Did you know that many wonderful dogs are overlooked at shelters across the nation every day simply because of the color of their fur? Black is the most common color of dog that you’ll find at any shelter. Most shelters find that black dogs, especially large ones, are often the most difficult to place into forever homes.
As an adopter, you have the power to make a real difference in the life of a black shelter dog--a dog often slighted by other adopters in favor of a more colorful companion. Join others in experiencing the joys of having a black dog in your life and adopt one today! View some of our GBHS Black Dog Club members here.
When you adopt a black dog from the Greater Birmingham Humane Society, you’ll have the opportunity to become a member of the GBHS Black Dog Club. However, any parents of a predominantly black dog are welcome to join the club. For non-adopters, there is a $20 individual membership fee, or the whole family can join for just $35. As a member, you will receive a complimentary GBHS Black Dog Club logo t-shirt, and a 20% off coupon for the GBHS Gift Shop.
