We'd love to see you! All adoptions and visits are by appointment only. To speed things up, please fill out an adoption application right here and email us at or call 205-554-0011 and leave a message. Someone will get back to you ASAP about setting up an appointment to come see our dogs or cats.

- Welcome - 

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 dependent on donations and fundraisers to continue our work.

In March 2019, we joined the Best Friends Partner Network. Best Friends is a nationwide organization committed to "saving the lives of homeless pets through collaboration and implementation of effective adoption, spay/neuter and intake prevention programs." We are thrilled to be partnered with them in their mission to make America no-kill by 2025. Together, we will SAVE THEM ALL!

What We Do

  • Provide shelter, love and health care to orphaned/unwanted cats and dogs in the West Alabama area while they await their forever homes.

  • Advise and help get the word out on lost/found pets to help reunite owners.

  • Help finding homes for others by posting available pets on PetFinder as Courtesy Listings.

  • Assist, when able, with vet care/bills if it allows a pet to stay in its home.

  • Document calls concerning animal cruelty and route these cases to the proper authorities. PLEASE NOTE: if you see a case of animal cruelty, call the police ASAP.
