The Montgomery Humane Society prevents cruelty to animals by operating an animal shelter for homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals; by operating an adoption center for healthy animals; by investigating cruelty and abuse cases; and by educating the public in animal owner responsibility
Who do you serve?
The community of Montgomery City and County, Alabama.
In the 1920s a small group of citizens organized a humane society. In 1952 property was purchased on Mobile Highway where they operated the shelter until spring of 1995, when we moved to our current facility on 1150 John Overton Drive. The Humane Society purchased 10 acres of land for this new facility and an additional 10 acres was donated by Mr. Billy Newell. The building came to fruition through the generosity of the Overton Estate and countless caring citizens in the Montgomery Community.
Reduction of euthanasia by spaying/neutering all pets that are placed for adoption in our Shelter.
Monetary donations to be able to continue medical treatment for all adoptable animals, continue our programs of Humane Education, Volunteer, Pet Therapy, Lost and Found, and Department of Humane Officers.
Plans for the future
Build or purchase a building to enhance Humane Education for yearly camps to educate children of all ages how to be compassionate and respectful of people, animals and the environment, and to recognize the interdependence of all living things.
