§ Creating community outreach programs geared to educate and nurture responsible pet ownership in our community.
§ Establishing and administering a low cost spay neuter clinic in our area.
§ Supporting the Dothan Animal Shelter with funding and volunteer labor, so that everyone of our area’s misplaced pets will be given every opportunity to find a “forever home” where they will be safe, well cared for and most importantly loved. Funds and volunteer labor would also be used to improve the living conditions of animals housed at the shelter, so that all shelter pets would be housed in clean, dry, and well-maintained kennels and/or cages. And that while in the care of the shelter all animals would receive medical attention, as needed, as well as good nutrition, socialization and training.
The shelter is open for pet visits and adoptions, Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:00 pm, and the 1st and 3rd Saturday and Sunday of every month from 12:00pm until 5:00pm.
Our pets are also available for adoption on the 1st and 3rd Saturday and Sunday of every month at the Dothan PETsMART from 1:00pm - 5:00pm. Our cats and kittens are available everday in the PETsMART Love Center. Center.
If after the visit the adopter would like to proceed with the adoption, a home visit will be scheduled.
Upon completion of the home visit, pets over the age of 6 months will be scheduled for spay/neuter surgery. Those adopting pets under the age of six months will be asked to sign a spay/neuter contract.
Our adoption fee is $65.00, which includes a signed adoption contract.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
