If you would like to adopt an animal, go to our online adoption application at this link.
All donations are greatly appreciated! If you would like to help provide supplies, the number one item needed is cat litter. We always need cat litter! We also need contractor strength garbage bags, puppy food, water hoses and nozzles, office supplies, toilet tissue and paper towels.
We receive 250-400 animals a month. Some animals come to us healthy, while others have been abused, have mange/ringworm/heart worms and so many other issues. We have a policy to only euthanize those animals who are too sick to save and are suffering just being alive and those who are aggressive and cannot be adopted or rescued. Often, every kennel is completely full and we have to delay intakes until we have a rescue transport leaving that will free up some kennels. We want to find all the animals a loving home!
BUT WE NEED HELP...
We are a private charitable organization [501 c (3)] and totally depend upon donations from local governments, businesses, citizens and the public. The Chilton County Commission and the cities of Clanton, Jemison, Maplesville and Thorsby are asked to donate regularly and a few do so. We do not charge a drop off fee to the citizens of Chilton County. The Chilton County Commission donated a building years back for our use as a Humane Society. We greatly appreciate this donation; however, the building was not built for an animal shelter so many things had to be done to function as one. Over the years we have grown out of this aging facility, but must continue to utilize it as a shelter. As with all old structures, our facility requires daily maintenance. There are many ways you can help - donate your time, donate land so that one day we can build, donate a facility, donate a van for animal transport, or donate money! Contact us at 205-755-9170.
