Adoption center opens Saturday
The Marshall County Humane Society would like to invite everyone to a wingding this weekend. Saturday from 1-4 p.m. we’re having “Dogs and Desserts” at Higher Ground, our adoption center on the new bypass north of Holly Springs. It will be an open house to feed you yummy things and show off what we’ve accomplished so far. Of course, if you’d like to help us do more that would be OK too.
To find Higher Ground take Hwy. 7 North from Holly Springs like you’re going to Michigan City and take a left at the new bypass. The adoption center is the first building on the right on top of a hill. The trail should be clearly marked.
There will be door prizes and all kinds of delicious homemade treats. It’s worth the drive just for the view even if you don’t have a sweet tooth. When you get there the dogs have promised to be on their best behavior and each one is more appealing than the next. Lester is my personal fav. Please join us.
Speaking of dogs, a big male dog has been spotted in the Mt. Pleasant area. He’s very friendly and obviously somebody’s pet. We’d love to reunite you if he’s yours.
If you’re full up with pets and don’t need any new additions this spring our low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic may be your answer. We are really booked up, especially for dogs, so plan ahead to prevent unwanted pet pregnancies. Call 662-252-6196 for an appointment.
For information on adoptions, fostering or anything 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.
