Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter



Metro Animal Shelter is a 501c3 non-profit organization that opened its doors in July, 1994.  Our mission is to provide resources, programs, and information needed to build a more humane community that values animals and promotes compassion and kindness towards them, embraces responsible pet ownership, and promotes the animal/human bond.  We hope to inspire community involvement in animal welfare and motivate the public to embrace responsible lifelong pet ownership.
