Local Spotlight: Wiregrass Humane Society

Wiregrass Humane Society

When you adopt an animal, you’re giving him or her the chance at a brand new life. You’re also going to get a whole lot of love and companionship from a grateful cat or dog. At Carriage House Apartments, we support adopting rescue animals—and we allow our residents to have up to two pets (with breed restrictions). Once you get our approval, you can head over the Wiregrass Humane Society and find the perfect pup or kitty. Here’s more on this lifesaving local organization—and why it’s so crucial to adopt rescues.

What is the Wiregrass Humane Society?

The Wiregrass Humane Society is a long-lasting local institution. They’re dedicated to finding homes for cats and dogs who need them! Not only do they house these sweet pets, but they help with their medical care.

They also rely on donations—and purchases from their thrift shop—to stay afloat. Even if you already have pets—or you simply want to support an important organization—you can donate money or items for them to sell at their shop! You can also visit their thrift shop and buy something that will help fund the shelter!

Why is adopting so important?

So many loving pets miss out on finding their fur-ever families. Even though they’re ready to go a happy home, they may spend months or years stuck in a shelter. Though the Wiregrass Humane Society takes amazing care of its animals, pets want nothing more than a home with a family of their own. Not to mention, when you rescue a cat or dog, room opens up in the shelter. That means that adopting one pet can mean a chance at a new life for another animal too!

Even if you like certain breeds or need pets that fit into your lifestyle, the Wiregrass Humane Society can help match you up to the kind of cat or dog you want. You’d be surprised how many purebreds are in shelters or even breed-specific animal rescues.

And above all, when you adopt, you are making a big difference in the life of animal who will love you forever.
