Business Description
Thousands of animals are neglected or abused in Memphis and Shelby County each year. Hungry, scared and often sick or injured, these animals face a bleak future. Thats where we come in. We are the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County, and we are dedicated to giving these animals a brighter future. With support from animal lovers like you, we are able to help prevent and stop animal abuse. We are able to rescue sick and injured animals off the streets. We are able to provide animals with a safe place to recover, nutritious food and outstanding veterinary care. On average, we provide sanctuary to over 300 animals at our facility at any given time, with dozens more placed with foster families until they are ready to be adopted. An important part of our work is giving these animals the emotional support, training and socialization abilities that will allow them to be adopted into new and loving homes and long-lasting relationships.

The customer service here sucks! I walked in and everyone at the front desk ignored me and looked away in order not to have to communicate with me. Keep in mind that I was there bright and early. I was the only customer. Once, I was finally greeted, I was told that the dog I came to adopt already had 2 pending applications, yet he was still listed on the website as available. I was also told by the front desk staff that the lady who had the dog was a regular adoption customer and had other small dogs. This seems like nepotism to me. I was also motioned to walk-thru the corridors to view other dogs and cats that were available. I walked into the dog kennel and everyone scrambled in order not to make eye contact with me. I was not greeted with a smile, nor was I encouraged to interact with the dogs. I was discouraged from putting in an application for this particular dog or any other animal. Please consider training the front desk and kennel staff about tolerance and true customer service. I walked in prepared to make a sizeable donation regardless to whether or not the dog I chose was available but I was so turned off by the mood of the employees, It actually made my stomach turn. Please update the listings online to reflect whether or not an animal has a pending adoption/application. This will not only save potential applicants from making empty trips to Shelby Farms, but will also clear up any confusion associated with the "adoption process"!
