Wiregrass Humane Society
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 (See Location/Hours). Our friendly staff will assist you and answer any questions you may have. You will be asked to fill out an adoption application which will be reviewed by our staff. Our standard adoption fee is $90.00. 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. All adopters receive an Adoption Gift Bag which includes instructional training videos, pet food samples, coupons, and an assortment of other Welcome Home items.
