For the moment the shelter will require appointments for anyone interested in Adopting, Fostering, or participating in Happy Hour. If you arrive at the shelter without an appointment for any of the above you will be turned away. We will continue to let individuals visit the shelter to look for their missing pets, though you may be asked to wait outside due to capacity constraints.  To schedule an appointment you can use our online booking tool below or call the shelter at 205-752-9101.  No more than 2 individuals per group.

Interested in adopting?  Please read!!
Since adoption appointments are limited to 30 minute intervals, if you are interested in adopting, please try to have an animal in mind before visiting our facility.  We also ask that you visit our adoption pages and pre-fill out the online application.  This will expedite the adoption process (note: an online application does NOT RESERVE an animal for adoption).

If you exceed your allotted time…
You may be asked to return to your vehicle to complete the adoption or fostering process.

Using the appointment tool 
Just select a Program (Adoptions, Fostering, or Happy Hour) and then hit the ‘continue’ button.  A list of available dates and times will pop up.  Select the time and then fill out the appropriate information.  All appointments will be ‘pending’ until a staff member contacts you to verify the appointment.
