Spay/Neuter Clinic now booking appointments for November
There’s a nip in the air, the shadows have shifted and the quality of the light has changed. Fall approaches and that means hunting season in this part of the country isn’t far away.
Years ago one avid hunter called the Spay/Neuter Clinic to make appointments for all his female hunting dogs. In the course of the conversation he explained that when hunting season arrived his females would invariably come into heat, so his males wound up chasing dear, not deer. Leaving the females at camp didn’t help; the males just went back to camp. Spaying was the only solution.
This is a heads-up for all you folks who want to use your dogs this year. The Spay/Neuter Clinic is booking now for the first week in November. If you have females to fix it’s none too soon to make arrangements.
For an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196. To find out about fostering, adoptions or anything else about our 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.
