Pet Surrendering

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) 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.

Volunteer at GBHS

If you’re 16 years of age or older and have at least eight hours a month to commit to helping our pets, then we want you to join our volunteer team! The GBHS volunteers serve in a variety of ways, utilizing a wide range of skill sets.

GBHS Auxiliary

This website was funded through the generosity of the Greater Birmingham Humane Society Auxiliary. In 1979, a small group of women founded the Greater Birmingham Humane Society Auxiliary (GBHSA). The purpose of the organization was to assist the Greater Birmingham Humane Society by volunteering and raising funds to support their many programs and community efforts. That practice continues today, as the Auxiliary celebrates more than 30 years of service.
