Humane Society of Etowah County
1700 Chestnut St.
The HSEC, founded in l973, is the only animal shelter in the Etowah County and provides housing for approximately 7,000 animals yearly. We cooperate with area Animal Control Officers in investigations, court appearances, etc., in order to fulfill service agreements that we have with the various governments in this area. Our primary goal in two-fold: to reduce irresponsible breeding and to enhance public awareness of the tragedy of pet over-population. We are members of the HSUS, AHA, the Alabama Animal Control Association, and the Alabama Humane Federation.
