants must be 21 years or older and must be able to provide proof of age.

• Applicants must be within 50 miles of Memphis.

2. Approve Application

• Applicants are required to provide personal and vet references. We will be calling these references before approving the application.

3. Interview

• Applicants will interview with the ALIVE Rescue President first. If approved, you will get to speak to the dogs foster family after.

5. Pay Fee

• Currently, the requested donation to adopt a dog from ALIVE Rescue Memphis is $275.00 for an adult and $300 for a puppy.

6. Sign Adoption Contract

• Once adoption is approved and fees are paid, applicants will sign our ALIVE Rescue adoption Contract to finalize the adoption.

You will be required to enroll and complete a training class with your new companion at one of our approved training facilities. Once ALIVE Rescue Memphis receives proof of the completed class, this $75 deposit will be refunded.

• Any current pets must be up to date on vaccinations, and be spayed/neutered. Exceptions to this will only be considered if proof of a medical explanation is provided.

• All members of the family living in the home where the animal will be placed must be interviewed.

About ALIVE Rescue Memphis Chapter

ALIVE Rescue Memphis is a branch of ALIVE Rescue, a very successful foster based rescue that has been going strong in Chicago for over 12 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 ALIVE Rescue Memphis Chapter's Pets

We are a foster based rescue and currently our dogs are hanging out on couches in Memphis, TN. We are also more than happy to bring an animal to you, once the application is filled out and approved and you are currently in Memphis. 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.
