Clinic to open
Tuesdays beginning September 6
Beginning in September, the Humane Societys
low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic will be open on Tuesdays
instead of Wednesdays. Please make a mental note with
stars around it if you are or will be one of our patrons.
We still have folks who think clinic is on Thursdays as
it was when we first began almost six years ago.
Getting your pet fixed is probably one of
the best favors you can do for your furry friend. It can
prevent their developing hormone-related cancers in later
life; it keeps male dogs from fighting over and straying
off chasing after the receptive ladies; it keeps females
from having litter after litter. Call 662-252-6196 for
Our meeting last Tuesday was very
productive. We are all so excited about the Adoption
Center becoming a reality and are hoping to make it a
real community project. If you would like to make a
donation to help you can mail it to Marshall County
Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635,
or, if its something like a roll of fencing, you
can bring it to the Rental Barn at 116 S. Craft St. in
Holly Springs. (Sherry has a big old long list of stuff
we need for the Center.)
Since we are all volunteers and work for our
love of the animals instead of money all of our donations
go directly to help the animals instead of a big chunk
coming off the top for administrative expenses.
Maria had a big surprise when she got to
Second Time Around to open up Saturday morning. There was
a puppy tied with a metal fish stringer (the thing with
all the hooks) to the post outside. He had wrapped it
around the post so many times he was close to strangling
himself. If shed gotten there much later it would
have been too late.
Please, please, do not drop animals off like
that. Both Second Time Around and the Clinic are only
open on certain days and not always then. Anything can
happen to a small animal abandoned in such a manner with
no certainty of rescue in sight.
If you have some time free on Fridays or
Saturdays, Maria can always use some help at the thrift
store. Shes open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on
Fridays and from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturdays so drop
by or call her at 252-6252 if youd like to help.
For general information about the Humane
Society or to find out about adoptions or fostering, call
us at 662-564-2900. If you have trouble getting through,
please let us know. You can call the Spay/Neuter Clinic
appointment number at 662-252-6196 or any of our members
to report problems with the phone. Thanks for your help.
