Give a Wag! Gives to Memphis Shelters

Relying entirely on a foster network, ALIVE Rescue was founded by two passionate women who sought to provide gap services to failed foster situations for homeless animals in Memphis. Since its founding, ALIVE has built itself from the ground up. They provide information about animal rights efforts, responsible pet ownership, and even how to get involved with breed targeting legislation locally. ALIVE is currently working on their newest project - Throw Me A Bone - which seeks to provide supplemental funds to low-income pet owners in order to prevent surrender. 

Serving as the government contracted shelter, the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County (HSMSC) places thousands of animals in a forever home. Unfortunately, due to Memphis' significant pet overpopulation problem, they are unable to take stray animals lacking any significant veterinary issue, so it falls on the shoulders of the rescue to support HSMSC. This struggle has bolstered their spay-neuter programs, and they are one of the first lines of defence against instances of animal cruelty. HSMSC does the very best they can while maintaining a strong sense of compassion. 

Coming in as the largest no-kill shelter in Memphis, Sunny Meadows is fiercely committed to reducing rates of euthanasia in Memphis. They are able to provide veterinary care, rehabilitation training, and adoption placements for hundreds each year. Sunny Meadows goes the extra mile in ensuring all prospective adopters are the right fit and have all the right tools to provide dogs with a home for the rest of their lives. Usually present at all dog-related events to give ownership advice and host adoption events, Sunny Meadows is a safety net for all of Memphis' unwanted pups.

    #4 Uptown Carriages

    Memphis was a major stopping point for horse-drawn carriages back in the day, and coach drivers would keep their dogs close for protection. Now, Uptown Carriages welcomes well-behaved dogs to join their humans on a sightseeing tour by carriage. Pretend it's the 1900s while a horse pulls you around! Depending on which parts of the city you would like to see, prices vary from $45-$200, and year round tour times are quite flexible.
