Greater Birmingham Humane Society resumes dog adoptions after canine flu

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society had to halt dog adoptions for several weeks this summer due to an outbreak of dog flu, but dog adoptions resumed today and there was a line of people waiting to adopt when the shelter opened at noon.

“We had a line at the door,” said Kate Hollingsworth, director of engagement for the Greater Birmingham Humane Sociey.

Dog adoptions were temporarily halted at the end of July.

“We quarantined all the dogs,” Hollingsworth said. “We are out of quarantine. We are open for adoption.

Photos of all the dogs available for adoption can be found on the shelter’s website, she said.

Cat adoptions continued as usual throughout the summer.

The shelter offers a $15 adoption fee for canine and feline adoptions.
