Meet "Velma" our Pet of the Week from the Mobile County Animal Shelter!
The Mobile County Animal Shelter spays and neuters all dogs and cats before they are turned over to an adopter. The county's Spay and Neuter Program started in 2010 because of the ever-growing population of unwanted animals on the streets. In the few years since it was started, the numbers of stray animals coming into the shelter have declined to about 3,000.
If your pet is missing, please contact all your local animal shelters. It is best if you present positive identification of your pet. You can visit the Mobile County Animal Shelter at 7665 Howells Ferry Road to see if your pet was brought into the shelter by Animal Control. If so, you will have seven (7) days to reclaim your animal before it becomes the property of Mobile County Animal Control.
The Animal Shelter serves the City of Mobile
