Spay-Neuter Clinic becomes homeless after March 19
On February 28, 2002, the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic officially retired the renovated school bus and moved into the space provided by our Board of Supervisors. We have had six very productive years, fixing over six thousand animals along the way. But now the building has become unsafe. March 19 will be the last clinic day at that location. Help!
We need a spot. We are exploring all the alternatives we can think of. If one of the incorporated towns or the county board of supervisors could find us a spot, that would be excellent. For our part, we are beginning by having a huge rummage sale this Saturday, March 15, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. You will find us, weather permitting, in the field at the intersection of Stewart St. and Van Dorn just east of the railroad overpass in Holly Springs.
To put the clinic into our existing animal shelter would take lots of work. If you have building materials you'd like to donate like flooring, plumbing and electrical supplies or gravel or if you have a pair of skilled and willing hands, call Bill or Sherry Janssen at the Rental Barn at 662-252-5516. If you’d like to help pay for materials, send a donation to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635 and earmark it “Building Fund.”
Our Spay/Neuter Clinic is way too important to this community to let it end. We already have a serious stray animal population and without an aggressive spay/neuter program it would be much worse. Of the thousands of animals we have “fixed” the majority have been females who would have continued to reproduce their entire lives. If you think our program is important join our effort to keep it open in whatever way you can.
Weather-postponed canine classes begin this Saturday at fire station
Due to inclement weather and potentially hazardous driving conditions, the K-9 Search One-sponsored course in canine obedience previously scheduled to begin on March 8 was postponed.
Registration and the first class will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 15, at the Holly Springs Fire Department. The six-week class will continue to meet on Saturday mornings each week through April 19, with graduation exercises on that date.
Those interested in enrolling dogs in the class should bring to the first class: their dog with leash, the dog’s choke chain or slip collar, and written proof of the dog’s inoculation against rabies, distemper, and parvo virus.
