Information

  • 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.
