Adopting a friend

Adopting a friend for life is easy at the Wiregrass Humane Society. Once you have selected a pet for adoption you will fill out a short adoption application and meet with one of our adoption counselors and if approved we will go over our adoption contract and you go home with your new friend. Our adoption fee ranges from $90-$30 for both dogs and cats. This adoption fee covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and the pet will be up-to-date on its shots, worming, rabies vaccination (if old enough to receive). All pets are required to be spayed or neutered before leaving our shelter so if you select a pet that has not had surgery we will schedule this procedure and take the pet in for surgery. You will have the option of picking up your pet at the veterinarian's office or at our shelter. We do not make any exceptions to this policy.

Come Visit Us!

The Wiregrass Humane Society is located next to Dothan Animal Control and the Omussee Water Treatment Plant (approx. 3 miles outside the circle). You will turn on Webb Road heading outside the Ross Clark Circle, you will then turn left on Omussee Road and then take a right on Jerry Drive. We are the first building on the left. We are open Monday through Sunday from 12:00 noon to 4:30 pm.
