Our Mission

Check us out on Facebook and our website:

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 a licensed veterinarian for observation.)
