Call if you can’t make your appointments
Times are tough all over. We’ve seen the evidence at the Marshall County Humane Society’s low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic with more “no shows” and more people needing financial assistance. (We are using our grant money about three times faster than we had anticipated.)
The “no shows” are the people who don’t show up for their appointments without calling to let us know they can’t make it. When that happens the appointment may be wasted because we didn’t have the opportunity to give it to someone else.
Since we have been booked so far ahead it is understandable when events intervene to make keeping your appointment more difficult, but a phone call to cancel should be a priority. Often we can work with you to change the date and/or help financially.
In the long run, getting your animals fixed will save you money; you don’t wind up with as many! You won’t have as many vet bills from the males fighting and getting hit by cars chasing the female down the street. And, if your animals are young enough, spaying or neutering can prevent hormone related health problems later in their lives.
For an appointment at the Spay/Neuter Clinic or to cancel or change your appointment, call 662-252-6196.
For information on adoptions, fostering 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.

Counterfeit bills turning up in area; businesses look closely
Counterfeit 10 and 20 dollar bills have been showing up enough lately in Holly Springs that merchants are taking extra care in examining cash when it is presented. Instances of counterfeit bills being passed at local restaurants and businesses have been on the rise in the past two months. The quality of the bills is so good that only careful scrutiny would reveal the bills as fakes. Merchants are resorting to a special pen to detect counterfeit bills.
