GHHS is no-kill animal shelter in Huntsville, Alabama.

Programs

Our programs are aimed at making a difference in our community in North Alabama.

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society (GHHS) is a no-kill shelter dedicated to furthering the humane care and treatment of animals and providing adoption services for the unwanted and homeless animals.
All of the programs listed below drive our mission forward and create an avenue to find proper placement for pets in our community.
Huntsville Hounds on Transport (HHOT Dogz)

GHHS’s newest community program is Huntsville Hounds on Transport (HHOT Dogz.)  GHHS began transporting dogs each month to partner shelters like BePaws They Matter Animal Rescue in New Jersey, Almost Home Humane Society in Iowa, Erie Humane Society in Pennsylvania, and more!  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 256-881-8081 for more information.

Pitch-In Pets

Sometimes GHHS receives or has animals with serious injuries or illnesses.

The Pitch-In Program rehabilitates these loving animals as much as possible in preparation of a forever home. Many of these animals require a longer stay at GHHS to recuperate from their illness or injuries.

We treat a variety of ailments, including heart worm, animals hit by cars, severely malnourished animals, and animals that have to have time to adjust to accepting the love and compassion that we have to offer. Please consider donating to the Pitch-In Pet Fund to help save these animals’ lives.
