Adopt a pet for the holidays
Just because it’s finally fall doesn’t mean it’s time to stop working in the yard. It’s time to plant trees, shrubs and bulbs, do major cleanup and mulch everything but the iris.
The Marshall County Humane Society urges you to approach these chores with the animals in mind. Make the trees and shrubs you plant something native to this area and something that provides food like berries or nuts for wildlife.
While you are cleaning up make sure any chemicals like antifreeze or insecticide are properly stored or disposed of.
Put a shallow dish of water out for the birds (1-1/2 inches of water is optimum) as well as the big bowl for the bigger creatures.
It’s a good time to plan and build bird houses to put up for next spring.
If you throw in some protective covering like rock piles, thick shrubs or a brush pile you’re well on your way to qualifying as a “Certified Wildlife Habitat.” It’s not hard at all and lots of fun. The National Wildlife Federation will give you the details at www.nwf.org/background.
Now is a great time to adopt a pet. The weather is great for lots of outdoor exercise and training and there’s time to learn some manners before the holidays. The Humane Society has some real cuties. Call us at 662-564-2900.
For an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic, call 662-252-6196. 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.
