ALIVE Memphis Rescue is a foster based program for homeless animals that works to save as many animals as they can from kill shelters and the streets. If you are interested in getting involved, they are always looking for families who want to foster or adopt.

Teams will compete for Most Ridiculous, Most Cheesiest, Best Tomato Soup, Fan Favorite, and Best All Around. The Fan Favorite will be decided by, of course, the fans.
