Wiregrass Humane Society
  • Recurring Love Campaign

    More than anything, shelter pets desperately need support day after day. It costs an average of $5/day to keep EACH of our pets fed, medicated, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and sheltered in a clean environment. Multiply $5/day by over 100 pets! That’s what it takes to keep our shelter operating EVERY DAY. Please help us help these pets by clicking the DONATE button. You have the option of a one-time donation as well as a recurring donation. Thank you for your help! Read More

  • About Us
  • How Do I Adopt?
  • Location

Established in 1991, the Wiregrass Humane Society is an animal rescue facility located in Dothan, Alabama. Our facility houses approximately 130 animals that are available for adoption. The majority of animals at our shelter are animals that have been rescued from the City of Dothan Animal Control Division. Animal Control officers pick up stray animals throughout the City of Dothan. Animals that are not claimed by their owners within 20 days are euthanized. The Wiregrass Humane Society rescues as many animals as possible from Animal Control, providing these innocent animals with a second chance for life.

The Society is organized for the purpose of providing effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals; the care of abused and abandoned animals; the prevention of pet overpopulation in the community; and educating the public on the aforementioned. The Society is not formed for pecuniary or financial gain, and is exempt from Federal taxation under the provisions of the Statute 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code . Help us give homeless animals of the Wiregrass a second chance.


How Do I Adopt?

Did you see an animal you are interested in? If you would like to see this animal or any of the others at our facility, visit us during our regular business hours. Our friendly staff will assist you and answer any questions you may have.


Adoption Application

You will be asked to fill out an adoption application which will be reviewed by our staff. Our standard adoption fee is $75.00.


Medical History

All animals adopted from our facility have been either spayed or neutered and are current on vaccinations. Copies of the animal’s medical record and rabies vaccination certificate are provided to each adopter. In addition, each animal adopted receives one free checkup from Southeast Alabama Veterinary Clinic.
