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.

In March 2019, we joined the Best Friends Partner Network.
Best Friends is a nation-wide organization that is "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

  • We provide shelter, love, and healthcare to orphaned/unwanted cats and dogs in the West Alabama area while they await their forever homes.

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

  • We assist in finding homes for others when we can’t take on the pet by posting them on our website and on PetFinder as "Courtesy Listings."

  • We assist, when able, to help with vet care/bills if it allows a pet to stay in their home.

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


Due to the corona virus pandemic, both our dog and cat shelters remain closed to the public; however, we continue to process adoptions by appointments. If you are interested in adopting any of the animals you see under the "Adoptable Dogs" or "Adoptable Cats" section of our website, please fill out an adoption application and we will be in touch to schedule an appointment once your application has been approved. We apologize for any inconvenience.
