Organization Profile

Greater Birmingham Humane Society


The Greater Birmingham Humane Society's mission is to promote the humane treatment of animals and people through education, advocacy, and services. The GBHS was founded in 1883, is the largest and oldest humane society in Alabama. Over the course of our history we have witnessed the changes in our community and yet have never left the original mission of Dr. Phillips "to promote respect for life through education and prevention of cruelty to animals and people". We receive no city, county, state, or federal tax dollars for our work. We are funded by generous donors in our community and abroad. Volunteer orientation sessions held each month by appointment only.
