Spay/Neuter Clinic reopens in Byhalia
The Marshall County Humane Society is enormously pleased to announce the reopening of our low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic on Monday, July 7, at 218 College St. in Byhalia. Like the phoenix who crashes and burns only to rise from the ashes brand new, it seems that every time the clinic has to close, it reopens in a better spot.
The county board of supervisors stepped us up from the bus to office space complete with kitchenette and, now, the board of supervisors and the Town of Byhalia are cooperating for us to use a house with a well-kept yard and big trees. We owe them many thanks and a big debt of gratitude. In return we will do our best to fix as many of these local critters as we can and thereby reduce the unwanted pet population.
Our new location is in Byhalia in the old teachers’ house across the street from the new walking trail. The clinic will be in the south (left if you’re facing it) part of the house.
It has plenty of off-the-street parking; the Byhalia police often park their cars there. The hardwood floors will make the hours of standing and walking so much easier and there is so much natural light Carmen worked half the day before she realized she’d never turned the electric lights on. The layout fit our purposes well and I’m sure our clients will appreciate the improvement.
We will be open on Mondays rather than Wednesdays at the new clinic. Hours will still be 7:30-8:30 a.m. drop off and 4:30 p.m. pickup. The prices remain at $40 for a female cat, $35 for a male; $50 for a female dog 25 pounds and under, $45 for a male; $60 for a female dog 26-50 pounds, $55 for a male; $70 for a female dog 51-70 pounds, $65 for a male.
Call 662-252-6196 for an appointment at the new low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic deluxe.
For information on adoptions, fostering or anything else about the Humane Society, call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

Red Bird left-hander signed by scout
The Boston Red Sox, represented by George Dugbee, their chief scout, signed Rabon Jordan, left-handed hurler; for the Holly Springs Red Birds of the North Mississippi League, after watching him in practice Sunday afternoon. Jordan was paid a bonus to sign a contract, which calls for him to appear in Corning, New York, March, 1959. The reason for his delayed reporting is that the Boston Red Sox are anxious for him to get his Army duty behind him before he reports to the farm club. The bonus Jordan received is not known; however, the figure reported is $10,000.
