About Support Paws Alabama

Great Pyrenees Puppy Angel

Support Paws was started by Shannon and Michael to offer support to rescues and shelters that are caring for sick, injured, abused, pregnant, neglected, unwanted and/or displaced animals.

We began fostering for Shelby County Humane Society in Columbiana, Alabama in 2014 and have enjoyed every animal that we have come in contact with and want to take that extra step to reach more people in an effort to slow down pet overpopulation, encourage people to foster and simply make the pet that has been surrendered more comfortable while staying in a rescue/shelter environment. We do understand, though, that there are cases where abused animals need to be placed in a shelter or rescue for their own safety and in those cases we would rather have the pet in a shelter rather than dropped off on the street or chained and left out in the elements.

Support Paws is a 501 C(3) non-profit, no kill, all-volunteer group of animal lovers who have observed a great need in our community to assist rescues, shelters, and fosters to provide medical care, comfort and love for the unwanted, homeless, neglected and abused animals. We give temporary help to humans who are in need of pet supplies and food for their four legged family members so that they do not have to permanently lose a companion over a temporary situation. We offer support and on a limited basis can be a safe haven along the route to their final destination which is their fur-ever home.
