Adoption Center Tours
The staff and animals love when students come to visit the facility to say hello and learn about the shelter! Students and other civic groups from around the Birmingham Metro area are encouraged to visit the GBHS for guided tours that touch on the mission of the GBHS, β€œto promote humane treatment of people and animals through education, advocacy, and services.” Tours usually take 30-45 minutes, depending on the size and ages of the group.
