Shelby Humane Society is the only open-admission animal shelter in Shelby County.  We care for over 5,000 lost, homeless & unwanted pets each year.  We rely on fundraisers such as Paws for the Cause to perform our life-saving mission. 

Held Saturday, March 9th  - Paws for the Cause is a certified 5k off-road cross-country race through the beautiful Veterans Park in Hoover.  The course takes you on a path through the park around the lake and through tree-lined trails surrounding the park.

NEW THIS YEAR: The Tail Waggin' Trek is a 1-mile "obstacle" course run for individuals or teams and fun for adults, kids & dogs!  All obstacles are family-friendly and either silly fun animal-themed challenges suitable for all ages and those that can walk a mile.
