Please consider adopting your next family member from the Humane Society of Chilton County (HSCC)! We have many wonderful animals and adopting them helps us save as many lives as we can. Plus, adopting from the shelter saves you hundreds of dollars over getting a "free" pet!

With a "free to a good home" pet, you have to pay for vet visits to acquire vaccinations, deworming, spaying or neutering, microchipping and rabies shot.  Adopting from our shelter will save you hundreds of dollars! Adoption rates are:


Puppies & Adult Dogs $125
Dogs 6 years old and over $50
Cats up to 5 months old $50
Cats 6 months old and over $25

Adoption includes spay or neuter, rabies shot, microchip, up to date on normal shots, bordetella shot, flea treament, and deworming.   

PLUS,  you get a free vet visit with a Chilton County vet within 3 days of adoption.

PLUS,  when you adopt from the shelter, you also qualify for 30 days of free pet health insurance with 24 Pet Watch.

Visit this page after adopting your new family member to register your insurance

We Need Your Help

The HSCC receives 250-400 animals a month.  Some animals enter the shelter healthy, while others are abused, neglected, diseased or even critically injured.  The policy of the HSCC is to euthanize ONLY those animals too sick to save or too aggressive to be adopted or rescued.  As a result of this policy, there are many times the HSCC's capacity is full and must be closed to intakes until space is available.  Adoptions and Rescues are vitally important to the pets of Chilton County.  We want to find loving homes for all the animals entering our doors!


The HSCC is a private charitable organization [501(c)(3)] totally dependent 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.  No drop off fee is charged to the citizens of Chilton County.  

The HSCC is actively raising money to build and equip a new facility.  Our current building lacks heating, air conditioning, ventilation, space and equipment. Daily maintenance to the current facility takes away funds and personnel, both on which our pets' livelihood depend.  

Donations are greatly appreciated!  Click the donate button on our home page.  Contact us at 205-755-9170 if you would like to volunteer or donate in any way.  HELP, we need you!

Pet cremations are provided in a way that responds to the tenderness of your grief and the respect you have for your pet's life. Your pet's ashes will be placed in a solid black urn; however, owners can furnish their own urn. 


Working with the Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic in Birmingham, we are happy to offer Chilton County residents a low cost option for spay and neuter services.

Prices are below:

Female Dog$55
Male Dog or Female Cat$40
Male Cat
Female/Male Feral Cat



On the first Wednesday of each month, the Alabama Spay/Neuter "Snip It Express" transport truck will pick up pets in the shelter parking lot, take them to be fixed, and return them for owners' pick up the next day. To get your Snip It Ticket, just come by the shelter during our normal hours and purchase however many you need!  Then just follow the instructions on the ticket to make your pet's reservation. 

Tickets can be purchased at the shelter or by calling the shelter at 755-9170 during opened hours.
