Rescue: One Life at a Time

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society has been rescuing North Alabama’s homeless animals for more than 50 years. Our mission is dedicated to supporting the humane care and treatment of all animals and providing adoption services to homeless and unwanted animals.

Help us build the first cat sanctuary in Alabama.

This facility will offer a safe space for cats that are positive with FeLV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline AIDS), with hopes of providing a space for education and adoption. The facility will be converted from the original GHHS Thrift Store on the Johnson Road property.

We are a no kill animal shelter

We find FURever homes for all animals in our care.

We are animal rescue

Located in Huntsville, Alabama, we are a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and serve the community of North Alabama.

We regularly work with other shelters & rescues to find the very best for our four-legged friends.
