Farmers’ and flea market set for Saturday at VFW
All the sunshine and warmth makes a body want to get outside. Hopefully it will hold for Second Saturday, the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored farmers’ and flea market, at the VFW in Holly Springs this weekend. They’ll be open Saturday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. with lots of bargains on all kinds of just-what-you-were-after items. Call Lynn Pullen at 901-262-7120 if you’d like a vendor’s booth either inside or out.
The springtime weather is good for more than gardening. If you have female pets that haven’t been fixed you may find yourself with baby pets in practically no time. (It takes 63 days from conception for cats and dogs.)
People often ask us about when to give shots to kittens and puppies. The answer is every three weeks beginning at six weeks for puppies with the parvo/distemper combination and seven weeks for kittens for feline leukemia and an upper respiratory combination until they are four months old. This schedule is aimed at catching the little one at the time when the mother’s immunities with which it was born have dissipated to the point where the shot will be effective and stimulate the baby to produce its own. (As long as the mother’s immunities are present they will interfere with the inoculation and keep it from doing its work.)
If you’d like to avoid puppy and kitten shots the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is open every Wednesday. Call 662-252-6196 for your appointment.
For information on adoptions, fostering 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.
