We are a 501C3 non-profit organization with a government contract to manage our shelter. We take in approximately 7,500 animals a year, adopt out about 1,000 animals annually, and transfer approximately 800 animals a year to rescues. We are a partner with Maddie's Fund Community Coalition for Tuscaloosa to end healthy deaths in our shelter.
Our Adoption Process:
All our adult animals are spayed and neutered before being adopted, and the fee is $75.00. This includes the surgery, heartworm or feline/FIV test, rabies, microchip, vaccinations and a free visit to the vet for a check-up. All juvenile animals require an additional $100 spay/neuter deposit, that will be returned to them when they show proof the animal has been surgicaly altered. The adoption proces takes from 20-30 minutes, and you must sign a contract. Anyone who does not wish to have an animal altered may not adopt from us.
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.
