Stray animals, especially dogs, will
probably continue to be a problem in Marshall County
until our Spay/Neuter Clinic succeeds in their mission to
get all the pets
Thank goodness so many people keep the little creatures who get dumped on their doorsteps, but every household has its limits. If you are full-to-capacity and are trying to find a home other than your own for a dumped dog, please dont bring it to the thrift store.
Everybody who works there already has as many animals as they can handle. If you really need the Humane Society to help you find a new home for an animal, call 662-564-2900.
Make sure your animals dont add to the stray pet problem by calling 662-252-6196 for an appointment to get them spayed or neutered. Our prices are reasonable and we are open every Tuesday.
If you are a bird lover, now is the time to put out new bird houses and start saving dryer lint for nest building.
For information on fostering, adoptions and our local Humane Society, call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
