Perfect present for the critter and owner
Valentine’s Day is coming up soon. If you include your furry children in the gift giving, how about expanding your horizons beyond a dog bone or a new chew toy?
If your animal hasn’t been spayed (females) or neutered (males) an appointment at the Marshall County Humane Society’s low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic would be the perfect present for the critter and its owner. If you’ve already taken care of litter control, a pet obedience class would be next best for a gift that keeps giving. An obedience class would help you and your pet learn to communicate better, always a plus in any relationship.
If you’ve taken care of both of those, there’s always a trip to the groomer’s for a bath, a fur trim and a nail clip.
For older dogs, how about a stepping stool or a ramp to make getting around easier?
Easier on the budget but requiring real commitment on your part, a daily walk could help you both get in shape. This is the gift of your time and probably the present your dog would love most.
“But what for cats?” you ask. That’s easy. They get the boxes and bows the other stuff came in. They’ll be busy with them for as long as you let them.
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.
