"Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in the entire world is more grateful for your kindness than mine. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. After all, you have your job, your friends, and your entertainment. I only have you."
The Alpine Humane Society of Brewster County, Texas began operation on
October 26, 1982 in response to an article in the October 14, 1982 issue of the
Alpine Avalanche (click to see the article) concerning the dreadful conditions at the so-called
shelter which was located near the old city dump. The purpose of the
Humane Society is to shelter homeless and abused animals, operate a
progressive adoption program, investigate abuse cases, and encourage the
spay/neutering of animals in order to control overpopulation.
In addition to membership dues, donations and fund raising events, AHS is supported by interest from a more than $1 million trust established when Dr. Lois Helen Cole left her entire estate to the Humane Society in 1996. As specified by Dr. Cole in her will, only the interest from that trust fund is accessible to AHS. In 2012, AHS donated more than $50,000 to the operation of the Alpine Animal Shelter, including veterinary fees in Brewster County, shelter supplies, food for the animals and outside kennels. AHS volunteers also provide more than 1,000 hours of their time yearly to the shelter animals, including everything from cleaning up poop to walking and socializing the animals.
Hundreds of animals a year pass through the shelter gates. The shelter is usually at capacity with approximately 15-25 dogs and 6-12 cats awaiting homes. The new (2011) shelter was built and is operated by the City of Alpine. Both Alpine Animal Services and the Alpine Humane Society work together relocating abandoned and/or abused animals into new homes. The new shelter is located at East Old Marathon Highway.
Current 2013 AHS Board of Directors:
Ann Moore, President
