The City of Mobile Animal Shelter would like to thankour sponsors for their continued support. We rely on the support of businesses and individuals to carry out our mission of caring for the our shelter pets.The Animal Shelter serves the citizens of the City of Mobile. We provide many services which include: The enforcement of the Leash Law, investigation of cruelty to animal cases, administering city dog licenses, and the housing of unwanted animals. We also have a successful adoption program! Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for euthanasia. We strive to encourage responsible pet ownership and impress upon future pet owners the importance of having their pets spayed or neutered in order to control pet overpopulation. The Animal Shelter provides pick-up service for stray or injured animals. This service also applies to any unowned biting animal. (If a biting animal has an owner, said animal must be impounded, at owner expense, for 10 days at licensed veterinarian for observation.)

The mission of the City of Mobile Animal Shelter is to balance the health, safety and welfare needs of the people and animals in our City. Through our mission we will educate the public about responsible companion animal ownership, aggressively investigate animal cruelty cases, provide compassion and humane care for unwanted, stray, abused and abandoned animals in our City, administer dog licenses, give adoptable animals a second chance at a forever home, and humanely euthanize animals when necessary and appropriate.In fulfilling this mission it is the policy of the Mobile SPCA to promote adoption of shelter and homeless animals and to end the deaths of healthy and treatable shelter animals by 2015; to provide humane care and treatment for animals entrusted to us; to investigate animal cruelty and neglect; to spay or neuter all animals we offer for adoption; to promote and to aid financially spay/neuter in the community; to aid in rescuing animals in emergency situations; to assist in special financial animal-related hardship cases; and to offer educational programs for children and adults.Go south on Schillinger Rd to Howells Ferry Road. Turn Left onto Howells Ferry and we are located about 1/2 mile on RightMobile County Animal ShelterThe Mobile Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1885 at Temperance Hall in the Port of Mobile (Mobile, Alabama) with thirteen of Mobile’s most prominent men as charter members. Rufus Dane was the first president. The fledgling Mobile SPCA was very active in establishing the first animal welfare laws, protecting the public from rabies and dealing with the first issues of animal control. Julius Ducournau was the city’s first humane officer. In the 1950’s, Laura Jackson was elected the first female president of the Mobile SPCA and was instrumental in getting the first animal shelter built in Mobile. A stained glass window in honor of Ms. Jackson and her dedication to the animals hangs in Christ Episcopal Church, circa 1838, in downtown Mobile. After her death, her daughter Laura Jackson Corley became president. In 1976, the organization found itself with officers and members with an average age of 80 years old and needed younger members to run the organization. In that year the SPCA merged with the Animal Protection Society. The Society’s first office was located on Old Shell Road across from the Dew Drop Inn. It was opened in the summer of 1976. Ten years later, the organization moved to larger quarters on Springhill Avenue and remained there until 1990. In 1990 the Board felt it was time to purchase property and the Glenwood location was purchased. The organization remained on Glenwood Street until October 2000 when it purchased a larger property on Zeigler Circle West. The move has allowed the Society to broaden the scope of it’s projects and services and facilitate more adoptions. The Mobile Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a non-profit humane society and is one of the oldest continuously operating charitable organizations in Alabama.
