In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, on March 17, the Mobile County Animal Shelter is offering a discount of $15 off adoption fees.

This means that some of the shelter’s “four-legged friends” will be available for as low as $5 — a fee that includes a 5-in-1 vaccine, a one-year rabies vaccination, a dewormer and the cost of spay or neuter.

The shelter is located at 7665 Howells Ferry Road, and employees say there is a large selection of puppies and dogs available for adoption.

Short Stuff is one of many pups available at the Mobile County Animal Shelter.

Among the pets looking for a home is Short Stuff — the 3-year old male basset/cattle dog to the right. According to county officials, he was found in an abandoned home in Chickasaw after the owners moved out and left him behind.
