Pets at Our Rescue Group:
About Our Rescue Group:SAVE A PET, at the Dothan Animal Shelter is a partnership between the City of Dothan’s Animal Shelter and the SAVE A PET non-profit rescue organization. This partnership’s common goal is to minimize the number of adoptable pets euthanized at the Dothan shelter. We plan to meet that goal, by…
§ 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.
Come Meet our Pets:The shelter is located at 295 Jerry Drive, in Dothan Alabama. Located outside the NW side of the Ross Clark Circle. If traveling on the circle, turn out of Ross Clark Circle onto Webb Road. After driving several rural miles watch for the Dothan Animal Shelter signs and turn left onto Omussee Drive. You will drive over a small bridge and then turn right onto Jerry Drive. The Dothan Animal Shelter is the third building on the left.
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 Adoption Process:All intersted adopters are asked to fill out an adoption application. Upon review of the application, the potential adopter will be contacted to set up a time for an interview and to meet the pet.
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.
