Funds from this project are used solely to help pets and pet owners who need supplies or food or extremely basic vet care- like annual checkups and vaccinations.  In this way we hope to decrease the number of people surrendering their pets to kill shelters in the Memphis area. We unfortunately do not have funds for emergency vetting at this time.  

Are you or someone you know struggling to care for your pet by providing food and vetting? Please fill out the form below. We examine each case individually and will get back with you regarding our ability to help.

Please note that the Throw Me a Bone fund is currently only providing assistance to families that are living below the poverty line or are experiencing financial or other hardships. By accepting a Throw Me a Bone grant, you are asserting that you intend to keep your pet for its life and will contact ALIVE Rescue Memphis if you are unable to keep your pet for any reason. You will cooperate with follow-up phone calls to ensure your pet is healthy and safe. You will also provide photographs of your pet, which ALIVE Rescue Memphis may use in our newsletters, social media sites, and other public outlets. Your privacy is important to us, so please let us know if you would not like your family’s name to be used in any of our stories.
