ADOPT LOBO OR MAPLE FOR ONLY $50 UNTIL APRIL 30TH

What a gorgeous looking German Shepherd mix Lobo is!  Still only a year old, Lobo is nearly full-grown but will probably get a little heavier than his current 80-ish pounds. He is still a puppy--albeit a giant puppy.  He seems really excited about playing with toys but behaves like he doesn't have much experience with them. He walks pretty well on a leash and shows readiness to learn 'sit' and 'come here.'  He's a curious guy, but Lobo hasn't yet had much human guidance. He needs his keeper to set and enforce the rules, and to teach him how great it feels to be told that he's a good dog. With a savvy owner, Lobo will keep turning heads! Maple arrived at the shelter and doesn’t quite know what to make of things. He’s very young and a bit shy. His background and his genetics are both a bit of a mystery, but that just adds to the intrigue!

Maple likes quiet snuggles and is getting the hang of leash walking. With love and reassurance, we definitely see a precocious personality waiting to spring forth! Maple is being socialized with other dogs and people and hoping for a quick transfer to his new loving home.

Adopt Lobo or Maple until April 30, 2016 for only $50. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccines, city registration tag, and a microchip--a $200 plus BARGAIN!! (normal adoption fee is $100 for all animals in the shelter and $50 for cats in the Thrift Store, which is located on 5th next to the ALON station).

The shelter is open M-F from 10am-1pm and 2-6pm. For information about animal adoptions or use of the crematorium, please call 432-837-9030 or 837-2532. Also visit our websites @ www.alpinehumanesociety.org OR www.Petfinder.com.

ADOPT ELSA OR MICKEY FOR ONLY $50 UNTIL APRIL 23RD

Elsa is an Australian Cattle Dog mix who is quite a listener - she looks to humans for direction, and is ready to bond by having adventures together.  Elsa is a 30 to 35-lb youngish dog, with perky, mismatched ears (they may be on their way to standing up!). An intelligent breed, she'll do best in a home that interacts with her and gives her exercise (normal-dog daily heaven of a walk/run/hike/bike with her person and possibly some other dog pals.) She's alert and ready for fun, but also deeply satisfied sitting close and getting a chest or ear rub.

MICKEY is a ready-made great dog. He’s well mannered, friendly, calm, barks very little, and walks perfectly on a leash. With his super-cute, alert ears and friendly expression, he’s happy and welcoming to other dogs. Best of all, give him a chest rub on his gorgeous creamy white and black coat, and he’ll give gentle kisses in exchange. He’s going to be a great friend to a lucky family. Mickey and Elsa can be adopted for only $50 until April 23rd (normal adoption fee is $100 for all animals in the shelter and $50 for cats in the Thrift Store, which is located on 5th next to the ALON station).

You can also help our shelter animals by shopping at the AHS THRIFT STORE, on 5th St. next to the Uncle's station. Tip: All cats/kittens at the Thrift Store are always only $50!!

Who We Are

The Alpine Humane Society of Brewster County, Texas began operation on October 26, 1982 in response to an article in the October 14 issue of the Alpine Avalanche concerning the dreadful conditions at the so-called shelter which was located near the old city dump. The purpose of the Humane Society is to shelter homeless and abused animals, operate a progressive adoption program and encourage the spay/neutering of animals in order to control overpopulation.

The Alpine Humane Society is a non-profit organization with a 501(C) (3) tax status. It has a membership of approximately 50. The Society is governed by a nine member board with terms rotating every two-three years.

In addition to membership dues, donations and fund raising events, AHS is supported by interest from a more than $1 million trust established when Dr. Lois Helen Cole left her entire estate to the Humane Society in 1996. Each year AHS funds more than $45,000 worth of veterinary fees in Brewster County.

Hundreds of animals a year pass through the shelter gates. The shelter is usually at capacity with approximately 20--30 dogs and 10-20 cats awaiting homes. The new shelter opened in 2011 and is operated by the City of Alpine. Members of the Alpine Humane Society provide volunteer services as well as supplies to the shelter. The Shelter is located at 2900 East Old Marathon Hwy.

Adopting a friend

This includes the animals vaccinations, microchip, city registration tag and spay/neutering when they are ready or old enough.

Watch for our $50 Adoption Specials each week in the Alpine Avalanche, Big Bend Sentinel, and monthly in the Big Bend Gazette; also, Alpine Animal Services and AHS host an Adoption Day each month when any pet in the shelter can be adopted for only $50--a $200 plus bargain.
