Humane Society Adoption Center and Cat Care Center

OPEN 10am-2pm Saturday

The Humane Society Adoption Center and Cat Care Center is at 1515 Veterans Memorial Parkway, Tuscaloosa, AL. The Adoption Center is open Saturday 10am-2pm. At our Adoption/Cat Care Center, you may obtain information about the Humane Society, find out about our adoption process, and meet some of the cats available for adoption.

The Adoption Center is a home for cats only; there are no dogs at the Adoption/Cat Care Center. Dogs are seen by appointment only. Many of the cats the Humane Society has available for adoption are housed at the Adoption Center; the rest are in foster care. Dogs waiting for adoption are in foster care or at our Dog Care Center, which IS NOT open to the public. If you want to adopt an animal, you should start by checking our lists of adoptable animals. Adoptable animals may be seen on our Dog List and Cat List. Check our Events Calendar for other opportunities to meet the animals.

To start the adoption process, you will need to fill out an adoption application and be accepted as an adopter. CLICK HERE for links to the adoption applications. You can fill out an application even before you decide which animal you want to adopt. Note that it may take several days for us to process the application.

Our cage-free Adoption/Cat Care Center is open Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm with the exception of major holidays and some home football games. Appointments are available at other times. Some HSWA cats and all dogs are in foster care and require an appointment to be seen. Please contact us at 205-554-0011 or email for an appointment or for more info about our organization and our animals. Our Adoption Center is a home for our healthy, adoptable animals. We DO NOT accept abandoned or rescued animals at any of our sites; please DO NOT bring them.

None of our cats are in cages; they are able to exercise and socialize as they please. Look for our volunteer application if you'd like to join our team of adoption center volunteers!
Look for our foster application if you can offer a home to a dog or cat waiting for adoption! If you are interested in adopting from the Humane Society, please call 554-0011 or e-mail to make an apointment to visit animals in foster care or at the Adoption Center. ONLY CATS may be seen at the Adoption Center. Dogs are only seen by appointment.



Rescue Award from Simply Cat Breeds


The Humane Society of West Alabama is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that helps rescued animals find homes. Our adoption centers house healthy, adoptable animals, and we introduce new animals carefully. Please do not bring abandoned or rescued animals to the Humane Society Adoption Center; they CAN NOT be accepted! Abandoned/unwanted animals should be taken to the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter. The Humane Society works with Metro Animal Shelter and other local rescue organizations to get homeless animals adopted. Call HSWA at 205-554-0011 for more information.
Directions: To reach the Humane Society Adoption Center, travel east on Veterans Memorial Parkway, take the fourth driveway (oneway in) after the traffic light by Home Depot, just before 16th Ave E. There are a few parking places behind the headquarters, but parking is very limited. Please do not park so as to block the driveway beside and behind the adoption center. Please use the back door (facing the garage) which is arranged so that animals in the house will not get out. Do not use the front door (facing Veterans Memorial Parkway), it is NOT for visitor use.
LOOK HERE for information about our Dog Care Center.
Dogs are seen by appointment only.
