Marshall County Humane Society News
Keep close eye out, pets reported missing
The Marshall County Humane Society has gotten several calls lately about missing dogs. Sad to say, the Christmas season, which is supposed to be a time of peace, love and giving, has also gotten to be a time of taking. People will steal anything that isn’t nailed down. Cars, purses and packages are there one minute and gone the next. Well, now you need to keep a close eye on your pets too.
Most of the missing dogs have vanished from the Byhalia area, especially Strickland Road, but we are all vulnerable. Keep your eyes peeled for suspicious people and vehicles lurking in your neighborhood. At least one report mentioned a woman and young man, probably a teenager, and a blue car, but don’t limit your vigilance. There could be several people involved and they may not always use the same car.
If your pet disappears inexplicably or you see unfamiliar people lurking about please call us at 662- 564-2900 and leave your information on the answer machine. The more we know the better chance we have of identifying the thieves and possibly recovering the missing animals. Look sharp, folks, and maybe we can stop these pusillanimous pilferers.
On to other business. The Clinic will be open this week but not next week. We will also be closed on January 17. We are still heavily booked up so don’t wait until the last minute to make your appointment. Call 662-252-6196 and we’ll help as best we can.
Second Saturday was a smashing success this month which encourages us to keep it up. If you would like a booth to sell your crafts or the results of closet cleaning call Lynn Pullen at 901-490-8553.
