Our 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.
Our 500th dog is headed north!
Congratulations Lemon Grass!
This gorgeous dog has the honor of representing 499 dogs who preceded him from the Mobile SPCA to new homes up north via the PetSmart Charities® Rescue Waggin'! We are so proud of our partnership with this wonderful group that does so much for our sweet Southern pooches.
2015 Great Start Greyhound Award
Presented to the Mobile SPCA for sprinting out of the gate to join the Rescue Waggin' program.
Mobile SPCA was so surprised to receive the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin' 2015 Great Start Greyhound Award at this year's Summit: "Mobile SPCA's shelter's staff members were responsive to the Rescue Waggin' program from even before they joined the program! They implemented sweeping changes to qualify for the program, working with the city and county shelters to improve the whole community. This organization reacted quickly to all information requests and they have hit the ground running on Rescue Waggin' transports. Our 2015 Great Start Greyhound Award is presented to Mobile SPCA in Mobile, Alabama. Congratulations!"
PetSmart Adoption Weekend August 15!
Set up at 9; adoption starts at 10
We need volunteers to set up, work the adoption and break down around 2:30. Please let me know if you can help. We will only bring as many dogs as we have volunteers so it is imperative that you let me know you are coming. We don't want anyone to come and not have something to do because they probably won't come the next time nor do we want more dogs than the volunteers can handle.
Rummage Drive Underway
Now through August 29!
Our rummage staff and volunteers are just waiting to get their hands on your stuff! Now through August 29 we are asking for lots and lots of rummage for the fall sale October 9 and 10. It seems like a long way off but the staff needs time to sort and price all of the great donations so please bring your donations in now. If you have donations of furniture, please wait until close to the sale as space is at a premium around here with the dog assessments and transports!
Volunteer and needs wish list!
Please call the office, email janine or come by if you can help.
None of these are hard jobs and someone will be with you to show you everything you need to know!
WANT TO HELP? There are numerous opportunities for volunteers here at the shelter. Please complete the online volunteer application or come by the office and fill one out here. Once we have your email address we will update you weekly with volunteer opportunities through our e-newsletter the Howler. When you see an opportunity you would like to help with, simply email the contact listed and let the person in charge know you are coming. If you would like to come help at the shelter - cleaning cages, opening newspaper, walking dogs, playing with cats, bathing dogs, etc. - we would love to have the help. Please come by the office and we will introduce you to the staff member that you will be working with. We look forward to meeting you soon. And remember you can always email Janine for more information.
