The Humane Society of West Alabama , founded in 1971, is a no-kill,
all-volunteer, nonprofit organization. We have no administrative
costs, so most of our funds are spent on direct aid for the dogs
and cats in our care. We receive no money from any governmental
agency or national humane organization. We are totally dependent
on donations and fund-raisers to continue our work.
