Just in time for Mother’s Day, the Mobile County Animal Shelter is hosting the “Are You My Mother?” adoption and open house on May 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the shelter, 7665 Howells Ferry Road just east of Schillinger Road.
Adoption fees will be waived on some of the animals, said volunteer Joanne Anderson.
The day will include a microchip and rabies clinic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn and drinks will be available for a monetary donation. Prospective pet adopters are encouraged to bring dog or cat food, treats, collars and leashes for the shelter animals; all who do so will be eligible for a door prize.
“Are You My Mother?” is sponsored by SaveAStray Rescue, Angel Arms Rescue and Assist-2-Sell Buyers and Sellers Realty. Representatives from the SHACK Rescue, Labs4Rescue and SouthBARK will also be on hand. For details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
