Give a Wag! Gives to Dothan Shelters

The Wiregrass Humane Society is doing their best to help the dogs of Dothan! This wonderful animal shelter was established in 1991 and is located in the heart of Dothan, Alabama. The facility houses over 130 animals that are available for adoption to the general public. The vast majority of the animals have been picked up by the City of Dothan Animal Control who rescue abandoned, neglected and abused animals. This is a non-profit organization which relies heavily on donations and volunteers. They also have a thrift shop that helps towards the cost of the animals. They have an adoption service that currently sees that the majority of the dogs are re-homed.

The Dothan Police Department Dothan Animal Shelter operates around the Houston area and serves to protect neglected, abused and homeless animals. It has saved close to 2,600 animals and reports a lower euthanasia rate of 23%. The home currently gathers funds for medicines and for the upkeep of the shelter. They hold an annual event called "Bark in the Park" in Dothan. They re-homes over 70% of the animals that come through their doors, and they are working to make this number even more impressive.

The City of Dothan Animal Shelter from Animal Control is another group that seeks to help dogs on the streets. They re-home a ton of animals that are neglected, abused or homeless. They also provide programs to educate people on the responsibilities of owning a dog. This small shelter also has animal adoption events that they put on periodically.
