The Animal Shelter serves the City of Mobile. We provide many services which include: the enforcement of the leash law, investigating cruelty to animal cases, administering dog licenses, and the housing of unwanted animals.
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 licensed veterinarian for observation.)
The Animal Shelter is open for adoptions from 9:00 - 4:30, Monday through Friday, and from 9:00 - 2:30 Saturday.
The shelter is closed from 11 until noon every day, including Saturday.
