Hoof or Paw is a 501 (c)(3) domestic not for profit corporation animal welfare organization located just outside Hamilton, AL city limits in the Pikeville community. HoP is a no kill facility that houses strays and rescues providing them with vaccinations, spays/neuters, needed medical care and a good bill of health from a licensed veterinarian. We will then place them up for adoption to the public, our pets can be seen on a number of different sites, such as Adopt-a-pet.com, Petco Foundation, PetSmart Charities, Pet Harbor, Autotrader, and Found Animals Foundation, Hallmark Channel, Mutual Rescue, Oodle.com Classifieds, Overstock.com, PEDIGREE Rescue Doodles, Petmate, The Shelter Pet Project, ZiNG.com . In the event we are not able to place them in a home, we have a network of other rescue organizations throughout the state and surrounding areas we work with to transfer our animals to other no-kill rescue organizations located in higher demand areas for pets to adopt. Our primary northern partners are Delaware SPCA, which we connect to using the help of The Greater Birmingham Humane Society, and Happy Life Animal Rescue in New York.
We also offer reduced cost veterinary service certificates to cover microchipping, spay/neuter procedures, and/or vaccinations that pet owners may purchase with a donation equal to the cost of service they need for their pet. You can find more on this program under Discount Services and Procedures. This program was developed to help promote responsible pet ownership so you can keep your pet or take care of a new one and reduce the stray and unwanted animals in our area.
Please see our services and goals for a list of our organization's other main objectivities.
