Marshall County Humane Society News
Society has various rescued pets
Usually the animals the Marshall County Humane Society rescues are nondescript mixed breeds that have been a b u s e d and/or abandoned, but the Humane Society has recently gotten several reports about animals that, at some point, were well-cared-for pets. The group includes a poodle, a terrier, a pug and a declawed cat. These animals were all well-fed and in great shape but none of them were wearing identification collars.
If you think one of these animals could be yours, call 662-564- 2900 and be sure to leave a message. We have several folks monitoring the messages and if you can identify any of these foundlings we would be happy to reunite you.
Why all these obviously loved pets should be found wandering loose is a real mystery but it may have something to do with all the animals who have been coming into heat lately.
Pets and people are very alike in many ways but people have “the pill” and know how to “just say no.” When pets come into heat they are helpless to resist the urge to mate. Males will leave the best of homes to follow the scent of a female in heat and a female will escape to meet her man. Chasing the ladies is the main reason male dogs get into fights and get hit by cars. Your pet can’t resist answering the call of nature but you can help. Get your pets spayed or neutered. Call 662-252-6196 for an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low cost Spay/Neuter Clinic.
For information on adoptions, fostering or anything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic, call 665-564- 2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
