Please check out www.thepupcrawl.com, a very worthy cause that helps our organization and other animal shelters across the country.

We also believe in pet insurance to help pet owners afford those unfortunate accidents and illnesses that occur in every day life. Please take a look at Trumanion Pet Insurance at: http://www.trupanion.com/

Adopting A Friend



Anyone wishing to adopt an animal must fill out an application and an adoption contract. The application is reviewed before the adoption is approved. FOCAS reserves the right to decline an adoption contract. The adoption fee (which barely covers costs) is usually $60.00 for cats, and for dogs is $75.00 and up. This includes up-to-date shots, testing, deworming and spay/neuter. If it was not for donations, we would not be able to spay and neuter the animals we now have in foster care. So thank you and please keep the donations coming so we can keep helping the animals.

Who We Are


President - Julie Brown 901-412-2627 

Secretary/Treasurer - Chris Schafer

FOCAS (Friends of the Community Animal Society) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), volunteer organization. Our volunteers raise funds for sick animal veterinary care, foster care of sick and orphaned animals, and community education. If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a foster parent, call the FOCAS President at 901-412-2627 or email at focasrescue@yahoo.com. We are always in need of foster parents, especially to bottle feed and care for the sick ones that need special care. Even if you can only foster for a short while, it would help relieve some others!




The purposes of this corporation shall be: 
1. To provide volunteer care and foster homes for homeless, unwanted and neglected animals in the community of Memphis, Tennessee and surrounding areas. 
2. To promote responsible pet ownership, particularly in the areas of over-population, pet neglect and pet abuse. 
3. All animals are placed in foster homes until they are adopted.
