Memphis Area Pets Waiting To Be Adopted: Piper, Asami & More

Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same…

Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Memphis area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Tennessee, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new fur child is at Alive Rescue Memphis, where Asami the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Piper, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
