About Purrs & Wags of Memphis

Purrs & Wags of Memphis is a no-kill "Special Needs" rescue. We take in and provide care to pets who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, sick or injured. When an animal comes to Purrs & Wag they have a home here forever if need be. Purrs & Wags will only euthanize when it is the most humane option for the animal (healthwise). We never have and never will euthanize for space. We treat their bodies and restore their health, earn their trust, and teach them what love is. When they are ready, we endeavor to find them the best possible homes for the rest of their lives. If it doesnt work out, we want them to come back to us. Never go to a stranger we do not know.

All our adoptable pets will be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, wormed, FIV.FeLv checked, HW checked, some but not all are microchipped. They all have spent time in foster homes, so we can tell you how they behave with children and other pets (even husbands)

Purrs & Wags are always looking for qualified foster homes for dogs & cats. To foster you must be willing to provide shelter, day to day care, and love to a rescued animal for an extended period of time. Some animals stay in foster care for years before being adopted. You must be able to take them to Vet appointments, adoption events, and meet & greets. If you are interested, contact us for more information.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our foster animals, which includes feeding, watering, bathing when needed, litterbox cleaning, not to mention grooming, loving, petting, and walking the animals. If you are interested in helping out with the day to day care of animals already in foster care, contact us for more information.
