Annual Spaghetti Supper set for September 26 at the VFW
The Marshall County Humane Society cooks will be at it again soon filling the air with delicious aromas and bellies with good food. Our sixth annual Spaghetti Supper will be Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the VFW in Holly Springs. We’ll begin serving at 4:30 p.m. The tickets are $5 for all you can eat. Take- outs are available and for a little extra you can pick from a variety of homemade desserts. All the profits will be used to help the needy animals in our area. Tickets are available from Humane Society members, at the Rental Barn in Holly Springs or at the door.
Winter is on its way and our Adoption Center needs doors and heating. We need some help to get that done. If you have pertinent skills and can spare a few hours, please call Sherry Janssen (662- 252-5516) or Ellen Gaw (662-262- 7120).
Even if you can’t install heating units or hang doors the Adoption Center still needs your help with the animals’ daily care. It’s not just throwing some food down and scooping poop. Leash training and socialization are very important in the lives of the animals in our care.
The number of animals the Humane Society can handle at the Adoption Center is not only limited by space but also by the number of volunteers involved. One or two people can’t handle very many critters on a daily basis. If you can help, call Sherry Janssen (662-252- 5516) or Carmen Marlin (662-838- 6753).
Here’s an interesting tidbit about cats. One of the reasons they love to lie in the sun (besides the obvious fact that it feels good) is to manufacture vitamin D. The sunlight produces it in their coats and they lick it off!
Just because the Hummingbird Festival is over is no reason to stop filling your feeders. As a matter of fact, even if you haven’t had feeders out yet it’s not too late. This time of year thousands of the little guys pass through here on their way across the Gulf of Mexico to South America and they need all the fuel they can get. They’ll remember you next year.
Do your pet a real favor and get it spayed or neutered. It’s a real strain on a female’s system to have litter after litter and males are usually chasing a female in heat when they get in fights or run over. For your appointment call 662-252-6196.
For information on fostering, adoptions and everything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic, call 662-564- 2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
