Mobile County Animal Shelter is responsible for the confiscation / impound of stray animals in the unincorporated areas of the county.
Working in conjunction with humane officers, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and rabies inspectors, the Animal Shelter impounds homeless and diseased animals. We work very hard to find placement for as many animals as possible with the help of the public through adoptions.

Our Adoption Process:
Adoption costs are $80 for dogs and $70 for cats. The cost includes the animal being spayed/neutered and the rabies vaccination.
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.
