Paws of the Week: April 27th – May 4th


(CBS42 Community) – Our weekly “Paws of the Week” segment always highlights dogs and cats who have lived at the Greater Birmingham Humane Society the longest amount of time, or have special needs and are have trouble finding homes. This week, please help us find Bailey, Angus, Miss Carter, and Hunter loving homes!

Remember, if these animals are not ideal for you, you might know someone who is looking for a pet that we feature. Please share this segment with fellow animals lovers.

Featured Dogs:


Angus is a 66-pound coonhound mix. He is 4-years-old and is incredibly sweet. This poor guy is feeling somber these days because he was an owner surrender. When we asked Angus if he would sit and lie down for his interview, he knew exactly what he wanted him to do. Angus does like to chase cats and other small animals so he would fit best with an active family that does not own any cats.Hunter

Hunter is a 1-year-old male terrier mix. He is extremely gentle and docile. When we sat down with him, he rested his head in my lap. This would be a great dog for therapy training. With his darker brindle markings and shy demeanor, Hunter is having a hard time getting adopted. Let’s help him find the perfect home.

Featured Cats:


Bailey is a 12-year-old female with a beautiful muted tortoiseshell coat. She is very loving and gentle. She was declawed on her front paws by her previous owners. For her safety, Bailey would have to be kept as an indoor cat.Miss Carter

Miss Carter is a 3-year-old female. She is 10 pounds and sports a beautiful yellow tabby coat. She is very friendly and loves other cats. Miss Carter has been waiting in the shelter for over a month and can’t wait to go home for her new family!
