COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. — The Town of Collierville is launching a new campaign promoting Collierville Animal Services titled, “Be a Hero. Adopt a Pet!” The goal of the campaign is to encourage individuals and families, who are considering pet adoption, to choose one of the animals at the Collierville Animal Shelter.

To kick off the campaign, Collierville Police Officers and Firefighters paid a visit to the Collierville Animal Shelter to meet some of the cats and dogs currently waiting for adoption. The campaign centers on the belief that pet adoption is a heroic way to help animals in need much like Collierville’s selfless first responders help the Town every day.

Collierville Animal Services believes when someone adopts a pet from the Collierville Animal Shelter, they have personally given that animal a second chance at life. 

The Collierville Animal Shelter, like many animal shelters across the nation, is experiencing growing numbers of animals in need of adoption this year. They currently have 74 pets available for adoption. Those interested in adopting from Collierville Animal Services can learn more about the process and see available animals here.

ADOPTION POLICY

You must be at least 21 years of age, have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household to adopt a pet, and have valid identification with your current address.
