Birmingham: Pets Available For Adoption At Area Shelters

Want to add a furry ball of four-legged love and affection to your family? Look no further than these Birmingham animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Many pound animals are still looking for their forever home and shelters are still working to place pets with families.

Across Alabama, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Alabama Animal Adoption Society, where Scootch the dog is waiting patiently, or another local rescue center. If you aren't sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.

Click on any listing for more information or to start the adoption process.
