The Mobile SPCA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization whose mission is to provide compassionate care, shelter, food, and medical attention to the animals entrusted to us while promoting adoptions, spay and neuter initiatives, responsible pet ownership and community education.

SNAP 2018 - IT'S HERE!!

Now's the time to fix that

Last year the Mobile SPCA received more than $70,000 from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, to fuel a new spay/neuter program in Mobile.  And because of that grant, we were able to offer assistance to 1087 dogs and cats in our area to assure they'll never add to our growing pet population.

And lucky for us, they're doing it again this year!

In 2017 the Mobile SPCA took in 1,810 dogs and cats. We placed 430 cats and 308 dogs locally and transported 876 puppies and adult dogs to shelters in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio. The Mobile SPCA assists with over 1,200 spay/neuter surgeries each year through our $10 off coupon. Additionally, the organization assisted many other pet owners who could not afford the surgery even with $10 off.

"While the transport program is very successful, we know it is just a band-aid on the real problem of unaltered cats and dogs" said Mobile SPCA's Executive Director, Janine Woods. "To help alleviate this breeding problem, again this year, we received a grant from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, to offer spay/neuter assistance to approximately 2,000 pets in 2018. There will be a $20 co-pay for each surgery and the Mobile SPCA will reimburse the participating veterinary clinic the remaining cost of the surgery," Woods added. You must be a resident of the City of Mobile or Mobile County.

"We’re proud to partner with Mobile SPCA once again to help prevent unplanned litters and reduce pet homeless in the Mobile community,” said Kelly Balthazor, regional relationship manager, PetSmart Charities.  “Their results-driven dedication to helping local pets and people in need is a true testament to their commitment and we look forward to seeing the results of this year’s program.”

PetSmart Charities aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness through increased spay and neuter efforts. With the help of animal welfare partners, such as Mobile SPCA, PetSmart Charities has facilitated over 1.7 million spay and neuter surgeries in the U.S. since 2009.

Owners may contact the Mobile SPCA for details not covered on our website or Facebook page. While there are no financial guidelines to who can claim these vouchers, if you are financially able to spay or neuter your pet yourself, please leave the vouchers to other families who may have difficulties providing the surgery to their pets. 

Again, the vouchers are for your own pets only (no rescue groups please).

Thank you to everyone who made SNAP 2017 such a success, and to everyone who will make a difference this year in our mission toward no more unwanted litters!

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:  If you are a resident of the City of Mobile or Mobile County, you are eligible for a SNAP voucher for each of your unaltered pets.  There will be a $20 co-pay for each surgery and the Mobile SPCA will reimburse the participating veterinary clinic the remaining cost of the surgery. 

1.     Vouchers must be picked up at the Mobile SPCA office, 620 Zeigler Circle West, Mobile.  They will not be mailed.  At that time, you will be provided a list of participating veterinarians.
2.     You do not pay the Mobile SPCA your $20 co-pay; that is paid directly to the veterinarian when you take your pet in to be altered.
3.     There is a maximum of three vouchers per family.  This amount may be decreased at any time depending on how many vouchers are being given out and how quickly.
4.     The vouchers are to be used only for OWNED PETS. However, a limited number will be given to help feral cats. This option can be discussed with the office.
5.  When you come to the office to claim your voucher, please bring your pet's rabies certificate with you, along with a driver's license. The office will make copies of both to attach to the voucher to be given to the veterinarian. It is your responsibility to bring your rabies certificate. You can get a copy from your veterinarian. Mobile SPCA staff will not call your veterinarian to get that for you.
6. The vouchers will have an expiration date (undetermined right now). This will ensure they are used in a timely manner and allow the Mobile SPCA to track spending and how much more money is available in the grant.  Call the office if your voucher expires before it is used. We MAY be able to extend it.
7. The vouchers will be provided until they are all gone/until the grant money has been depleted.
8. Vouchers will be issued only during normal office hours: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9 to 5:00; Thursday 9 to noon; Saturday 9 to 3

Thank you for the Automobile Clothes Hanger Rod!

A couple of weeks ago, we asked if any of our friends had a car clothes hanger rod, that we could definitely use it to transport clothing items to our consignment shop. Well, we were surprised with an Amazon order for a very nice rod which unfortunately didn't contain any paperwork on who sent it to us. We definitely would like to thank you in person, so if you could let us know here or at the office, we'd appreciate it very much. It's a very nice sturdy rod and will serve us well!!

My name is Lollipop and I am a young adult looking for my forever home. I'm an extremely energetic dog, but I can also be very loving and affectionate. I like going for walks and getting lots of attention, but I can be calm and quiet. Sometimes I just like to sit with my friends and watch TV. I'm a great dog and I just need someone to give me a chance.Stop by the Mobile SPCA and meet me soon.If you are interested in Irving or any of our cats and dogs please call (251) 633-3531 or complete the online

Don't forget we
recycle for cash!

Please bag up your aluminum and drop it by the office. Our own Mr. Roy crushes all the donated aluminum and bags it up for recycle. In 2014 he has crushed a whopping 3,341 pounds of aluminum and raised $2,461 — that aluminum means cash to buy supplies for the animals. We also recycle cell phones, old electric cords, Christmas lights, brass, copper, gold, silver and ink cartridges.
