Review for Humane Society Of Shelby County, Columbiana, AL, USA
Shelby Humane Society is a wonderful organization to support and work with! As a professional in the non-profit world, I am constantly impressed by SHS's professional and positive reputation in the community. Because of this reputation, I chose to become a volunteer and have completed a transport to New Hampshire - one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! The staff were extremely helpful in preparing me for the trip so I would know what to expect and I can't wait to do another. After the tornadoes that struck Tuscaloosa, AL this spring, SHS put together transport trips to NH with dogs they already had at the shelter (who were having trouble finding homes), in order to make room for the displaced pets from Tuscaloosa. Many families were able to find their pets as a result!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
through the transportation of dogs to New England so that they would find homes quickly and not be euthanized due to overpopulation at the shelter.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
get more volunteers and spread the word about Shelby Humane Society so more adoptions take place within the county.
