Adoption Center is main New Year’s resolution
The new year is right around the corner.
Traditionally, we take this time to review our lives and make resolutions
to do better. Since our pets are such integral parts of our lives they
should certainly be included in the resolutions, too.
Updating shots and getting your pets spayed
or neutered are always first considerations but teeth cleaning and obedience
classes are also important.
If you and your pet have gotten a little
less svelte than you should be, a daily walk would do you both good. Besides
the exercise, you also get the opportunity for quiet companionship and
time to enjoy the world outside your door unfiltered by a television.
Organizing records is always a good idea.
If you have multiple pets, keeping a notebook with a page on each animal
is helpful. You can see at a glance when shots are due and when the last
tooth cleaning was.
The Marshall County Humane Society’s
main resolution for the new year is to complete our Adoption Center and
get it up and running. If you’d like to help with labor or materials,
give us a call at 662-564-2900. A donation to the Marshall County Humane
Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635 would be a meaningful way
to remember a loved pet or pet person.
The Humane Society hopes all of petdom
had a glorious holiday season and wishes you all the best of new year’s.
For an appointment at the Humane Society’s
Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196. We’re open every Tuesday.
For information on adoptions, fostering
or information on the Humane Society, call 662-564-2900.
While you are shopping during the new year
be sure to drop by Second Time Around, the Humane Society’s thrift
store located as 126 W. Van Dorn in Holly Springs. They are open every
Friday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and every Saturday from 8 p.m. until 1
p.m. There is always new merchandise, the prices are really cheap and
all the proceeds go to help needy animals in our area.
