About the City of Mobile Animal Shelter

The mission of the City of Mobile Animal Shelter is to balance the health, safety and welfare needs of the people and animals in our City. Through our mission we will educate the public about responsible companion animal ownership, aggressively investigate animal cruelty cases, provide compassion and humane care for unwanted, stray, abused and abandoned animals in our City, administer dog licenses, give adoptable animals a second chance at a forever home, and humanely euthanize animals when necessary and appropriate.

The Animal Shelter is open for adoptions at the following times:
Moday–Friday: 9am–11am, then 12pm–4:30pm
Saturday: 9am–11am, then 12pm-3:30pm
