Adoption Preparation – Greater Birmingham Humane Society

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) would like to find a home for every animal we receive. However, you should be aware that adoption from our facilities may not be possible even for healthy, friendly, well-behaved pets.

A year after authorities raided a Birmingham animal shelter and adoption service, its former owner was found guilty of animal cruelty charges.

Despite the increased number of animal adoptions, less expensive spaying and neutering options available and an increase in rescue groups willing to take unwanted animals, the euthanasia rates have changed little in the Birmingham metro area over the past several years.

This one named Julie is a couple years old now. She is being fostered in Birmingham AL. She was found on a grocery store parking lot looking for bugs to eat. She loves to be pet and snuggle. She talks to you when she wakes in the morning and is hungry. (not crying, but talks- it is so cute). Julie is up-to-date on all shots including rabies and has been spayed. She likes other kitties. She plays and plays. She was so shy when I first got her, she has definitely come out of her shell and will make a wonderful companion. She will talk to you if you spend enough time with her. She will lay down to have her belly rubbed and curl up in your lap to fall asleep. She loves to snugle on the bed with you. She is a small cat. , but will come around eventually if someone shows patience towards her. She has come around for me. It took a year for her to be my best friend. She does still hide on occasion. But mostly when others are in our home. But she talks to me and snuggles with me.
