Prattville/Autauga Humane Society

Our Adoptable Pets List - We usually have lots of nice choices of healthy puppies and kittens. Due to the fact that puppies and kittens find homes quickly we do not always have a chance to get them listed on Petfinder. If you are interested in adopting a puppy or kitten please call the shelter to find out about availability or, better yet, come see for yourself by visiting our shelter.

Who We Are

The Prattville/Autauga Humane Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing animal cruelty and providing a temporary home for abandoned and abused animals. Our shelter is run by a small, dedicated staff who depend heavily on the loving care and hard work of our volunteers. We invite you to join us. Together we can make a difference! For information contact our shelter at 334-358-2882 or email us directly at autaugahumane@yahoo.com.

We have changed our name from Autauga County Humane Society to Prattville/Autauga Humane Society to more accurately reflect our service area and to recognize the City of Prattville as well as the Autauga County Commission for their financial support with shelter operations. You may see us listed both ways for a while, but we are still the same organization working to benefit the animals in our community. For questions concerning the shelter contact us at autaugahumane@yahoo.com

Adopting a Friend

Applicants are screened to ensure the best possible home for the pet. Adoption fees are $120 for dogs and $80 for cats. This helps to defray the cost of housing, feeding, and caring for these helpless animals and includes vaccinations and discounted spaying or neutering your adopted pet at a participating veterinary clinic. All pets adopted from our shelter who are old enough will be spayed or neutered prior to going home with their new family. Spaying/neutering is mandatory and required by law. Our adoption fees cover a microchip, microchip registration, discounted spay/neuter, deworming, vaccinations (as age and law requires), 30 days of insurance (as requirements met), and a courtesy vet exam at participating offices. .

Shelter Wish List

The Prattville/Autauga Humane Society has an ongoing need for dog food. The dog food does not have to be a brand name but Pedigree brand is very much appreciated, because feeding the animals the same brand as much as possible is better for their health. You may drop off your donations at our shelter on Rueben Road or at any of our off-site adoption events. Thanks for your help in getting a meal for our furry friends!

We also use bleach and laundry detergent everyday while cleaning to keep the pets healthy. Two washers and dryers are running all day, everyday, to keep up with the towels and blankets used for bedding and cleaning. While shopping for your family, please pick up an extra bottle of bleach or box of detergent for the shelter. You may drop off your donations at our shelter on Rueben Road or at any of our off-site adoption events.

PAWS

"Pets Are Wonderful Support" (PAWS) is an informal Pet Visitation Program to nursing homes, retirement centers, children's programs, and other facilities. It is sponsored and supported by the Prattville/Autauga Humane Society.

The purpose of PAWS is to bring smiles and laughter to everyday routine, promote physical and emotional well-being, encourage communication, and satisfy the basic human need to physically touch and be touched.

Pets can make us healthier, happier, live longer, and recover more quickly from illness. They can lower blood pressure, lower stress levels, and increase self-esteem.

Pets give unconditional love and acceptance, comfort and cheer, break through barriers that people cannot, and provide motivation, activity, organization, and purpose to the lives of those who love them.

Membership in PAWS is open to anyone, with or without a personal pet. Pets do not have to be registered or obedience schooled, but they must be healthy, up-to-date on shots, well groomed, affectionate, able to get along well with other pets and all people, and controlled by the handler. Pets may include dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets, potbellied pigs, and miniature horses, as long as they meet health and temperament standards.

Routine visits are the first and third Saturdays of each month. We also visit elementary school programs and other special events throughout the year.

The program enables participants to experience the positive results of the age-old bond between people and pets and the reward of the excitement and love generated in the lives of those who visit and those who are visited.

If you are interested in volunteering for this program, contact our shelter at 334-358-2882
