Vet Tech, Aaron, helped one of our Delta Dogs clients recover from being spayed.

Delta Dogs is a non-profit, community supported organization that believes that a person’s ability to provide love and compassion to their pets is not based on their net worth. Our mission is to provide routine, basic veterinary services for pets (annual vaccines, flea/heartworm meds, spay/neuter) owned by people who live below the poverty line. We DO NOT provide emergency services for pets at this time. Please note that we are expecting a large uptick in applications due to COVID-19 issues, and we will try our best to assist people.

Please review our program rules before you fill out an application:

  1. You must live within the city limits of Mobile. We currently don’t have funding to support other towns in Mobile or Baldwin County.
  2. You must agree to spay or neuter all of your pets. This is not negotiable, but we provide this as a free service.
  3. You must agree not to obtain (e.g. adopt, buy, take in, etc.) any more pets.
  4. All pets in your home must be part of the Delta Dogs Program.
  5. We do not support any animal breeding.
  6. You must be able to provide evidence of your financial status (from your application) at your first appointment.
  7. You are requesting routine care for your pet.
    • Routine care is defined as annual wellness exam, vaccines, heartworm test, flea/heartworm prevention, fecal/intestinal parasite test, and spay/neuter surgery.
    • At this time, the following are examples of things NOT covered by our program: emergencies, dentals and tooth extraction, grooming care, other types of surgery, follow-up care for surgeries done by other clinics, and care of cat colonies or TNR.

After you fill out an application, a Delta Dogs representative will contact when you are next in line for an appointment. We frequently have a waiting list due to high demand for care, so it could take several weeks to be contacted.
