When you find a pet, you should make every effort to find his or her owner. There are some great tips for finding a pet’s owner at LostFoundPets.us.
If your attempts to locate the owner have been unsuccessful, or you are not able to attempt to locate the owner, and you have ID proving residence in Shelby County (excluding Bartlett, Germantown, and Collierville), you may turn the pet in at MAS during the following hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 12 to 4 p.m.
Owner surrenders, which are by appointment only, are taken on Wednesdays and Fridays. These appointments take priority during these times.
Please note: Memphis Animal Services is not a no-kill shelter. Unfortunately, any pet that you turn in may be euthanized if we run out of space.
