ADOPT DORY OR ANABELLE FOR ONLY FOR ONLY $50 UNTIL MARCH 4TH

Dory is a 10-month old jack russell terrier - bassett hound mix. She arrived at the shelter on Feb 4 very fearful and timid. We think she may have had some kind of trauma, and she requires an adopter who understands the patient but rewarding work required to help fearful dogs live a normal life. Dory looks forward to a second chance at a life in which she's much loved and treated like a queen. As Pet of the Week, Dory can be adopted for half-price ($50) until March 4th.

Anabelle is a big, beautiful cat with exquisite markings. While initially shy, if pulled out of her kitty bed, she loves to be held. She will sit calmly and happily on your lap as long as you allow her to sit with you. Anabelle is great with children, and while she doesn't particularly care for other cats but does live with them peacefully at the Thrift Store. Mostly, she would love to be your lap cat. Annabelle will be Pet of the Week until March 4th.

ADOPT GOOSE OR BENDER FOR ONLY FOR ONLY $50 UNTIL FEB. 25TH

Goose is a 1.5-year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. He has that very distinct reverse-ridge of hair along his back. He is a lovely and sweet large dog of 55 pounds and is wonderful with both kids and cats. He has been a family pet for most of his life already, but had to be surrendered when the family moved into housing without any yard space for him. Goose loves to run and play with other dogs, and is very easy going with people too. As Pet of the Week, he can be adopted for half price ($50) until February 25th.

Bender is an 8-9 month old male kitten, and as you can see, he is CUTE! Bender has longish hair, gorgeous eyes, is super playful, and is very well socialized. He was picked up with his brothers as a tiny stray kitten almost 5 whole months ago! We’ve had a great run of cat adoptions recently, but Bender is still waiting. As Pet of the Week, he can be adopted for half price ($50) until February 25th. We hope this is his last week in the shelter!

Shelter animal adoption fees include spay/neuter, all vaccines, city registration tag, and a microchip. Best of all, adopting from the shelter rescues a homeless pet from our community and provides them the family that they need!

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.
