ADOPT MAPLE AND DUSTY FOR ONLY $50 UNTIL JUNE 2ND

There are about 25 dogs in the shelter, ranging from labs, pits, shepherds, peewees to puppies. A large variety of good previously owned dogs in need of good homes. Some were abandoned, some turned in by owners who could no longer care for them and some found as strays. If you recently lost your dog or cat—please check the shelter to see if he/she might be there. Maple is one of those dogs. 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. Dusty is another one of those dogs, a 2 yr old male Australian Shepherd mix. He gets along with people and other dogs, walks well on a leash and loves attention. Beautiful black and tan coat.

Maple and Dusty can be adopted for only $50 until June 2nd (normal adoption fee is $100 for all animals in the shelter and $50 for cats in the AHS Thrift Store).

Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccines, city registration tag, and a microchip—a $200 plus BARGAIN!!

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 ONYX OR FRANCIE FOR ONLY $50 UNTIL MAY 28TH

Onyx had a great start in life with a loving family who simply ran into financial trouble and couldn't afford to keep him. He gets along happily with dogs, cats and kids, and for his age is pretty great at leash walking, though he's ready to learn more. This 9-month-old can sit and shake too, and is ready to impress his new family with his smarts as well as his affection. Onyx is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Adoption fee includes city microchip.

Francie is a really fun little firecracker of a pup. Maybe we shouldn't be surprised but she and Elsa (her shelter-mate, also a heeler mix) both really want to wear the shelter crown. What advantage Elsa has in age and size, Francie challenges in cleverness. She is a dog with a big personality and a great sense of self. If you're looking for a dog whose eyes light up for adventure, she's your girl! Francie is about 9 months old. and can be adopted until May 28th for only $50.

Sunday, May 22, 3-5 pm at Kokernot Park (near the golf course). David Sleeper will present “CONSCIOUS CANINE WORKSHOP.” Free workshop ($100 value). Bring your own chair. Kids & leashed dogs welcome. Bottled water provided. Donations accepted but not required.

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.
