Greater Birmingham Humane Society Charity Profile

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society, founded in 1883, is the largest and oldest humane society in Alabama. Over the course of our history we have witnessed the changes in our community and yet have never left the original mission of Dr. Phillips to promote respect for life through education and prevention of cruelty to animals and people.

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society is an open access humane society, meaning that we will accept any owned animal in need of our services. We are not, however, an animal control agency. There are several such agencies in the Jefferson County area that are funded by local and county tax dollars. While these agencies are funded to care for the stray animal population and to control the risk of rabies in the community, we were established to help care for the unwanted owned animals of the community. To this end, we receive no city, county, state, or federal tax dollars for our work. We are funded by generous donors in our community and abroad.

Greater Birmingham Humane Society Volunteer Information

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society has a variety of volunteer opportunities available for people of all ages.

Greater Birmingham Humane Society Donation Information

Thank you for choosing to support the Greater Birmingham Humane Society! We are a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1883 to serve the pets and people of the Greater Birmingham community. We currently receive no city, state, federal, or United Way funding to subsidize our $1.7 million dollar budget. Throughout our long history we have largely depended on the generosity of the public and foundations to help us meet the community’s needs.
