Non-Profit Animal Rescue

Alabama Rescue Relay

dedicated to the transportation of Alabama shelter dogs, rescue dogs and cats.  Due to the overcrowding of local shelters, these puppies, dogs, and cats would likely never be adopted in Alabama and many would face euthanasia. We arrange transportation to our out-of-state rescue partners where they will find their loving forever families.

MakING a Donation

As a group of compassionate people working on a volunteer-basis, we dedicate our time, funds and resources to rescuing companion animals and giving them the chance to live the life they deserve. All donations we receive are used to fund our weekly rescue missions and provide financial assistance to the shelters for veterinary care, vaccinations, and food. 

Adopting A Pet

Looking to expand your family with the addition of a furry companion. We have a list of many reputable shelters and rescue organizations we work with that are always looking for people who are willing to adopt and save a life.

What we do

Our Services

Rescuing Pets

We organize weekly or biweekly ground and air transportation to bring these companion animals from Alabama to our partner rescue affiliates in the Midwestern and Southern United States. 

Finding Pets a Home

All of the companion animals we transport are guaranteed to be adopted. They are placed with rescues throughout the US, mainly in Florida, where they get spayed or neutered, vaccinations and are cared for until they are adopted. 

What Drives Us

Our Mission

We believe that every animal deserves  the chance to find a forever family. We are a volunteer group of compassionate people dedicated to saving animals from overcrowded Alabama shelters and to inspiring a community where the animal-human bond is celebrated and nurtured.
