STRAY and UNWANTED ANIMALS: Stray,
unwanted and unknown animals should be taken to Tuscaloosa Metro
Animal Shelter. Please DO NOT bring any
stray or homeless animals directly to the Humane Society, we
do not have facilities for accepting such animals!! Metro
Animal shelter is the drop-off site for unwanted
animals. The Humane Society
can only care for a limited number of animals. When we have room
to accept more animals, they come to us through our veterinarians,
through our work with Metro Animal Shelter and local animal control,
and through our own volunteers' rescue efforts. We rescue and
find homes for as many animals as possible, but our facilities
and our volunteer efforts are limited!! Introducing
a stray animal with unknown health problems risks the health
of our other animals and jeapordizes our rescue efforts. Please
DO NOT bring any stray, homeless or unwanted animal directly
to the Humane Society!!!!
DONATIONS: We ALWAYS need money. You
can donate through paypal (see link at the left of this page), or
by mailing a check to our Adoption Center (1515 Veterans Memorial
Pkwy, Tuscaloosa) or by bringing your cash or check (no credit/debit
cards) to our Flea Market in Northport during regular operating hours.
We currently have about 120 animals in our care, about 80 of them
awaiting adoption. If you wish to help us with our ongoing rescue
and adoption operations, please consider a donation. We have been
a pet rescue and adoption organization for nearly 40 years. We are
an all-volunteer organization: none of the money we receive through
donations or fundraising is used for salaries.
FOSTER HOMES: We
really need foster homes, to care for animals displaced and homeless
due to the storm. Some of these animals are not available for adoption,
they just need a temporary place to stay while their family looks
for a new home or job. If you can provide temporary care for any
of our animals, please consider applying to become a foster home. Look
here for more information on providing foster care and how to apply.
