Our "Ready for Adoption" Kitties Need New Beds!
Dr. Foster and Smith is having a sale on the Cozy Cushion® cat beds we need for our cats ready for adoption! They are only $14.99 each during the sale. We need a total of 30 beds to keep our kitties at PetSmart comfy and cozy while they wait to be chosen by their new families. If you can donate one or several we would be very appreciative! Please go to the Dr. Foster and Smith Cozy Cushion® for Cats sale page. Drs. Foster and Smith gift certificates are also available!
Cozy Cushion® cat bed works like an electric blanket without the electricity! Patterned on the front, with coordinating solid fabric on the back, this pad features a core layer of thermo-reflective material that uses your cat's own body heat to warm the entire cushion - no cords or electricity costs! Tan Leopard color please.
Have You Adopted From Us?
The Mobile SPCA follows up with the families who adopt our dogs and cats to make sure all is going well and help deal with any problems they may be having. We LOVE to get updates and photos on our Facebook page, not only because it helps our staff but because our friends and supporters enjoy seeing them as well.
If you have adopted from us this year you recently received a "How is your new pet doing?" email with information about training, heartworms, fleas and a request for an update from you. Our staff member, Jan Bailey, is now calling everyone that has not responded. If you have not yet been contacted or posted yourself on our Facebook page or emailed or called in an update, would you take a moment and let us know how your new pet is doing? Please call 633-3531 or email Janine
. If you post on Facebook your post will appear under "Visitor Posts". Thank you!
PetSmart Cat Cleaners Needed!
We need a couple dedicated volunteers to clean the cats at PetSmart on Monday and Thursday. You will spend 1 to 2 hours in the cat room getting our kitties clean and smelling sweet. It's not a hard job but its one that has to be done every Monday and Thursday. We place a lot of cats through PetSmart and could not do it without our dedicated band of cat cleaners! Please call Krisha at 599-2717, email Krisha
or call the office at 633-3531 if you can help.
Store Keeper Needed
The Second Chance Resale Shop is looking for a temporary storekeeper
for every other Friday from 10am-2:30pm. You need experience in handling money and a willingness to chat with our shoppers! If you are interested please fill out a volunteer application so we'll have your contact information. If you have filled out an application in the last couple years just email Peggy
and let her know you are interested and we will pull up your old application.
Do you know what sells well in our Second Chance Resale Shop and the Giant Rummage Sale? JEWELRY - costume, real stuff, homemade, you name it! We can even sell your broken jewelry, single earrings and out of style stuff that you think no one wants. Please take some time to clean out your jewelry box/drawer while you are watching TV tonight and donate your discards to the Mobile SPCA. You can help the animals without even leaving your sofa!

Puppy Season Means Newspaper
It's that time of year - yes puppy season! And we need newspaper desperately. If you can, please remove the circulars - that are not absorbent - we would really appreciate it. We also need volunteers to flatten out the paper so if you can swing by for an hours or so we would be grateful for that as well!
