Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Humane Society of West Alabama is located in the cities of Tuscaloosa and Northport, in Tuscaloosa County. We may choose not to approve adoptions at great distances (farther than a neighboring state) due to our unwavering care to our rescued animals. Long distance travels can cause too much stress on an animal. We would prefer to limit the distance our animals will travel due to any health or safety risks.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Humane Society of West Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is a no-kill, all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for dogs and cats in need, humane animal welfare education, and stopping animal abuse. We do not have a contract with the city to take in found animals, and receive no money from any government agency or national organization - we are NOT affiliated in any way with the Humane Society of the United States. We are a private nonprofit organization dependent on donations, fundraisers and volunteers to continue our work.

Our Adoption Process:

We ask for an adoption fee of only $75, a donation to help defray veterinary and general care expenses. All animals are current on vaccinations, tested for diseases and parasites, dewormed, spayed/neutered as soon as they are healthy enough for surgery (usually prior to 6 months of age), and are maintained on healthy diets and flea/tick preventative with our dog regimen adding heartworm preventative. Most dogs are microchipped - microchipping will be stated in individual profiles. All vet care is completed prior to an animal becoming adoptable, after they are cleared for adoption by one of our local veterinarians. Vet records are given to adopters.

We require an adoption application to be submitted for approval prior to adoption. To apply for adoption, visit to fill out an online application. You can also obtain a paper application by downloading the Word application from our website, mailed by request or by visiting one of our locations in person. We do not require an application for meeting an animal at dog meet & greets or during open hours of our cat adoption center. We always recommend meeting an animal prior to making a decision to adopt. Our application is only preliminary, and is non-binding for adoption of a specific animal or for adoption at all.

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.
