THE MOBILE SPCA IS AN ADOPTION GUARANTEE HUMANE SOCIETY

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.


Foster Homes Needed!

As you know, the Mobile SPCA has an active transport program with responsible rescues up north, and because of these life-saving trips, countless Alabama puppies and dogs have escaped certain death or neglect and found loving, forever homes in northern states. But these transports take a massive amount of coordination, and it all starts with taking puppies and older dogs from municipal shelters or the public and caring for them safely until transport time. And just like all rescue groups with adoption centers, there are never enough kennels to help every pooch that needs us. That's where YOU come in. A short-term foster of a local dog will ensure that their lives ahead will be better than what they have here. Can you help? You can choose a pup or older dog that fits in with your home and resident pets, and in doing so you will truly have saved a life. If you'd like to try out fostering, we'd love to have you. Please complete a foster application and we can make it happen! Our kennels are over-flowing with puppies right now, and we want to help even more. Each one is so deserving. THANK YOU!!

Spay-ghetti Dinner March 8
The Mobile SPCA will host its tenth annual Spay-ghetti Dinner Thursday, March 8, 2017 at Our Savior Catholic Church, 1801 Cody Road. All proceeds will benefit the Mobile SPCA’s spay-neuter program. We will have our Grand Prize Raffle, regular raffle, silent auction items, toe-tapping live music and delicious dinner and dessert. Tickets are still just $10 each. You will enjoy our famous homemade meat or vegetarian sauce, pasta, salad, garlic bread, tea and delicious homemade desserts. We will start serving at 5pm. You can dine in or take out. Tickets can be purchased at the Mobile SPCA office, online at MobileSPCA.org and at the door. For more information call 251-633-3531.

  • 35 gallons meat sauce
  • 49 home-baked desserts

Last year we spayed, neutered or assisted with over 2,000 surgeries in Mobile County! Imagine how many unwanted litters of kittens and puppies there would have been without this life-saving program. Please, help us alter at least 3,000 in 2018. If you can make a food donation, please contact Janine.


Raffle Items needed! 

Can you donate a prize, basket, home baked item? Did you get a gift card for the holidays you just will never use? Do you have a business that would donate one? Gift cards for practically anything - food, services, supplies - are excellent raffle items! 

We need a lot of prizes to make this event successful. Please contact Jody if you can help! 


So far we have gift cards from Texas Roadhouse, Walmart Gift, Brick & Spoon, Starbucks,  PetSmart, Walmart,  Domino’s, Lowes, Amazon and Carrabbas. We also have a Handmade Wooden Serving Tray with Wooden Rolling Pin,  Four Handmade Rag Rugs by Abigail Reeves and a hand painted box basket by Abigail Reeves. A list of donated raffle items will be posted in the Howler, on our website and on Facebook.

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.
