Welcome to S.H.A.C.

Safe Harbor Animal Coalition (S.H.A.C.) is a volunteer-run, donor-funded animal welfare organization dedicated to the humane care of homeless and abandoned cats and dogs in Baldwin County, Alabama.

Our mission is to reduce and control the overpopulation of homeless cats and dogs through spay, neuter, vaccinating, Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return, and cat colony management, while providing low-cost veterinary services to our partner nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations. In addition, S.H.A.C. funds directly support animal education and training in order to create healthy and empowered communities.

We Make the Biggest Impact by Helping the People Who Help Animals

Through our donor-established and funded animal medical clinic, S.H.A.C. provides low-cost veterinary services to local partner nonprofit organizations, supporting them in their spay/neuter and TNVR efforts. We believe that by educating fellow citizens about proven solutions to animal overpopulation issues, as well as teaching best practices around responsible and humane pet ownership, we can help empower our communities to humanely and effectively deal with animal issues.
