The City of Mobile 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 Mobile Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1885 at Temperance Hall in the Port of Mobile (Mobile, Alabama) with thirteen of Mobile’s most prominent men as charter members. Rufus Dane was the first president. The fledgling Mobile SPCA was very active in establishing the first animal welfare laws, protecting the public from rabies and dealing with the first issues of animal control. Julius Ducournau was the city’s first humane officer. In the 1950’s, Laura Jackson was elected the first female president of the Mobile SPCA and was instrumental in getting the first animal shelter built in Mobile. A stained glass window in honor of Ms. Jackson and her dedication to the animals hangs in Christ Episcopal Church, circa 1838, in downtown Mobile. After her death, her daughter Laura Jackson Corley became president. In 1976, the organization found itself with officers and members with an average age of 80 years old and needed younger members to run the organization. In that year the SPCA merged with the Animal Protection Society. The Society’s first office was located on Old Shell Road across from the Dew Drop Inn. It was opened in the summer of 1976. Ten years later, the organization moved to larger quarters on Springhill Avenue and remained there until 1990. In 1990 the Board felt it was time to purchase property and the Glenwood location was purchased. The organization remained on Glenwood Street until October 2000 when it purchased a larger property on Zeigler Circle West. The move has allowed the Society to broaden the scope of it’s projects and services and facilitate more adoptions. The Mobile Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a non-profit humane society and is one of the oldest continuously operating charitable organizations in Alabama.
