Two by Two Rescue-Willow

The Animal League of Birmingham’s latest project is Willow from Two by Two Rescue. This rescue is a small no-kill 501 C 3 non profit who believes all dogs have value regardless of breed, age, health or size. With this philosophy, they do not euthanize due to space, breed or medical expense. In June, they trapped a young female dog in Leeds, AL. She was in horrible condition; totally hairless from mange and malnourished. Due to her condition, her breed could not be determined. Her care is ongoing since her mange is advanced. In the future, she will need to be spayed and have surgery on her eye due to a prolapsing gland. Though Two by Two Rescue could provide some funds to help Willow, they could not cover all the expenses needed for her medical treatment. During our July meeting, we voted to give funds to help Willow’s ongoing care. Please consider donating to The Animal League of Birmingham or participating in our upcoming event Paws for the Cause 5K, 1 Mile, and Fun Run. All proceeds will go towards helping the Shelby County Humane Society and pups like Willow.

After a long, hard winter, Birmingham deserves to cool off.

The Animal League of Birmingham is going to help the city do just that — and help area animal rescues at the same time — with a Big Ice Cream Festival.ALB Ice Cream Poster

The event is planned for Saturday, June 7, from noon until 4:30 p.m. at Avondale Brewing Company, 201 41st St. South, in Birmingham. Tickets are $10 in advance for adults and $15 at the door; and $5 for children. Advance tickets may be purchased through the Eventbrite website at, or from any Animal League member. All proceeds will benefit the Animal League of Birmingham, which raises funds to provide grants to area rescue groups.

The day will be filled with music, food, activities, contests — and lots of ice cream, of course. Competitions include ice cream eating and ice cream making. Children can even get into the act through a craft stick design contest.

This is the first year for the Big Ice Cream Festival, and Animal League board members say they plan to make this an annual fundraising event.

“The Animal League of Birmingham is thrilled to present our inaugural Birmingham’s Big Ice Cream Festival,” said Sandra Varello, president of the Animal League of Birmingham. “Families can bring their dogs to this pet-friendly event and support other pets who are in need.”

The Animal League of Birmingham was established in 2010. Since then, the organization has contributed more than $30,000 to area nonprofit animal rescue groups.
