Huntsville Hounds on Transport (HHOT Dogz)

GHHS’s newest community program is Huntsville Hounds on Transport (HHOT Dogz.)  In the spring, GHHS began transporting dogs each month to the Humane Society of Washington County in Maryland or Humane Rescue Alliance in Washington DC.  Our new cargo van, donated by Jerry Damson Automotive Group, can carry 20+ dogs, depending on their size.  This is a very exciting opportunity for GHHS to be able to save more of our community’s animals and provide more animals with loving homes.  GHHS is so excited to begin this chapter of saving more lives.  

If you are interested in being a volunteer driver, let us know!  You must be at least 25 years old with a good driving record.  Give us a call at 256-991-8081 for more information.

Pet Wellness Clinics

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society in partnership with Rocket City Mobile Vet offers Pet Wellness Clinics on the second Saturday of each month from 9am until 2pm.  The clinics will be held at the Greater Huntsville Humane Society (2812 Johnson Road).  Clinics will offer wellness exams, annual vaccinations, heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and microchipping if needed. $12 wellness exam is required for all pets seen by the doctor.

The clinics are for low-income families in the greater Huntsville Area.  The household income must be under $35,000 annually.  Please bring a photo ID and proof of income.  For additional information please call 256-881-8081.
