New ordinance in effect, see veterinarian for shots
The new ordinance in Holly Springs requiring all dogs to be licensed is now in effect. To obtain a license you must present proof that your dog has been vaccinated for rabies, so, of course, lots of people have been calling the Humane Society’s low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic.
In answer to your questions, we do give rabies shots for $10 each but only when we do a spay or neuter procedure. We do not do shots only. And we are booked up so far into the future that you really should not wait. Since rabies vaccinations must be given by a licensed veterinarian, please call your full service veterinarian.
A good relationship with your full-service veterinarian is a valuable asset for any pet owner. If you don’t already have a vet, now is the time to find one and let him/her get to know you and your animals. It’s a lot easier when you have an emergency if they are already familiar with your four-leggeds
The Spay/Neuter Clinic will be closed this week and February 6. Dr. Johnson will be out in the world of conferences, honing her skills and sharing experiences with other vets.
The next time you drive by the clinic you may notice the tape all over the big window. Cracks appeared all over it the same day the big storm came through. We’ve been told the supervisors are going to board it up rather than replace it; maybe we can do something artistic.
For an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196. 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.
