Pet Adoptions - Mobile County Alabama ~ Animal Shelter
There is a $10 adoption fee which is donated to the spay/ neuter fund at the Mobile Animal Shelter.
Jean Kocian and daughter Ashley adopted a puppy April 5 outside the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 9555 Brookpark Road, in Parma. The city was one stop in the national 2013 Tour for Life by North Shore Animal League America. The tour involves mobile animal shelters traveling throughout the United States from March to May. According to Animal League America, the 2012 tour found homes for almost 1,600 pets.
To continue the celebration of animal shelter adoptions, the world’s most beloved canine Scooby-Doo also joined forces with North Shore Animal League America and Animal Behaviorist Cesar Millan by inviting schools and libraries along the Tour For Life route to celebrate locally by hosting Mutt-i-grees Pack Parties. In conjunction with Tour For Life and its mobile adoption events, locally-hosted Pack Parties are events designed to raise funds and raise awareness for local shelters and Mutt-i-grees’ in-school curriculum programs that teach social and emotional learning skills by helping homeless animals.

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.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.The 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.
