Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our mission is to help strays and unwanted family pets find loving and responsible homes and to educate the public regarding the problem of pet overpopulation and the importance of spaying/neutering their pets.
The Alabama Animal Adoption Society is a nonprofit, tax exempt organization which was founded in 1977 by a small group of people whose primary goal was to solve the problem of strays and unwanted pets in need of finding loving homes. The AAAS started as a mobile pet adoption that would operate two Saturdays a month.
In November of 1982 the AAAS purchased a building which is now known as the Center. Since then, the AAAS has been holding adoptions at this facility every Saturday, with the exceptions of some holidays, for the purpose of adopting out animals to responsible and loving homes.
It is our goal that we can find permanent homes for the strays and unwanted pets and end pet over population through our many services, including our vigorous spay and neuter program.
All of our animals are in foster homes or with their current owners. We do NOT euthanize. We are always looking for more foster homes and volunteers. If you are interested please contact us.

Kittens and Puppies
Shots appropriate to the pet's age
Free spay or neuter certificates that can be taken to one of our participating veterinarians
All permanent shots with the exception of rabies. Because rabies vaccinations (required annually by Alabama State Law) provide a tag and certificate made out in the owner's name, it is best for the new owner to take care of this in case the pet ever becomes lost.
If not already spayed or neutered, pet comes with a free spay or neuter certificate that can be taken to one of our participating veterinarians
The Adoption Process
The Alabama Animal Adoption Society's goal is to place each pet in the right home for that particular animal. To ensure the placement of a pet in the proper home environment, potential owners are interviewed and must fill out an application for adoption. The application asks information that helps us determine whether the home would be the right one for that pet. All applicants must be approved before they adopt a pet.
We do require a vet reference, fence and/or home inspection if it is requested by the foster home.
We do not adopt out of the State of Alabama. If you do not live in the Jefferson county or it's surrounding counties but you are a resident of Alabama please call us before you start the adoption process.
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.
