Marshall County Humane Society News

Memorial received

We hope you are all putting the Board of Supervisors’ meeting at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, September 12, on your calendar. The Supervisors will be deciding on how much, if any, money to put in the new budget for animal control for our county. A sea of faces will reinforce to them how urgent the need is. The meeting will be right next door to the tax assessor’s office in Holly Springs. We hope that whole corner of the Square will be packed for the occasion.

If you can’t attend the meeting you can still make your voice heard by calling your Supervisor. Their names and phone numbers are as follows: District 1, Willie Flemon, 662-252-2103; District 2, Eddie Dixon, 662-851-7892; District 3, Keith Taylor, 901-412-0328; District 4, George Zinn, 662-544-0996; District 5, Ronnie Joe Bennett, 662-544-1117. Unsure what district you are in? Call the Chancery Clerk’s Office at 662-252-4431.

It’s hard right now for any of us to think about anything but rescuing the Coast, but, in the face of such an overwhelming calamity, the best we can do is get our own backyards in order so that, when the opportunity comes for us to be of service, we will be in a position to do so.

In the meantime, the Marshall County Humane Society is trying to figure out how to help best with what we’ve got. If you have a great idea or want to chip in, call 662-564-2900 or any member.

On a personal, local level, the Humane Society recently received a contribution in support of our efforts in remembrance of Carolyn McCrosky, a native of our county and friend to most people and all animals. Thanks Gary Maholm for memorializing her in this special way.

The low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is now open every Tuesday but please note that we will be closed Sept. 20. Make your appt. for any other Tuesday by calling 662-252-6196. For info on adoptions, fostering or the Humane Society in general, call 662-564-2900.
