Check out our Events Calendar to keep up with what's happening at the Humane Society. And don't forget to check our Volunteer page if you have time to help with these events.

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 P.O. Box 70054, Tuscaloosa, AL 35407) 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 over 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.



Humane Society adoption applications are

Our Cat Adoption Center is now open Saturday 10am-2pm and by appointment. Our Dog Adoption Center is open by appointment only. Please check our online listings to find the pets you are interested in, then contact our Adoption Center staff to meet them.
