Reunite with Your Pet



During the flood, several rescue groups partnered to set up and operate an an emergency animal shelter. Now, however, the operation is winding down, and owners are urged to come and reclaim their pets.

Among the partnering groups are the the ASPCA, the American Humane Association,  the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County, and the Memphis Animal  Shelter. Emily Schneider, with the ASPCA, says that more than 200 animals have been housed at the shelter. "They're mainly dogs and cats," she says, "but we also have ducks, parakeets, and a guinea pig."

About 110 pets are waiting to be reclaimed by their humans, but workers have witnessed many happy reunions, at least one of which was captured in the photo above — Salimah Kemp with her puppy Sky.

The emergency shelter is located at 1716 North Shelby Oaks Drive and is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Schneider says if individuals have trouble picking up their pets, they should contact the ASPCA and discuss arrangements. For more information call 901-826-5379.
