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 cage-free Cat Adoption Center at 2430 36th St in Northport (not far from downtown Tuscaloosa) is open every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. (major holidays excluded). We are available to schedule appointments during the week for any adoption applicant! Click over to www.humanesocietyofwa.org for more adoption center information.
All dogs are in foster homes and at our dog care facility, a private residence. All are available to meet by appointment or at our monthly Adopt-A-Thons, usually falling on the second weekend of the month. Please call 205-554-0011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment to meet a particular dog. Also be on the lookout for our monthly adopt-a-thons! They will always be posted on our events calendar at www.humanesocietyofwa.org or at www.facebook.com/humaneswa!

We require an adoption application to be submitted for approval prior to adoption. To apply for adoption, visit www.humanesocietyofwa.org/formsinfo.html 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.
