Marshall County Humane Society News
Spay/Neuter Clinic closed Wednesday for the holiday
It’s the season for the Fourth of July. I say “season” because the firecrackers are not confined to “the day.” They are going off as I write while it’s still June and they’ll keep popping and banging until the arsenals are exhausted. If your animals are as terrified of the noise as mine are you will bring the quaking creatures inside where, hopefully, the TV, AC, VCR and all those other acronym things will cover the racket and calm the critters. Your full service vet is a good source for help if your animal really has a problem.
If you’re a parent, my dogs would really appreciate your kids limiting the explosions.
For dog owners, pay attention to your pets. Keep them in a quiet area, keep water bowls full and be patient.
The Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is closed this week for the holiday but we will be open again next Wednesday. Both kittens and puppies should be at least three months old. The procedure for cats is $30 for females and $25 for males. Prices for dogs begin at $40 for females and $35 for males 25 pounds and under and go up according to weight. For your appointment call 662-252-6196.
For information on adoptions, fostering and anything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be mailed to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
