About Shelby Humane and the Shelter Partners program


Since November 22, 2006, more than 2,700 Shelby Humane Society canines have found new homes with families in New Hampshire. Shelter Partners moves pets from Shelby County, which is experiencing extreme animal overpopulation, to shelters in states where the success and enforcement animal laws and spay and neuter laws and initiatives limit the number of pets available for adoption. Libby's Haven for Senior Canines helped us establish contacts in New Hampshire, and volunteers drive the dogs 19-23 hours to deliver them to our partnering shelters.

New Hampshire Humane Society, New Hampshire SPCA, the Humane Society for Great Nashua, Cocheco Valley Humane Society and Salem Animal Rescue League welcome Shelby Humane dogs to their New Hampshire facilities where the dog population is considerably less than that of Central Alabama. With rare exception, the dogs and puppies transferred are placed with adoptive families within a few days of becoming available for adoption at our partner shelters. As of August 2009 Shelby Humane also partners with Greater Androscoggin Humane Society in Lewiston, Maine.

Each Shelter Partners trip costs SHS $750-850. For $50, you can sponsor one of the dogs leaving our shelter to go to New Hampshire. We will send you a picture of the dog that benefits from your kindness and any information we have about it. You can sponsor a dog for the Shelter Partners program at www.shelbyhumane.org/transfer2.htm.
