New prices for a new year
New prices went into effect at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic on January 1. To keep everyone current, new prices are as follows: Female cats are $40; males $35. Dogs, 25 pounds and under are $50 for females, $45 for males; 26 to 50 pound females are $60, males $55; 51 to 70 pound females are $70, males $65. Dogs 71 pounds and up, both males and females, will be $80 and up, the vets’ call.
You should also know that the Spay/Neuter Clinic will not be open on January 23 or February 6. We are presently booking for March. Call 662-252-6196 to make an appointment or cancel if you find you can’t make the appointment you’ve got. We have lots of people who really need your spot if you can’t use it.
One minute we’re freezing, the next we’re back in shorts. During the cold periods the birds would really appreciate what the Audubon people at Strawberry Plains call “Marvel Meal.” It’s full of the nutrition and energy birds need to keep warm and it’s a fun thing to do on a dreary day with the kids since it’s best when you get hands-on and messy making it.
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup shortening
1 cup white flour (not self-rising)
3 cups yellow corn meal (not self-rising)
Cream peanut butter and shortening together in a mixing bowl. Add white flour and yellow corn meal to creamed mixture. Mix together. You may need to use your clean hands to mix it well.
Don’t use any low-cal, no-carb, no-fat ingredients or things with additives like shortening with butter flavoring. The end-product is like a ball of dough and can be used in suet feeders or just stuck to the bark of a tree or on a stump or railing.
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.
