Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter is the only facility for stray animals in Tuscaloosa County, Tuscaloosa City, and Northport. TMAS receives all animals seized by Tuscaloosa County's three local animal control organizations.
You can find a pet for adoption by going to the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter's online pet adoption website and viewing the cats and dogs.
Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter is immediately adjacent to Waste Management on 35th Street.
Monday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter requires an adoption application. If you rent or lease, please consult with your landlord before adopting and work out any restrictions they may impose. They reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone if they believe the potential adopter is unable to meet the needs of the specific animal (examples include, but not limited to: Great Pyrenees in an apartment, a Chihuahua being in a house with young children knowing the dog is shy).
Please allow plenty of time while visiting the shelter to meet the animals, complete the paperwork, and ask questions. It can take 30-45 minutes to complete the process, and it can take longer if it is really busy, which happens frequently. An application can be completed online. They recommend simply clicking on the animal you want to apply for and then click the "Apply" button. This will save you time!
