IMPORTANT - 06/23/2016
Due to a high volume of intake over the past two days we are limited on space for public intake. Please call us at 205-752-9101 before bringing an animal to the shelter to see whether or not we have room for the animal. You may also text our lost/found hotline at 205-737-3221 to inquire about space. We do not take animals from the public when we are beyond capacity.
