NO kill shelters near me please

Anyone know of a no kill shelter in Bartlett, TN (Memphis,TN) where I could take my cats tomorrow?

My life's a mess and I cannot care for them any longer, at least for 1 month, after that I might be able to take them back if that's possible. Financially, I'm broke...

Only place I knew to call was the Humane Society but they are full and not accepting any more pets now. I have no friends or relatives who will help either...already checked.

Please help, I do not want the cats to suffer for my mistakes. They are great cats and I ave a large supply of food for them.

PM with info if you have it, or post here ASAP.

here are some places to look into, I'm not sure how close all of them are to you, Here are two rescues that look good, I'll try to find more.

I'm sorry you can't keep your pets, I wish I could do more to help...

Can you get like a foster for them while you are unable to care for them, then take them back? Instead of taking them to a shelter...

Well hmm. I think alot of us are broke when we are far, far from it. There are tons of things we can cut from our lifestyles. Getting rid of cats which, in all reality are among the cheapest things you can have is silly.

Go out, buy a 10lb bag of food...should be plenty to last them for a while....dry food, costs a few bucks. Cats wont like it, but they will like starving less.

Buy a 40lb bag of tidy cat litter for another few bucks. For less than 20, you have the cats for a month.

If you're about to be homeless, and I'm not saying that's the situation here, I don't know that, but I think it's selfless and loving to make sure your cats have a safe place first.

Well right, but nothing about being homeless was mentioned so safety-wise, the cats arent any less safe today than they were yesterday.

Well, maybe "safe" wasn't the right word. We don't know his situation and it's none of our business. He's asking for our help for a heartbreaking situation.
