Animal Cruelty

PET OF THE WEEK

 



My name is Cheryl and while I admit I can be grumpy at times, when I learn to trust you I will beg to be petted and lick your hand.  I'm nine years old and I was adopted from the SPCA when I was a kitten. When my owner died someone  brought me back to the SPCA and I have just been aching to get to my new "furever" home ever since. When I first arrived I really had to show the people at the SPCA who was boss but now I have chilled out and they can give me love and kisses. I don't like other cats too much but I can tolerate those slobbering dogs pretty well. I am independent and won't miss you much when you are gone but I'll climb on the couch with you when you get home and let you rub my ears and pet and brush me. I am a beautiful tuxedo kitty and my best feature is the tiny white tip and the end of my long black tail. Won't you give this middle-aged lady a home? If you are interested in Cheryl or any of our grumpy and lovey 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.

Cruelty to animals is not only inhumane, it is illegal. The Mobile SPCA helps educate people about the laws regarding cruelty to animals. We have been instrumental in the seizure of wantonly abused animals and the prosecution and conviction of their owners.

Complaints of all animal neglect, abuse and cruelty must first be directed to your local animal shelter. This includes dogs, cats, exotics and livestock. If the shelter does not take action in a timely manner please call the Mobile SPCA and we will contact the shelter, too.
