Established in late 2019, Safe Harbor Animal Coalition (SHAC) is a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals and people in South Baldwin County, AL. SHAC is currently an all-volunteer group focused on getting homeless animals adopted into loving, forever homes and establishing a robust Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) Program in South Baldwin County. Through TNR, fostering and sheltering adoptable pets and pet adoption activities, SHAC provides humane solutions to animal overpopulation and potential conflicts between animals and the community. SHAC is a resource for dedicated animal caregivers, advocates, other nonprofit groups and volunteers driving change and accelerating protections for animals in coastal Alabama.
Officially, SHAC is a new nonprofit organization. But, we have actually emerged from three separate but aligned Animal Care and Control Programs. The Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) was formed in June 2017. Between June 2017 and November 2019, OBACCP TNR’d 500 cats, as well as facilitated the adoption of 225 fully vetted cats and 6 fully vetted dogs. The Gulf Shores Animal Care and Control Program (GSACCP) was formed in August 2018 with support from the OBACCP. Between June 2017 and November 2019, GSACCP TNR’d 300 cats. The Foley Animal Care and Control Program (FACCP) was formed in August 2019. Between August and November 2019, FACCP TNR’d 150 cats, facilitated the adoption of 30 fully vetted cats and reunited 4 dogs with their families.
