About Our Rescue Group:

The Humane Society of Alamance County (HSAC) is a non-profit organization funded solely by donations, fundraisers and membership fees. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers working toward alleviating animal suffering and ending pet overpopulation. We have 5 main programs, and receive approximately 900 phone calls per month from the public. Since restructuring in 1988, our main focus has been on spay/neuter. We believe the spay and neuter of all companion animals is the answer to ending the tragedy of pet overpopulation. We average spaying or neutering 1000 animals per year through our low cost program. We do not have a physical shelter location but have a small network of volunteers who provide foster care in their homes. Approximately 300 animals per year come through our foster program. Other services include an education program for children, emergency medical assistance, and food assistance for qualifying families.

Our greatest needs are for foster families, volunteers to supervise dogs and cats at adoption fairs and monetary donations to help with our vet bills, our primary expense.

Come Meet our Pets:

HSAC holds an adoption fair the first Saturday of each month from 11am - 1pm at PetSmart, University Drive in Burlington, NC. We also hold a new volunteer orientation the first Saturday of every month at PetSmart, Burlington, NC from 10am - 11am.

Other fairs are held as locations and volunteers are available and announced on our website and our social media platforms.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process includes an application and possible home visit. We strive to match humans and animals so that they can enjoy many happy years together. The adoption fee is $150 for dogs and $85 for cats which includes vaccines, deworming, microchip, and spay or neuter. Dogs 6 months and older are tested for heartworms and all cats are combo tested for FeLV and FIV.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
