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.
