Volunteers Needed!


Now that school is almost out and students have fulfilled their mandatory "public service hour" requirements, we are in need of volunteers! We need volunteers to:

  • Socialize puppies
  • Help kennel staff care for puppies
  • Help kennel staff care for cats
  • Open newspaper for puppies
  • Bottle feeders for kittens
  • Foster homes for puppies

The 2018 Volunteer Dinner was a great success!
We honored our top five volunteers for their many, many hours of service: Roy Blount - 830 hours; Jan Bailey - 530 hours; Jamie Hinton - 359 hours; Judy Rayfield - 350 hours; and, Marjie Irby - 306 hours. Please be sure to report your volunteer hours to Kimberly Wilson. Volunteers hours are instrumental in getting grants for many of our projects so please report your hours! Also honored were Ica and Joe Miller for their 45 years of service to the Mobile SPCA! Ica received a bouquet of flowers and they will be honored with a fence memorial plaque. Pictured below is Ica with her flowers, properly cat proofed! 
Mr. Roy, the Can Man, crushed and recycled 144 giant black bags of aluminum cans, or 1,864 pounds of aluminum, netting $1,156 for cans donated from October through March. His goal for March through October of this year is 201 bags of cans! His total haul for the year was $2595! Please don’t forget to bring Mr. Roy your aluminum cans so he can reach his new goal!
We have applied for several grants this year to help us with some of our own going projects including the PetSmart Charities Shelter Improvement Grant to help us purchase a commercial washer and dryer. Right now, we have 8 washers and 8 dryers running 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sadly, these machines do not last long and are not covered under the manufacturers warranties because they are being used commercially instead of in a home. We go through several new machines a year and always use donated machines until they are no longer functioning. The PetSmart Charities SNAP Program Grant was even more successful than last year. In the first three weeks we gave out 1234 vouchers for a total of $78,730. While the grant was only for $75,000 we know that some of the vouchers will expire before they have been used. We are maintaining a waiting list and offering other assistance for altering pets. So far, we have assisted in over 750 surgeries through this grant. Along with these two grants, we have applied for grants from PetSmart Charities and ASPCA to help fund the transport program.
In 2017 intakes of dogs and puppies was 1,304 with 308 adopted locally and 876 transferred. Intakes for cats and kittens was 506 with 430 adopted and 1 transferred. In January through April of 2018 we have intakes of dogs and puppies was 297 with 65 adopted locally and 200 transferred. Intakes for cats and kittens was 147 with 154 adopted and 0 transferred. April 2017 intakes were 140 dogs and puppies and 105 cats and kittens. We maintain a waiting list for both cats and dogs and intake them as space comes available. 
We have joined the Best Friends Network Partners. This Network is made up of hundreds of shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations in all corners of the country, and is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets through collaboration and implementation of effective adoption, spay/neuter and intake prevention programs. We have been asked to be on the steering committee for a new initiative to make Alabama no-kill by 2025. We will have more details as the program progresses.
Thank you to everyone who brought a dish and especially to Ted Taylor for the BBQ! Everything was delicious!

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 2017 he has crushed over 3,000 pounds of aluminum and raised $2,595 — that aluminum means cash to buy supplies for the animals. We also recycle cell phones, old electric cords, Christmas lights, brass, copper, gold and silver.
