Important Information Regarding their Adoptable Animals

If the animal was surrendered by its family, they try to learn as much as we can about its behavior. If the animal was a stray, they rely on information from our Animal Control Officers and staff, who have daily contact with the animal. All adopted animals must undergo a health and behavioral evaluation.

If you adopt from Mobile County Animal Shelter, you will receive the following benefits:

  • All pets must be spayed or neutered, as well as microchipped.
  • Preventive immunizations have been administered to the animals living at the shelter.
  • The animals will be given a one-year rabies vaccination as well as an Alabama Rabies Tag.
  • Adoptable dogs and pups (6 months and older) are tested for symptoms of heartworms and given a heartworm medication, regardless of whether the dog's test results are positive or negative during the animal's time at the shelter.
