Second Saturday has gifts for everyone
Here we are cleaning up after Thanksgiving so we can get ready for Christmas. Please think about Fido and, even though he’d love it, don’t feed him lots of leftovers. He probably doesn’t need the extra pounds and he’s likely to get a stomachache.
While you’re changing out your decorating themes keep an eye on Fido and Fluffy too. If they eat your tinsel you may wind up with a big vet bill for the operation it took to remove the intestinal obstruction.
If you still have gifts to buy, check out Second Saturday on December 9 at the VFW in Holly Springs. They’ll be open from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. and there will be all kinds of affordable potential presents.
The best present you can give your pet is an appointment to get spayed or neutered. The Marshall County Humane Society sponsors the low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic to make it easier on your pocketbook.
The clinic is usually open every Wednesday but we’ll be closed on the 13th and 27th during December. If you need to make a date for your furry friend call 662-252-6196. For adoptions, fostering and everything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-564- 2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
