Spay/Neuter Clinic back open; ready for appointments
Vacation is over for the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic. Dr. Johnson is clipping and snipping and we are taking appointments again. The hiatus in accepting appointments means that we are starting now booking within a reasonable time instead of June or July.
I, the date maker, have a new answering machine and, of course, lost the instruction book immediately so the message is still generic. That doesn’t seem to be a problem though since it’s already ringing off the hook.
Because we’ve been closed for a while, here’s a reminder of how we operate.
We are open every Monday but only on Mondays. Drop-off is from 7 a.m. until 8:15 a.m.; pickup is at 4 p.m. Animals must arrive under some sort of restraint. Dogs must be in carriers or on leashes. Cats must be in carriers or cloth pillow cases. (No, they don’t smother and actually like it.) When you pick up your critter it may still be groggy and will need to be on restricted activity for at least a few days to prevent pulling the stitches out.
Please pay cash. No checks, credit cards, debit cards or IOUs. A female cat is $40; a male is $35. Dogs are priced according to weight as well as sex. A female from under 25 pounds is $50; a male is $45. A female from 26-50 pounds is $60; a male is $55. A female from 51-75 pounds is $70; a male is $65.
You must make an appointment. If you just show up, it is extremely unlikely they’ll be able to squeeze you in.
For a date for your animals call 662-252-6196 or you may now also leave a message at 662-564-2900.
The number to call for all other Humane Society business such as adopting a new pet or reporting animal abuse is also 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
