Description

***Due to health concerns and to comply with recommendations to not host large events, Paws for the Cause 2020 (scheduled for April 4th) is being postponed.  The new date is Saturday, October 24th at Veteran's Park.

Your registration will automatically carry over to this new date.  If you are unable to attend and would like to discuss your registration options, email bestfriends@shelbyhumane.org.

Shelby Humane is currently closed to the public. This means intake numbers may continue, but their adoption rate does not.  Now more than ever, the shelter needs financial support to care for the hundreds of pets in their care and foster homes to provide temporary housing.  To make donations or sign up to be a foster parent, visit shelbyhumane.org.  

Follow on Facebook for updates or for details on private adoption appointments. There are 25 dogs needing immediate adoption/foster - and the adoption is fee-waived!

Thank you for your support! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Shelby Humane is the only open-admission animal shelter in Shelby County.  We care for over 5,000 lost, homeless & unwanted pets each year.  We rely on fundraisers such as Paws for the Cause to perform our life-saving mission. 

Held Saturday, October 24th  - Paws for the Cause is a certified 5k off-road cross-country race through the beautiful Veterans Park in Hoover.  The course takes you on a path through the park around the lake and through tree-lined trails surrounding the park.  The 5k is dog-friendly (well-behaved dogs on leash).

NEW: The Tail Waggin' Trek was a hit last year and return for 2020!  The Tail Waggin' Trek is a 1-mile "obstacle" course run for individuals or teams and fun for adults, kids & dogs!  All obstacles are family-friendly and either silly fun animal-themed challenges suitable for all ages and those that can walk a mile.
