Marshall County Humane Society News
The season is right to adopt a new pet; Higher Ground has the right one for you
The Marshall County Humane Society doesn’t usually encourage people to adopt pets at Christmas since new pets need lots of attention and people are so busy this time of year.
But now that the major frenzy is over and the kids are still on vacation from school might be exactly the right time. It certainly can’t be too soon for the puppies at Higher Ground, our adoption center. They are about ten weeks old, are current on their shots and have already been fixed so we’ve already done some of the work for you.
These little guys really need homes for all the usual reasons and then some. It seems there’s already a new batch needing their spots at the shelter.
Now, before you call to make an appointment to pick yours out, make sure you know what you’re getting into. This will be a member of your family for years to come. He’ll need to be fed and exercised every day. He’ll need yearly checkups with a full service veterinarian. He’ll have to get shots and be wormed. And he’ll need a fenced-in yard with an ample water supply and good, dry shelter.
If you’re ready, the puppies are too. Call 664-564-2900 to make a date to see them. You may need to leave a message but Carmen assures me she will check the machine often, even on Christmas Eve.
For an appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic, call 662-252-6196.
For information on 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.

Gripping cold, ice and snow complicate holiday season
Snow and ice caused havoc in Marshall County and all of north Mississippi Tuesday when light snow started falling around midnight and was followed by freezing rain throughout the day. Weather forecasts predict more of the same during the week. Davis Wrecker answered over 20 calls, pulling cars and 18-wheelers out of ditches. About 50 tractor-trailer rigs were held by state troopers on Hwy. 78 between Byhalia and Olive Branch. Some of those trucks were carrying hogs, which were reported to be dying because of the cold weather.
