Missing a pet? Humane Society has it
The Marshall County Humane Society is presently dogsitting three dogs of various ages and sizes we’d love to reunite with their owners. They are all apparently healthy and well-cared for and were all found inside the city limits of Holly Springs at various times. Call 662-564-2900 or 901-212-6066, describe yours and get it back.
The predicament of these unhappy critters points out how important it is for your dog to have a collar with your name and contact information on it. You can just write on a nylon leash with an indelible marker or get as cutsie as you like. If your animal is wearing some ID your chances are much better of getting it back if you get separated.
The phone is ringing off the hook with folks making appointments for the low-cost Spay/Neuter clinic. If you’ve called and left a message and haven’t gotten a call back, please try again. Some people forgot to leave phone numbers, others’ messages were hard to hear or skipped numbers. You know how cell phones are.
When you are calling for an appointment and get the answering machine your phone number is the most important piece of information you need to leave. The myriad details of how you came to have this animal, what it looks like and such can wait for the real conversation.
For an appointment at the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196. 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.

Caterers to the stars! Maia and Diane cook!
Maia Miller and Diane Greer spent more time perhaps with the recently departed movie company than anyone. They can tell you exactly what Courtney Vance and Chris O’Donnell like on their salads and what Glenn Close’s favorite meal is. Maia and Diane were “caterers to the stars” while Cookie’s Fortune was being filmed here. They had a “ball” cooking and feeding many of the movie stars and their friends. Maia and Diane are both Marshall Academy school teachers who cater as a side line. One of the stars’ favorites is a “secret recipe” salad dressing that they hope to bottle someday.
