A Story By

Guess who’s back…. back again with your Weekend Guide Update 🎢

But on much better notes: Memphis football is only 19 days away.Β 

Safety reminder: Please follow all business + event guidelines, wear a mask to protect yourself + those around you as COVID cases begin to rise in the area. Be safe + have fun, Memphis!

Leopold is a 3 year old male short haired kitty. He is so so sweet, and loves to cuddle. He is the big man on campus though and really likes his space, so he would do best in a home with no other animals. He would be the perfect companion to laze around the house on a rainy day. Leopold is an old soul and would probably prefer to be in a home with no small children. Did you know adoptions for cats are $50 too?! Anyone interested in Leopold can set up a meet and greet with the Humane Society Adoption Counselors by submitting an application on our website memphishumane.org or emailing [email protected]
