Report a Loose Dog or Animal Cruelty
Memphis Animal Services responds to reports of loose dogs and cruelty and neglect of any animal within the City of Memphis.

If this is an emergency affecting the safety of a person, please call 911.

Memphis Animal Services accepts calls from the public regarding loose dogs, injured pets, animal cruelty, or dog bites Monday through Friday during our business hours. Please call 901-636-1416 and press 1. We will need to know the address where the animal is located as well as what your concern is.

If you’re calling after hours, please call 901-545-COPS, the police non-emergency line. Memphis Police Department will contact MAS officers as needed in these situations.

Please note: Cats have the legal right to roam in the City of Memphis. It is for this reason that we do not respond to complaints about loose cats.
