The Greater Birmingham Humane Society offers a wide variety of services to our community. You may learn about some of our most prominent services by selecting one of the following links:
Report Animal Cruelty - In our quest to reduce animal cruelty we must totally rely on you and your love for animals. We realize that it is sometimes difficult to know when to intervene. We hope that the guidelines contained in this section will help you know when to seek help for a neglected or abused animal.
Spay/Neuter Resources - The Greater Birmingham Humane Society encourages all pet owners to have their pet spayed or neutered. Altering or “fixing” pets is the only proven method to ending the senseless euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets in our community. Help us stop the killing by reviewing the spay or neuter resources available in our community and make an appointment to have your pet altered today!
Pet Surrendering - The Greater Birmingham Humane Society would like to find a home for every animal we receive. However, you should be aware that adoption from our facilities may not be possible even for healthy, friendly, well-behaved pets. Learn how you can increase the possibility that your pet will find a new family.
Humane Education - The Greater Birmingham Humane Society’s Humane Education Program reaches children of all ages through class tours and sharing our curriculum. Additionally our Education Department coordinates our Humane Teen Club!
Mobile Adoption & Transport Unit - Thanks to a $128,000 grant from the ASPCA, the GBHS recently was able to purchase a state-of-the-art mobile adoption & transport unit. The new vehicle will be used in the transport of animals, mobile adoption events, and mobile veterinary care (including spaying and neutering).
The Greater Birmingham Humane Society's mission is to promote the humane treatment of animals and people through education, advocacy, and services.
