About the Humane Society


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.



What We Do

— We find loving adopters for homeless, neglected, and/or abused dogs and cats and other animals.
— We maintain lists of lost and found animals.
— We maintain lists of pets needing new homes and people seeking pets, and we assist others with vet care and finding homes for rescued animals.
— We document calls concerning animal cruelty and route these cases to the proper authorities.
— We are an information-and-referral service and have an extensive file of contact names and numbers.
— We assist needy members of our community with caring for their pets, including education, food and shelter and vet care.


 Our History: Read more about the founding and early years of the Humane Society of West Alabama



In 2010, we found homes for 109 rescued dogs and 91 cats. We also assisted with more than 100 other adoptions (helped people get vet care for and find homes for animals they rescued). Through our Lost and Found page, we helped numerous lost animals get back home.  We regularly care for about 80-100 animals waiting for adoption.

The Humane Society of West Alabama is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
