We know we keep asking, but please... we have over 50 dogs at the shelter and have been told to find foster homes for a good number of them. We have numerous Pitbulls in need as well as several dogs that are in immediate danger because they have been at the shelter too long and/or are living outside. These include Tuxedo, Johnny, Taz, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Samson, Trixie, and Bosco (to name a few).

We could also use some foster homes for smaller dogs (e.g., Spike, Callie, etc.) and puppies (some are not even posted yet).

We still have some of our precious pups living in cages at the vet's office as well (not a great life). Lady, Tramp, Billy, Gibson, Ivy, and Reed are just some of them.

Finally, Mork and Mindy need an indoor foster home as well (their current foster home cannot bring them inside and it is much to cold to be living outside).

The situation is really grim at this point because people keep abandoning their dogs (we have received 8 or so dogs in the last few days- some strays, some clearly abandoned, etc.).

Please come by the shelter and speak with Joan Welch. You may call her at 870-739-5412 or 870-739-1145. If you have trouble reaching her, please call Allison at 901-240-9848 or Lisa at 901-826-0292. We know the holidays are hectic, but you may be their only chance.
