About AAHS

Our Mission

AAHS is a volunteer-powered nonprofit dedicated to rescuing homeless, neglected, and abandoned animals from certain euthanasia and finding them loving forever homes. We educate the community and all pet parents on responsible pet parenting, including the importance of spay and neuter, obedience training, and good nutrition.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all animals are spayed and neutered and where all pets have responsible families and loving homes.

Our Philosophy

Successful adoptions depend on multiple and strong relationships with committed volunteers, local veterinarians, and loving families. Through these relationships we are able to rescue  animals in our community, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes.

Our History

Founded in April 1986 as PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Society), the organization changed its name to the Andalusia Area Humane Society (AAHS) in August 1987.

AAHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all-volunteer humane society.  Our funding comes from your tax-deductible contributions, grants, memberships, and fundraising events and all funds are used in Covington County to benefit ‘at risk’ pets.
