The Cherokee Humane Society, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) very limited in-take shelter whose mission is to reduce the number of unwanted and abused animals in Cherokee County, AL through spay/neuter, rehoming, and adoption programs.

We rely heavily on public donations to operate.

Please today and help us save more lives.

Come see us at the Adoption Center complex located at 5015 Alabama Highway 9 in Cedar Bluff, AL.

Be ready to be greeted by playful kittens at the front door or by a family of tail-wagging dogs at the back gate.

Our animals are healthy, well cared for, and loved. And they are ready to give that love back in a forever home – maybe yours!

Our hours of operation -


Monday , Wednesday & Friday: 10 am - 12 pm,1 pm - 4 pm

Saturday: By Appointment Only

If you are ready to take some love, it is fun, easy and we are right here to help. First, take a look at the animals we currently have available or call us at 256-779-7159 to set up a tour of our facility by one of our wonderful Volunteers so you can meet your future pet one-on-one. 

Next, you will need to complete an Adoption Application.

The adoption fee for each animal is $85 for cats/kittens, $175.00 -$200 for puppies, $125 - $175 for Adult dogs* (purebreds $200.00), and covers the following:

•    First set of shots (including rabies) and worming

Note: Some of our older dog rescues, special need dogs looking for homes may be $75.00; we really need to place these loving animals that deserve a new chance in a loving home!
