Nursing Home Visitation
The Mobile SPCA Nursing Home Visitation team is looking for new members. We need people who are willing to make a commitment to the program and who will show up regularly. Right now the demand for our visits far exceeds our capabilities. We visit both the Regency Atria and a different nursing home or assisted living facility once a month.
We encourage you to bring your pet for a trial and see for yourself how rewarding these visits can be. You will laugh, you will cry, you will smile as you see how much the interaction with animals means to the lonely residents.
Please email Jan Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Microchip Gift Certificates
1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime, and without proper ID, 90% never return home. A microchip for your pet is the best protection with permanent ID that can never be removed or become impossible to read. You may purchase a microchip certificate for just $20 plus an addition $5 for implantation by a registered veterinarian. Call (251) 633-3531 for more information.
What are microchips?
Microchips are tiny transponders, about the size of a grain of rice, that use radio frequency waves to transmit information about your pet. They're implanted just under the skin, usually right between the shoulder blades.
How do they work?
Each microchip contains a registration number and the phone number of the registry for the particular brand of chip. A handheld scanner reads the radio frequency of the chip and displays this information. The animal shelter or vet clinic that finds your pet can contact the registry to get your name and phone number.
Can a microchip get lost inside my pet?
Your pet's subcutaneous tissue usually bonds to the chip within 24 hours, preventing it from moving, although there's a small chance that the chip could migrate. But it can't actually get lost inside your pet.
How long do microchips last?
Microchips are designed to work for 25 years.
Can a microchip replace my pet's collar and tags?
Despite advances in universal scanners and registry procedures, microchips aren't foolproof, and you shouldn't rely on them exclusively to protect your pet. Universal scanners can detect a competing company's chip, but they may not be able to read the data. And if shelter or vet clinic personnel don't use the scanner properly, they may fail to detect a chip.
